Following an injunction asserted by LT Game during the 2012 G2E Asia, criminal investigation proceedings were initiated by the Macau Special Prosecutor against SHFL over certain patents allegedly utilised in SHFL’s popular Rapid Table Games Multi-Game product, now called SHFL Fusion Hybrid.
SHFL, now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bally Technologies, had the product covered as a result of the injunction. That investigation has now concluded with the Macau Public Prosecutor finding no evidence that SHFL engaged in any wrong-doing. Contrary to the many failed allegations lodged by LT Game, no court in Macau has found SHFL guilty of or liable for any patent infringement. “We are extremely pleased with the decision of the Macau Public Prosecutor’s Office,” said Ken Jolly, executive vice president of SHFL entertainment (Asia).
“We have consistently and vigorously defended our products against the many complaints made by LT Games and its affiliates. We were vindicated in July 2013 on a similar issue with an acquittal by the Macau First Instance Court and are confident that we will continue to be vindicated in any appeal by LT Game.”
