Great news! Our patent for Riverboat Roulette was issued today. I truly appreciate the skill, expertise, and strategy employed by our attorney Jon Muskin. I'm certain that if we hadn't had the pleasure of working with him, the patent wouldn't have made it through the USPTO. Thanks Jon -- YOU ROCK!

Congratulations on the patent! Gaming patents are not easy to get these days.

I saw your game at the Golden Gate after the McNugget Challenge on July 7. They ran out of rule cards, unfortunately, but I took a voice memo of the pertinent rules.

Would you have any pictures of the game I could use on my site?

Congratulations and best continued luck to you both.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

Congrats on this allowance & well done Jon. I wonder if this signifies a change at the USPTO or if the allowance relates to the fact that RR uses a special roulette wheel which qualifies as a machine under the MoT test?

I have read this Supreme Court decision from June 19 2014 and am more confused than ever. But in my case, that is not anything new.
