Abstract
(EN)
Club cards and tickets can be eliminated by providing an application that allows a player's mobile phone to process an image of an optical machine-readable representation of data. At the end of a wagering session on a WGM, the WGM can display a barcode representing a player's winnings, an achievement, game status, etc. The player takes a picture of the barcode with his or her mobile phone. The application on the phone processes the barcode image and automatically updates an account of the player in accordance with the data represented or carried by the barcode. For instance, the mobile phone sends a request to a wagering account server to electronically deposit the winnings, as represented by the barcode, in a wagering account associated with the player's club profile.

L'invention permet de supprimer les tickets et les cartes de club en fournissant une application avec laquelle un téléphone mobile de joueur peut traiter une image de représentation lisible machine optique de données. Au terme d'une session de pari sur une WGM, la WGM peut afficher un code barres représentant les gains du joueur, un record, un statut de jeu, etc. Le joueur prend une photo du code barres avec son téléphone mobile. L'application sur le téléphone traite l'image du code barres et met automatiquement à jour un compte du joueur selon les données représentées ou portées par le code barres. Par exemple, le téléphone mobile envoie une demande à un serveur de compte de pari pour électroniquement déposer les gains, représentés par le code barres, sur un compte de pari associé au profil de club du joueur.
