The Patent

In addition to being a key participant in the creation of the original historical horse racing product, Instant Racing, AmTote created a more advanced implementation which is protected under patent US 9.437,078 awarded Sep. 6, 2016.  The Abstract from the patent is:  An improved method for allowing players to make pari-mutuel wagers on previously-run, order-of-finish contests (PROOFCs) includes the steps of enabling the operator of a pari-mutuel wagering enterprise to: (1) access the database of race conditions pertaining to each of the PROOFCs and assemble a specified collection of PROOFCs upon which a player may elect to wager or not wager on a specific PROOFC, (2) select the number of contestants and the race conditions applicable to each of the PROOFCs so as to yield a wagering experience for the player (with sufficiently variable results and an acceptable financial return on the player’s wagers) that makes it likely the player will again use this improved method of wagering, and wherein the wagering is conducted such that whether a player’s selection is determined to be a winner depends on the performance of the selected contestant.
