SHFL cleared after infringement investigation

Authorities in Macau have found no evidence that suppliers SHFL Entertainment (Asia) infringed either of two gaming patents.

The Bally Technologies subsidiary had been accused of the infringements by providers LT Game, who took out an injunction during the G2E Asia show in 2012.

Criminal investigation proceedings were initiated by the Macau Special Prosecutor against SHFL in relation to the firm’s Rapid Table Games product, a multi-game electronic table configuration now known as SHFL Fusion Hybrid.

However the investigation has now concluded with no evidence found of any wrongdoing by SHFL.

SHFL Entertainment (Asia) executive vice president Ken Jolly said: “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.”
