Abstract

A network enabled gaming entertainment system, which includes one or more interactive Internet gaming stations, is disclosed. The system comprises several components, including a network system, game station and a server. The software suite supporting the gaming entertainment system communicates between the various operating systems, game technologies and the user. It also facilitates Intranet and Internet connectivity, so that each kiosk or game station is configured for interactive Intranet and/or Internet access with one or more kiosks at the same and/or remote locations. State-of-the-art sound and video systems further enhance game play. A bar code reading device is usable with the system for authentication and authorization purposes. The system is also subscriber enabled. User interfaces, which include personal computers, mobile telephone and wireless devices, are interchangeable; this allows flexibility with other types of game input devices.
