WMS Gaming Receives Video Poker Patent in United States

iGaming Business

On Christmas Eve, WMS Gaming received a patent from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a "multi-game video poker machine and system with asymmetrically accessible customization features."

Game designer Dion Aoki, vice-president and design chief Allon Englman, and senior director of games Joel Jaffe all contributed in the invention.

According to iGaming Business, the patent also includes, "a plurality of selectable game-play features are provided for utilization during the wagering game. Players accessing the game-play features are unequally limited as to which features are available for modification, depending on means of access... All features, however, are available for game-play, regardless of means of access."

WMS Gaming is a subsidiary of WMS Industries, which is a subsidiary of Scientific Gaming.

The patent application was first filed on Nov. 2, 2011.
