I agree that in the 4-card game you're at an obvious disadvantage whereas here you're both given a chance to get rid of a bad card and double a good one, rather like Freebet players remember the good things and tend to forget the downside. Also the dealer always qualifies so there's never the issue of having a good hand and not being paid for a win.

I think anyone who has tried to play Casino War before is going to immediately see OftM as an improvement. "It's Casino War, but I get to actually PLAY!"

So in a patent infringement lawsuit who decides who is the victor? judge or jury?



You understand that it's not up to the jury to interpret the law, right?

But juries seem to be able to know what is right or wrong, despite what the law is that particular day. Jury nullification is not always apparent. Probably why I am a free man today.

In that case, we are on the same page. I could not tell from your post.

As for whether these patents will or won't hold up, I have no idea. I have talked to lawyers who think that they will not, but I'm sure that there are equally good lawyers who think that they will. I look forward to the day when one gets challenged so we can find out.

Hmmm. Well, good news and bad news, I guess. OftM has come out of Iowa and Delaware, but is doing well in Washington State, and the Venetian trial is over, but the Nevada NGC final approval is yet to come. Opening soon/possibly already open in Manila, the Philippines. Out of Aspers in London, but into 2 other British casinos last month. Several other prospective installs after a recent show, not ready for publication. This is such a proprietary business and I am such a neophyte that I have no basis for comparison other than anecdotes from independent developers posted on here; maybe it's doing great, maybe average, maybe dying on the vine, or anywhere on that scale. But it's out there, we did receive our first royalty check a couple of weeks ago (thank you, Bally!), so I consider that a huge milestone; somebody paid us, and even if it never happens again, we got that far. :)
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I'm assuming 'come out of Iowa and Delaware' means it was tried there, and the casinos decided against continuing with it? Did they give you specific reasons why? Anything other than "It didn't make enough money?"

Congrats on first check!!!!
