WMS Awarded Patent for 'My Poker'

Slot manufacturer WMS Gaming has been awarded a U.S. patent for “My Poker,” a multi-game video poker product that allows players to customize features like the design of the cards, the graphic setup and button placement.

WMS Gaming, since late last year a division of lottery giant Scientific Games, was issued the patent for what the patent title calls “a multi-game video poker machine and system with asymmetric customization features.”

The notice of the action by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office calls My Poker “a gaming system with asymmetric customization capabilities and a method of enabling asymmetric customization of a wagering game. A plurality of selectable game-play features are provided for utilization during the wagering game.”
