The legal tussle started when IGT filed a claim alleging that Acres had violated at least four of its patents pertaining to cashless wagering with its Foundation casino management system.

The court proceedings involved a thorough examination of the technological system, focusing on its functional design, to determine if any patent violations took place.

In November, the claims made by IGT against Acres were dismissed by the US Patent and Trademark Office.

However, the two casino gaming developers have reached a resolution through a mutual agreement in the United States District Court of Nevada.

Although the terms of the settlement have not been made public, representatives from both companies have conveyed their approval of the resolution of the patent infringement lawsuit.

We are thrilled to put this matter behind us and work competitively with IGT to build exciting new gambling experiences that can increase both player enjoyment and casino profits.
