Everi celebrates Appeal Board’s decision surrounding Sightline case

September 26, 2023

The suit involved its Cash Club Wallet and patent infringement claims from Sightline.

The US Patient Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) has ruled in Everi Payments’ favor in a recent suit filed against the Everi Holdings subsidiary.

Patent Owner Sightline Payments LLC had filed against the company and its affiliate in Texas’ US District Court, claiming that Everi’s Cash Club Wallet “infringed upon certain claims in five patents owned by Sightline.”

US District Judge Alan Albright dismissed the Texas case last summer. However, Everi filed several petitions before the PTAB during the time of its Texas case defense to challenge the claims Sightline filed. The company petitioned for partes review proceedings.

The PTAB concluded that “all of the patent claims asserted by Sightline against Everi were unpatentable and invalidated Sightline’s case against the company."

The company’s Chief Legal Officer Kate Lowenhar-Fisher took a moment to express the company’s excitement for the ruling and outlined its future plans.

She said, "Everi is gratified that after reviewing all of the facts and testimony, the PTAB found in our favor. As with all litigation, there is uncertainty and additional appeals may be forthcoming.

“Our company will continue to provide its best-in-class technology while respecting the valid intellectual property rights of others."

In other Everi news, the company recently launched the Muscogee Creek mobile app at all nine of Muscogee (Creek) Nation Casinos’ Oklahoma locations. The app was designed for “optimized player engagement,” according to the company.

Casino guests will have access to self-service features and cashless gaming options through Everi’s CashClub Wallet via the mobile app. Players can also take advantage of additional loyalty program options, as well as access to restaurant reservations.

The first phase of the rollout consists of three main modules: “Opportunities for additional player engagement, mobile marketing and pushing property content.”
