A recently filed patent (Publication Number: US20230177921A1) describes a networked computer system designed to display images associated with non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on electronic gaming machines (EGMs) within a casino property. The system includes a computer server connected to multiple EGMs and utilizes a processor programmed to execute an algorithm for displaying animated sequences of computer-generated images on the EGMs' display devices.

The first claim of the patent outlines the steps involved in initiating a gaming session at an EGM. This includes receiving a request to start the session, querying a patron account database to determine the blockchain user account ID associated with the patron ID, querying a blockchain system to identify a casino charm NFT owned by the user account ID, querying a charms content database to retrieve image data related to the identified casino charm NFT, and finally rendering an image of the identified NFT on the game screen of the corresponding EGM.

The second claim expands on the algorithm by adding additional steps. These include querying the blockchain system to identify multiple casino charm NFTs owned by the user account ID, retrieving image data associated with each of these NFTs from the charms content database, rendering a charm selection screen on the EGM displaying images of each casino charm NFT, receiving a player's selection of a casino charm NFT via the charm selection screen, and rendering an image of the player-selected NFT on the game screen.

Further claims describe determining a charm luck value associated with the identified casino charm NFT, based on factors such as wagering activity and total coin-out amount. The algorithm also includes steps for generating a unique gaming session record, monitoring wagering activity during the session, and updating the charms content database with the monitored activity. Additionally, the patent describes verifying the ownership of the identified casino charm NFT and determining and initiating bonus features associated with the NFT.

In summary, the patent outlines a networked computer system that enables the display of NFT images on EGMs within a casino property. The system utilizes blockchain technology to identify and retrieve image data associated with casino charm NFTs owned by users. It also incorporates various factors, such as wagering activity and total coin-out amount, to determine the charm luck value and initiate bonus features. The system aims to enhance the gaming experience by incorporating NFTs into the gameplay on EGMs.
