Application: Intelligent near miss eliminator (Patent ID: US20230394922A1)

The patent filed by International Game Technology Plc focuses on enforcing responsible gaming by modifying the appearance of outcomes in electronic games to prevent triggering problem behaviors, especially near misses. The system involves detecting problem gamblers during gameplay, assessing the risk factor of each near miss, and disguising potentially triggering near misses as total misses. The responsible gaming system uses a processor, memory, and communication interface to receive game status information, detect results of wagers, identify player behavior types, and intervene in subsequent wagers based on the identified behavior and detected results.

The system also includes features such as maintaining electronic player profiles, defining player behaviors through models, applying machine learning to improve behavior detection, and determining intervention based on the probability of triggering problem gambling behavior exceeding a predefined threshold. Additionally, the method for operating an electronic game involves instructing the gaming system to modify the appearance of results without changing the actual outcome, based on the identified player behavior and detected results. The gaming system includes a communication interface, output device, processor, and memory to initiate electronic games, provide game status information to the responsible gaming system, receive instructions for modifying result appearances, determine actual results, and present outcomes accordingly, especially in electronic slots games.
