26 The ’582 patent duly and lawfully issued on December 27, 2011, with Yoichi Kato, an employee of
27 UEC at the time of the invention of the subject matter of the ’582 patent, being the named inventor
28 of the ’582 patent. The ’582 patent issued from Application No. 12/252,956, filed on October 16,

5
Case 2:19-cv-01657 Document 1 Filed 09/20/19 Page 6 of 52

1 2008, and ultimately claims priority to Japanese Application No. 2007-272859, filed on October 19,
2 2007. A true and correct copy of the ’582 patent is attached hereto as Exhibit 5.

3 23. A certified copy of the prosecution history of the ’582 patent is attached hereto as
4 Exhibit 6.
5 24. Generally, the ’582 patent is directed to a gaming machine that includes a processor
6 and a display upon which symbols are variably displayed (spinning reels for example) and then
7 stopped to statically display a combination of symbols. Initially, the processor executes a base game
8 that triggers a process for awarding a prize to the player when the displayed combination of
9 symbols corresponds to one of a number of special symbol combinations of the game. Based on the
10 particular corresponding special symbol combination, the processor determines a number (how
11 many) of choice images (player-selectable images) to be displayed to the player on the display.
12 Each of the choice images is associated with a free game condition that includes (a) a number of
13 free games and (b) payout rates in those free games. The processor displays the choice images,
14 accepts a player’s selection amongst the choice images and executes the free game according to the
15 conditions of the selected choice image. The free game condition is set such that the payout rate in
16 the free game is set lower as the number of free games is larger, and the payout rate in the free
17 game is set higher as the number of free games is smaller. In this way, no matter which game
18 condition is selected by the player via the choice images, the expectation value in the free game
19 substantially becomes constant.
20 25. As described in the ’582 patent, “[c]onventionally, there has been a known gaming
21 machine that is provided with a symbol display portion including a plurality of symbol display
22 areas. The gaming machine executes a bonus game in a case where predetermined conditions are
23 satisfied (for example, the gaming machine disclosed in U.S. Pat. No. 6,517,433).” ’582 patent,
24 1:21-26. Additionally, “the conventional gaming machine described above always awards the same
25 special prize in a case where predetermined conditions are satisfied . . . [providing] a bonus game at
26 the time point that a specific symbol combination appears on the effective pay line. In addition, the
27 contents of the provided bonus game are always the same as long as the conditions are satisfied.”
28 ’582 patent, 1:38-46. Further, these conventional games “may be configured to provide a bonus

6
Case 2:19-cv-01657 Document 1 Filed 09/20/19 Page 7 of 52

1 game if one of plural styles of conditions is satisfied. In this case, the conditions for providing the
2 bonus game are plural, and therefore, the probability of achieving each condition becomes

3 different.” ’582 patent, 1:47-55.


4 26. However, as described by the ’582 patent, the conventional game that offers bonus
5 games creates problems. Specifically, “the conventional gaming machine still provides the same
6 bonus to the player. Accordingly, the conventional gaming machine may damage [] the player’s
7 feeling of expectancy for the bonus game, thus leading to lowering in interest.” ’582 patent, 1:56-
8 60. Lowered interest results in boredom and causes players to move on from the game to some
9 other game or other form of entertainment. Additionally, “the same bonus game is also provided to
10 another player who satisfies a condition whose achieving probability is high. As a result, the
11 gaming machine may cause the former player who satisfies the condition whose achieving
12 condition is low to have a feeling of inequity.” ’582 patent, 1:60-64. Likewise, a feeling of
13 inequity causes a player to move on from the game to some other game or other form of
14 entertainment.
15 27. Accordingly, in an attempt to combat the problems of lowered interest and inequity
16 created by the conventional games at the time of filing, the inventive games of the ’582 patent have
17 “been designed considering the above problems, and the present invention relates to a gaming
18 machine that may execute a bonus game in a case where a result of a base game corresponds to one
19 of plural types of conditions” but “without damaging to a feeling of expectancy of a player.” ’582
20 patent, 1:65-2:5. To accomplish this goal, the inventive game machines of the ’582 patent provide
21 the player with the ability to select the conditions of the bonus game for himself.” ’582 patent,
22 2:34-43. In addition, “the gaming machine executes a bonus game under a designed condition
23 based on the player’s selection. Accordingly, the gaming machine does not damage [the] player’s
24 feeling of expectancy for the bonus game. Moreover, the gaming machine may raise interest in the
25 bonus game” itself. ’582 patent, 2:46-50. Additionally, “the gaming machine may diversify the
26 conditions of the bonus game selectable by a player. As a result, the gaming machine may provide
27 the player with bonus games under a diversity of conditions. Thus, the gaming machine may
28 prevent the bonus game from being monotonous.” ’582 patent, 3:19-24.

2 The ’790 Patent:

3 28. UEC owns all right, title and interest in the ’790 patent entitled “Slot Machine.” The
4 ’790 patent duly and lawfully issued on August 7, 2012, with Kazumasa Yoshizawa, an employee
5 of UEC at the time of the invention of the subject matter of the ’790 patent, being the named
6 inventor of the ’790 patent. The ’790 patent issued from Application No. 12/137,025, filed on June
7 11, 2008, and ultimately claims priority to Provisional Application No. 61/034,626, filed on March
8 7, 2008. A true and correct copy of the ’790 patent is attached hereto as Exhibit 7.
9 29. A certified copy of the prosecution history of the ’790 patent is attached hereto as
10 Exhibit 8.
11 30. Generally, the ’790 patent is directed to a slot machine including a display, a
12 memory, and a processor. The processor is programmed to execute a basic game and rearrange the
13 symbols during the basic game. The processor is programmed to cumulatively store in the memory,
14 data concerning the number of predetermined symbols rearranged during the basic game. Also, the
15 processor is programmed to determine the number of times to execute a free game based upon the
16 result of an executed sub game in which the number of times to execute the sub game equals the
17 number of the predetermined symbols rearranged on the display. The processor is configured to
18 execute the free game based on the number of times determined during the sub game.
19 31. As described in the ’790 patent, “many of the conventional slot machines have been
20 known which conduct two types of games, i.e., a basic game and a free game. The basic game is
21 executed upon consumption of gaming values (such as coins or credits) correspond to the amount of
22 bet. On the other hand, the free game is executed without consuming gaming values corresponding
23 to the amount of bet.” ’790 patent, 1:33-39. In these conventional games, “it has been a common
24 routine to raise the player’s feeling of expectation for the free game by changing arrangement of
25 symbols during the free game differently from that during the basic game . . . . [H]owever,
26 irrespective of whichever of the basic game and the free game is in progress, the symbols of
27 different types have been randomly arranged in combination and sequential order. These slot
28 machines determine the content of the prize to be awarded, based on a combination of multiple

8
Case 2:19-cv-01657 Document 1 Filed 09/20/19 Page 9 of 52

1 symbols that have been arranged in a display device. Therefore, players are allowed to have the
2 feeling of expectation only for random payout based on a combination of plural types of symbols

3 that have been randomly arranged in the display device. Accordingly, a need exists for the advent
4 of a slot machine which can offer new entertainability.” ’790 patent, 1:47-2:4. In other words, the
5 player of the “conventional” game can lose interest because expectations only result from the
6 random arrangement of symbols.
7 32. To solve this problem of lowered interest in the conventional games at the time of
8 filing, the inventive game machines of the ’790 patent provided for “a slot machine . . . [that]
9 determines the number of times in executing the free game by summing numbers of times in
10 executing the free game that are determined in the sub games, respectively.” ’790 patent, 3:33-38.
11 Specifically, “the free game is executed by a total number of times which is obtained by
12 cumulatively summing the number of times in executing the free game, which is determined in each
13 sub game, to the predetermined number of times. For example, in a case where two is determined
14 in the first sub game, as the number of times in executing the free game; one is determined in the
15 second sub game, as the number of times in executing the free game; and six is the determined as
16 the predetermined number of times, the free game is executed by nine times. Therefore, the number
17 of times is cumulatively summed to the predetermined number of times in executing the free game,
18 by repeating the sub game, thereby increasing the number of times in executing the free game.
19 Thus, the slot machine [of the invention] allows players to raise expectations for the number of
20 times in executing the next free game as more sub games are executed, thereby enhancing
21 entertainability.” ’790 patent, 3:42-57.
22
23 The ’479 Patent:
24 33. UEC owns all right, title and interest in the ’479 patent, entitled “Gaming Machine
25 Capable with Free Game Play.” The ’479 patent duly and lawfully issued on July 9, 2013, with
26 Sakiko Kojima, an employee of UEC at the time of the invention of the subject matter of the ’479
27 patent, being the named inventor of the ’479 patent. The ’479 patent issued from U.S. Application
28

9
Case 2:19-cv-01657 Document 1 Filed 09/20/19 Page 10 of 52

1 No. 12/905,730, filed on October 15, 2010. A true and correct copy of the ’479 patent is attached
2 hereto as Exhibit 9.

3 34. A certified copy of the prosecution history of the ’479 patent is attached hereto as
4 Exhibit 10.
5 35. Generally, the ’479 patent is directed to a gaming machine including a display, a
6 game control device, an input device, a point provision device, and a benefit provision device. The
7 control device is operable to provide a payout corresponding to a combination of symbols displayed
8 on the screen. The point provision device provides a point corresponding to any of a plurality of
9 benefits based on a result of a lottery conducted at every time of operation of the input device. The
10 benefit provision device provides a benefit for reaching a predetermined number of points.
11 36. As described in the ’479 patent, conventional slot machine games at the time of
12 filing would shift to a bonus game or free game “when a combination of symbols displayed
13 statically as each reel is stopped matches a predetermined combination, a payout corresponding to
14 the predetermined combination is paid out to a game player. At this time, if a symbol for a bonus
15 trigger is displayed statically, the game can shift to another game mode, so-called a bonus game or
16 free game . . . which is advantageous to the game player.” ’479 patent, 1:21-31.
17 37. The inventive games of the ’479 patent improved upon this bonus or free game
18 mechanism by (among other things) making the bonus or free game stage more interactive and
19 interesting for the player: “In the present invention, in consideration of the aforementioned view, a
20 gaming machine is provided in which a new type of player participating free game can be played
21 since a point is added at every time of the game player’s operation based on a lottery on the gaming
22 machine side until the accumulated points reach the necessary number of points for awarding the
23 benefit.” ’479 patent, 1:47-53.
24 38. Claim 1 of the ’479 patent includes non-conventional hardware limitations in a slot
25 machine such as a “contact input device,” which is also referred to in the ’479 patent as “Touch
26 panel 11.” See, e.g., ’479 patent, Fig. 1; Fig. 6; 4:16-19 (“A touch panel 11 (refer to FIG. 1) is
27 provided on the front face of the lower image display panel 6, and a game player can operate the
28 touch panel 11 (refer to FIG. 1) to input various kinds of instructions.”); 48:47-51 (“a contact input

10
Case 2:19-cv-01657 Document 1 Filed 09/20/19 Page 11 of 52

1 device (e.g., touch panel 11) which is provided on the display screen of the device to constitute a
2 contact operation part operative by contact to the operation button displayed on the display

3 screen”).
4 The ’656 Patent:
5 39. UEC owns all right, title and interest in the ’656 patent, entitled “Gaming Machine
6 and Gaming Method Thereof.” The ’656 patent duly and lawfully issued on September 3, 2013,
7 with Hiroki Saito, an employee of UEC at the time of the invention of the subject matter of the ’656
8 patent, being the named inventor of the ’656 patent. The ’656 patent issued from U.S. Application
9 No. 13/220,672, filed on August 29, 2011, which is a continuation of U.S. Application No.
10 12/133,081 (now, U.S. Patent No. 8,029,354), and ultimately claims priority to Japanese
11 Application No. 2007-166962, filed on June 25, 2007. A true and correct copy of the ’656 patent is
12 attached hereto as Exhibit 11.
13 40. A certified copy of the prosecution history of the ’656 patent is attached hereto as
14 Exhibit 12.
15 41. Generally, the ’656 patent is directed to a gaming machine including a display
16 having a plurality of symbols within a matrix having N rows and M columns, and a processor which
17 controls the display. At least N number of predetermined symbols are consecutively arranged on
18 each of the first reels, so that the predetermined symbols are able to be displayed across N rows in a
19 column direction. The processor determines whether N number of all symbols displayed on a
20 column is the predetermined symbols. The processor, in the next game, holds the column on which
21 N number of the predetermined symbols are displayed. The processor changes the first reels to
22 second reels that include more of the predetermined symbols than the first reels.
23 42. As described in the ’656 patent, “some conventional gaming machines have a
24 primary game and a secondary game. If a predetermined condition is met, the secondary game
25 which is beneficial for the player is executed. Also, reels to be used are different in the primary
26 game and the secondary game. In the conventional gaming machines, the beneficial reel for the
27 player is used in the free game. However, a particular process is not executed even though wild
28 symbols fill on some reel, and next game is star[t]ed.” ’656 patent, 1:17-36.

11
Case 2:19-cv-01657 Document 1 Filed 09/20/19 Page 12 of 52

1 43. Also, in the conventional gaming machines, alignment of the wild symbols on the
2 reel is not considered . . . . [S]ince there is little possibility that only the wild symbols are displayed

3 all of the reels on display, the player’s interest for the free game may be decreased.” ’656 patent,
4 1:17-36.
5 The ’816 Patent:
6 44. UEC owns all right, title and interest to the ’816 patent, entitled “Slot Machine
7 Displaying Rendered Effects Based on Proportion of Payout Amount to Bet Amount.” The ’816
8 patent issued on April 1, 2014, with Arata Ajiro, an employee of UEC at the time of the invention
9 of the subject matter of the ’816 patent, being the named inventor of the ’816 patent. The ’816
10 patent issued from U.S. Application No. 12/210,447, filed on September 15, 2008, and ultimately
11 claims priority to Japanese Application No. 2007-244620, filed on September 21, 2007. A true and
12 correct copy of the ’816 patent is attached hereto as Exhibit 13.
13 45. A certified copy of the prosecution history of the ’816 patent is attached hereto as
14 Exhibit 14.
15 46. Generally, the ’816 patent is directed to a slot machine including a display device, a
16 plurality of reels, a bet unit for accepting a bet placed on a game by a player, a plurality of motors
17 for rotationally driving and stopping the reels, a memory for storing the bet accepted by the bet unit,
18 and a controller. The controller is configured to (a) execute a first lottery in response to the bet
19 accepted by the bet unit. The controller is configured to (b) send a signal indicating an instruction
20 for rotationally driving the reels. Additionally, the controller is configured to (c) determine an
21 amount of credits to be awarded to the player with a result of the first lottery. The controller is also
22 configured to (d) calculate a proportion of the amount of credits to the bet by dividing the credits to
23 be awarded by the bet. The controller is configured to (e) cause the display device to display an
24 image that provides a graphical indication of the proportion calculated in (d), wherein the image is
25 selected from a plurality of images based on a result of a second lottery. A probability applied to
26 the second lottery differs according to the proportion calculated in (d). The controller is configured
27 to (f) send a signal indicating an instruction to stop each of the motors with the result of the first
28

12
Case 2:19-cv-01657 Document 1 Filed 09/20/19 Page 13 of 52

1 lottery. The controller is configured to (g) when the reels come to a stop, award the amount of
2 credits determined in (c) to the player.

3 47. As described in the ’816 patent, a problem arose with conventional slot machine
4 games (even those with video effects), “[s]ince the same effects are provided regardless of bet
5 amounts, [and] the player may have difficulty anticipating an amount to be gained, distinguishing
6 between 1 bet and 50 bets for an occurrence of an award of 100 credit.” ’816 patent, 1:34-37. To
7 improve upon conventional slot machine games by solving this problem, the inventive slot
8 machines of the ’816 patent, in one aspect, “select[] an image out of the plurality of images
9 according to the result of the lottery in addition to the proportion of the amount of credits to be
10 awarded to the amount of bet. Since the slot machine determines the rendered effects according to
11 not only the proportion but also the result of the lottery, it is possible to augment the variation of the
12 rendered effects. This augmented variation does not allow the player to fully grasp his/her coming
13 gains. In this way, the player has another fun of predicting his/her gains.” ’816 patent, 2:26-35. In
14 other words, the ’816 patent attempts to avoid less interesting and “monotonous display” game play
15 of the conventional games by providing the player with some information that highlights the gains
16 that will be made, but preventing the player from fully understanding of those gains until they are
17 awarded.
18 The ’767 Patent:
19 48. UEC owns all right, title and interest in the ’767 patent, entitled “Gaming Machine
20 Allowing Selection of Stopping Order of Reels for Sustaining Player’s Anticipation, and Control
21 Method Thereof.” The ’767 patent duly and lawfully issued on March 27, 2018, with Nakayasu
22 Tsukahara, an employee of UEC at the time of the invention of the subject matter of the ’767
23 patent, being the named inventor of the ’767 patent. The ’767 patent issued from Application No.
24 14/516,999, filed on October 17, 2014, and ultimately claims priority to Provisional Application
25 No. 61/076,325, filed on June 27, 2008, and Provisional Application No. 61/055,329, filed on May
26 22, 2008. A true and correct copy of the ’767 patent is attached hereto as Exhibit 15.
27 49. A certified copy of the prosecution history of the ’767 patent is attached as Exhibit
28 16.

13
Case 2:19-cv-01657 Document 1 Filed 09/20/19 Page 14 of 52

1 50. Generally, the ’767 patent is directed to a gaming machine having a display, a
2 memory, an input device, and a CPU. The CPU is programmed to randomly determine a symbol to

3 be statically displayed in each of a plurality of symbol display regions and determine whether the
4 displayed combination of symbols along a pay line corresponds to a winning combination. When it
5 is determined that the to-be-displayed combination of symbols will not constitute a winning
6 combination, the CPU is programmed to first display symbols that could correspond to a winning
7 combination to heighten a player’s excitement, but then subsequently display the rest of the
8 symbols that do not correspond to a winning combination. On the other hand, when it is determined
9 that the combination of symbols to be displayed will constitute a winning combination, the CPU is
10 programmed to randomly display the symbols corresponding to the winning combination.
11 51. As described in the ’767 patent, conventional slot machine games “[a]fter a
12 predetermined period of time, the variable display on the display unit or the rotation of the reels is
13 stopped, and it is determined whether the static symbols form a winning combination or not. In this
14 case, the symbol groups are statically displayed in a predetermined order. . . . [F]or example, the
15 left-most symbol group is first statically displayed. In this case, if a symbol not included in any
16 winning combination is displayed first, the player may be disappointed to know that he missed an
17 award, and may not be interested in other symbols. Then, the player may be bored and
18 uncomfortable until all the symbol groups are statically displayed. Since a lot of games are usually
19 executed repeatedly in a slot game, such a disappointment may gradually discourage and deter the
20 players.” ’767 patent, 1:49-65.
21 52. To solve this problem created by conventional slot machines at the time of filing, the
22 inventive slot machine games of the ’767 patent provide for a “gaming machine that can control an
23 order in which symbols are statically displayed in symbol display regions in response to a
24 predetermined condition, and a control method thereof.” ’767 patent, 1:66-2:4. Specifically, if the
25 player is going to win, the slot machine game statically displays the reels in a random order.
26 However, if the player is going to lose, the slot machine game will statically display those symbols
27 that could correspond to a winning combination first, while statically displaying symbols that
28 would result in a loss later. See, e.g., ’767 patent, claim 1. “According to the aspect of the present

14
Case 2:19-cv-01657 Document 1 Filed 09/20/19 Page 15 of 52

1 invention, even in a case where the combination of symbols to be statically displayed along the
2 activated pay line is not a combination qualified for an award, the symbol display region displaying

3 the symbol not constituting a combination qualified for an award can be statically displayed delayed
4 from the symbol display region displaying the symbol constituting the combination. In addition, in
5 a case where the combination of symbols to be statically displayed along the activated pay line
6 corresponds to a combination qualified for an award, the stopping order of the plurality of symbols
7 display regions is randomly changed.” ’767 patent, 6:27-38. In other words, the inventive games
8 of the ’767 patent subvert the expectations of the player by controlling the stopping order of the
9 symbols. If a player is to win, the symbols are stopped in a random order. If a player is to lose, the
10 symbols are stopped such that the symbol that shows a loss occurred is delayed. In this way, the
11 player’s anticipation in the outcome is extended.
12
13 The ’808 Patent:
14 53. UEC owns all right, title and interest in the ’808 patent, entitled “Gaming Machine
15 Allowing Selection of Stopping Order of Reels for Sustaining Player’s Anticipation, and Control
16 Method Thereof.” The ’808 patent duly and lawfully issued on April 24, 2018, with Nakayasu
17 Tsukahara, an employee of UEC at the time of the invention of the subject matter of the ’808
18 patent, being the named inventor of the ’808 patent. The ’808 patent issued from Application No.
19 14/573,477, filed on December 17, 2014, and ultimately claims priority to Provisional Application
20 No. 61/076,325, filed on June 27, 2008, and Provisional Application No. 61/055,329, filed on May
21 22, 2008. A true and correct copy of the ’808 patent is attached hereto as Exhibit 17. The ’808
22 patent is related to the ’767 patent.
23 54. A certified copy of the prosecution of the ’808 patent is attached hereto as Exhibit
24 18.
25 55. Generally, the ’808 patent is directed to a slot machine having a CPU and a display.
26 For a particular spin, prior to displaying the static (stopped) result of all of the reels, the CPU
27 determines whether the combination of the symbols to be statically displayed when the reels are
28 stopped is going to be a winning combination. If it is not going to be a winning combination, the

15
Case 2:19-cv-01657 Document 1 Filed 09/20/19 Page 16 of 52

1 CPU determines, for each reel, whether the symbol to be displayed on that reel when stopped
2 matches the symbol of an “analogous” winning combination. In this context, an “analogous”

3 winning combination is a winning combination of the game that has the greatest number of symbols
4 in common with the combination of symbols to be displayed. The CPU then delays stopping each
5 real that does not have a matching symbol to the analogous winning combination until after the
6 reels having matching symbols to the analogous winning combination have been stopped and are
7 displaying their symbol. Alternatively, if the stopped combination of symbols is going to be a
8 winning combination of the game, the CPU automatically randomly displays the symbols. In this
9 manner, by statically displaying those symbols that match a winning combination first, the game
10 raises a player’s anticipation for winning as the CPU is programmed to perform a payout when a
11 winning combination is displayed.
12 56. As described in the ’808 patent, conventional slot machine games “[a]fter a
13 predetermined period of time, the variable display on the display unit or the rotation of the reels is
14 stopped, and it is determined whether the static symbols form a winning combination or not. In this
15 case, the symbol groups are statically displayed in a predetermined order. . . . [F]or example, the
16 left-most symbol group is first statically displayed. In this case, if a symbol not included in any
17 winning combination is displayed first, the player may be disappointed to know that he missed an
18 award, and may not be interested in other symbols. Then, the player may be bored and
19 uncomfortable until all the symbol groups are statically displayed. Since a lot of games are usually
20 executed repeatedly in a slot game, such a disappointment may gradually discourage and deter the
21 players.” ’808 patent, 1:62-2:12.
22 57. To solve this problem in the conventional slot machine games at the time of filing,
23 the inventive slot machine games of the ’808 patent provide for a “gaming machine that can control
24 an order in which symbols are statically displayed in symbol display regions in response to a
25 predetermined condition, and a control method thereof.” ’808 patent, 2:13-16. Specifically, if the
26 player is going to win, the slot machine game statically displays the reels in a random order.
27 However, if the player is going to lose, the slot machine game will statically display those symbols
28 that could correspond to a winning combination first, while statically displaying symbols that

16
Case 2:19-cv-01657 Document 1 Filed 09/20/19 Page 17 of 52

1 would result in a loss later. See, e.g., ’808 patent, claim 14. “According to the aspect of the present
2 invention, even in a case where the combination of symbols to be statically displayed along the

3 activated pay line is not a combination qualified for an award, the symbol display region displaying
4 the symbol not constituting a combination qualified for an award can be statically displayed delayed
5 from the symbol display region displaying the symbol constituting the combination. In addition, in
6 a case where the combination of symbols to be statically displayed along the activated pay line
7 corresponds to a combination qualified for an award, the stopping order of the plurality of symbols
8 display regions is randomly changed.” ’808 patent, 6:41-53. In other words, the inventive games
9 of the ’808 patent subvert the expectations of the player by controlling the stopping order of the
10 symbols. If a player is to win, the symbols are stopped in a random order. If a player is to lose, the
11 symbols are stopped such that the symbol that shows a loss occurred is delayed. In this way, the
12 player’s anticipation in the outcome is extended.
13
14 PATENT MARKING
15 58. Throughout the relevant time-period, UEC complied with the marking provisions of
16 35 U.S.C. § 287(a) with respect to each of the Asserted Patents.
17
18 AGA AND ITS UNAUTHORIZED USE OF UEC’S ASSERTED PATENTS
19 59. By 2005, AGA manufactured gaming devices for sale outside of Japan and was
20 entirely owned by UEC and operated as a consolidated subsidiary of UEC.
21 60. In August 2008, Okada acquired shares of AGA from UEC and UEC issued
22 additional shares of AGA to Okada.
23 61. In December 2008, a decision was made to transfer the remaining stock of AGA
24 owned by UEC to Okada. After this decision, both UEC and AGA employees began preparing for
25 this change.
26 62. The transfer of the remaining UEC owned shares of AGA began in 2009. As a
27 result, as of January 2009, while AGA was still operating as a subsidiary of UEC, UEC only held
28 49.95% of AGA’s stock and the remaining 50.05% was held by Okada.

17
Case 2:19-cv-01657 Document 1 Filed 09/20/19 Page 18 of 52

1 63. The transfer of UEC’s remaining shares in AGA was completed and AGA ceased to
2 operate as a UEC subsidiary in 2009.

3 64. Upon information and belief, Okada has presided over AGA and made all of its
4 important business decisions since AGA’s separation from UEC.
5 65. At no time during the last six years was AGA authorized to practice any of the
6 Asserted Patents by any appropriately authorized officer, director, manager or other UEC
7 employee.

14 (Inducement of Patent Infringement – Okada)
15 143. UEC repeats and re-alleges, as if fully set forth herein, the allegations contain in all
16 the preceding paragraphs ¶¶ 1 through 142.
17 AGA’s Acts of Direct Infringement:
18 144. As alleged above, with respect to Counts One through Nine, Defendant AGA has
19 directly infringed the Asserted Patents by pursuant to 35 U.S.C. § 271(a) at least by manufacturing,
20 selling and offerings for sale the Accused Products.
21 Okada Directed and Controlled AGA’s Acts of Infringement:
22 145. This additional transfer process began in 2009 and was completed such that AGA
23 ceased to operate as a UEC subsidiary in 2009.
24 146. Upon information and belief, Okada is the sole shareholder of AGA, as well as a
25 director of AGA and makes all of AGA’s important business decisions.
26 147. Specifically, upon information and belief, Okada directed employees of AGA located
27 in Nevada to develop and produce the Accused Products, which made use of the technology claimed
28

48
Case 2:19-cv-01657 Document 1 Filed 09/20/19 Page 49 of 52

1 in the Asserted Patents, without obtaining a license or permission from UEC, and thereby infringing
2 the Asserted Patents.

3 148. Further, upon information and belief, Okada directs AGA employees and their
4 activities involving the design, manufacture and/or sale of infringing game machines.
5 149. Okada is personally licensed by the Nevada Gaming Commission.
6 Okada Was Aware of the UEC Asserted Patents and that AGA Would Infringe:
7 150. Okada was aware of the Asserted Patents and knew that AGA’s manufacture, sale and
8 offers for sale of the Accused Products would constitute infringement of the Asserted Patents or,
9 alternatively, believed that there was a high probability that AGA’s manufacture, sale and offers for
10 sale of the Accused Products would constitute infringement of the Asserted Patents and took
11 deliberate steps to avoid learning of that infringement.
12 151. Okada was the founder of UEC and served as “Representative Director” from June
13 1972 to September 2004. Under Japanese law, Representative Director is generally equivalent to
14 Chief Executive Officer. From January 2006 until June 2017, Okada was a Director and Chairman of
15 the Board of Directors for UEC.
16 152. In approximately July 2010, Okada, who was the Chairman of the Board of Directors,
17 was placed in charge of UEC’s foreign business, including the United States. This included Okada
18 being placed in charge of the foreign (United States) activities of UEC’s patent department.
19 Accordingly, Okada had supervising authority and management responsibility over UEC’s portfolio
20 of U.S. patents, including the Asserted Patents since at least as early as July 2010 until his removal as
21 Chairman of the UEC Board in June of 2017. However, because Okada owned and controlled AGA,
22 Okada needed to seek and receive the permission of UEC’s Board to grant his own company, AGA,
23 any rights to UEC patents.
24 153. Further, upon information and belief, Okada initially instructed AGA employees to
25 license the UEC patent rights necessary for AGA to continue manufacturing gaming devices.
26 154. Beginning in approximately March 2009, the General Manager of the UEC patent
27 department held discussions with AGA employees regarding a patent license agreement between
28 UEC and AGA, the license was to include the Asserted Patents. Okada, as Chairman of the Board of

49
Case 2:19-cv-01657 Document 1 Filed 09/20/19 Page 50 of 52

1 Directors of UEC, wielded substantial influence and directly controlled the UEC Patent Department
2 and also knew that AGA would be transferred to his sole ownership and control.

3 155. As noted by Sam Basile, Executive Vice President and General Counsel to AGA in a
4 September 2010 email to Yoshiyuki Shoji of UEC: “the US and the Australian issued patents that
5 cover Rescue Spin/Rescue Pay are incorporated into every video and hybrid game that AGA
6 currently sells worldwide and is the basis of our defense to the Dynamite Gaming lawsuit in
7 Australia. Further, we still use transmissive reels for hybrid product currently in the field and in the
8 first version of Jackpot Battle Royal. Lastly, all AGA games incorporate patents that cover
9 anticipation sounds and excitement video graphics that are played and displayed on the last three
10 reels when at the first two reels contained feature symbols in a typical base game spin outcome.
11 Given that there are over 1200 patents and patent applications, I am certain that there are additional
12 patents that are incorporated into AGA’s games or gaming equipment but these few key examples
13 hopefully would be sufficient to demonstrate to Mr. Okada the need to grant AGA an exclusive
14 license to Universal’s patents.” (emphasis added)
15 156. Despite the explicit acknowledgement that AGA was using UEC’s patents without a
16 license, upon information and belief, Okada later instructed UEC’s patent department to cease all
17 discussions relating to the execution of a license agreement between UEC and AGA and not to seek
18 compensation from AGA for the use of any of UEC’s patents. Okada did not inform any of the other
19 members of the UEC Board of Directors Board of Directors for UEC of the failure of AGA to agree
20 to a license with UEC and never sought or obtained approval from the UEC Board of Directors to
21 grant any type of royalty-free license to AGA.
22 157. As a result, AGA has never executed a license agreement with UEC and AGA has
23 never paid any monetary consideration to UEC for use of any of UEC’s patent rights and, in
24 particular, never paid any monetary consideration to UEC for the use of the Asserted Patents.
25 158. Okada, based on the foregoing, has induced the infringement of the Asserted Patents
26 by AGA in violation of 35 U.S.C. § 271(b).
27 159. UEC has been damaged by Okada’s actions in an amount to be proven at trial.
