Fraud DETECTION SYSTEm in Casino
ASSIGNEE: Angel Group Go., LTD.
US PAT. NO. 11657674-B2
The gaming industry is a dynamic and ever-evolving landscape, constantly pushing the boundaries of technology to enhance the player experience. In one of the most recent patent applications granted to Angel Group GO. is a testament to this relentless pursuit of innovation. This patent application introduces a groundbreaking table game system that leverages the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning techniques to revolutionize the gaming experience and ensure fair play.
The patent application discloses a table game system that uses cameras to capture the gaming table from a diagonal upward angle. The images generated by these cameras are then analyzed using deep learning techniques to recognize various elements of the game. This recognition capability is a game-changer in the industry, bringing a new level of sophistication to table games.
One of the key features of this system is its ability to recognize a stack of chips on the table. By analyzing the images generated by the cameras, the system can identify the number of chips and who has handled them. This feature adds an extra layer of security to the gaming process, ensuring that all players adhere to the rules and play fair.
But the system’s capabilities don’t stop there. It can also recognize a player’s hand or even an arm movement. This feature allows the system to determine who has handled the chips when they are recognized. This level of detail in recognition is unprecedented and opens up new possibilities for enhancing the gaming experience.
The AI system is also capable of determining the game-winner among the participants by analyzing the images generated by the cameras. This feature eliminates any potential disputes about the game’s outcome, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable gaming experience for all players.
Furthermore, the system can identify if a game-loser has illicitly taken chips after the end of each game while the dealer is collecting the chips bet by the game-losers. This feature adds an extra layer of security to the gaming process, ensuring that all players adhere to the rules and play fair.
One of the most intriguing aspects of this patent application is the use of deep learning to recognize cards, even if they are folded or stained by a player. This is achieved through the self-learning capability of the AI system, which can analyze a large number of images to recognize the ranks and suits of the cards. This feature is particularly useful in games like baccarat, where players often fold or stain their cards.
The patent application also discloses a fraud detection system that can read the ranks of cards distributed and check for any discrepancies. This system can also recognize the positions, types, and numbers of chips wagered by players and determine whether the collection of lost chips and the redemption for winning chips are correctly performed in accordance with the game’s result.
Interestingly, the AI system can also recognize the position and amount of chips wagered in each play position of the game table. It can compare the history of win and lose of each player obtained from the game’s result and the amount of the acquired chips with the statistical data of previous games to identify any anomalies.
In conclusion, this patent presents a revolutionary approach to table games, leveraging the power of AI and deep learning to enhance the gaming experience, ensure fair play, and detect any fraudulent activities. This technology is set to transform the gaming industry, making table games more secure, fair, and enjoyable for all players. As we move forward, it’s exciting to imagine how this technology will continue to evolve and shape the future of gaming.
