In a major step forward, inventors Craig Sedoris and Gary Kadlec have received notice of allowance on their patent application for a novel AlphaNumeric (Slot) game system. This game enables players to enter letters, numbers and symbols in virtually any combination, creating a personalized word-based slot game they then spin, trying to match some or all of those characters to win. They call it True Player Choice.
All slot players are hoping to have "Lady Luck" on their side. They can actually play word or phrase combinations like "LUCKY1", "#HAPPY" "123ABC", "I♥CATS", "#OPRAH" and "@LUNCH". kids' or spouses' names, a favorite pet, recording artist, movie star or sports team are just a few examples of the virtually unlimited possibilities players create themselves. About 2.7 billion combinations with a 6 character game. "No other slot game has given players the ability to customize a game to their personal interests," Kadlec said.
Also developed and moving well through the patent process is an instant win scratch-off lottery version utilizing the same AlphaNumeric system. Both of the very flexible game concepts have applications in the regulated online gaming markets in addition to casinos and lotteries in the US and international gaming markets. Sedoris and Kadlec see PHRAZZES as Revolutionary, being something really new, not just different. Dozens of played examples are on Instagram at #phrazzes_lottery. They have initiated the process to protect the concept internationally.
The results of their Google surveys of over 5,000 respondents show very significant interest in a word or phrase based slot game. Of particular note is that 15.2% of people who do not gamble said, "I don't gamble, but I would or might play this." There are 155,000,000 non-gambling adults just in the U.S.
