websites from inventor William M. Wolf. This IP package is

"There are hundreds of millions of active users
playing games on social networking sites each month. Therefore,
these patented lottery-style gaming techniques comprise an
important portfolio for companies involved in online gaming systems
and social networking applications," says Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP
Patent Brokerage.

Key Characteristics &

This portfolio discloses improved lottery-style
gaming techniques for social networking websites. Social networks
have been extremely successful in monetizing their respective user
bases in regards to targeted advertisements or premium memberships.
Gaming on social networks has also grown exponentially, but despite
all the success and growth, these sites have yet to expand into
lottery-style gaming. This patent portfolio would offer online
gaming websites and applications the ability to expand into this
potentially large and lucrative area.

The disclosed technique guarantees a winner each
time the game operates, and also notifies the winning contestant at
the end of the game or round. The notification may include a
monetary reward, as an example, based on the total of entry fees
paid. A high level of security is also maintained throughout the
execution of the game such as each entry is stored in a data bank
with IDs of the contestants. Further, as the game is implemented on
the social networking websites, chances of fraud and corruption
