Commitments And Contingencies Disclosure [Abstract]  


Operating lease obligations. In February 2014, we entered into a lease (the “Spencer Lease”) for a new corporate office with an unrelated third party. The 5-year Spencer Lease is for a building approximately 24,000 square feet in size, which is comprised of approximately 16,000 square feet of office space and an 8,000 square foot warehouse. The property is located in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The initial term of the Spencer Lease commenced on April 1, 2014. We paid approximately $153,000 in annual base rent in the first year, which increases by approximately 4% each year. We are also obligated to pay real estate taxes and other building operating costs. Subject to certain conditions, we have certain rights under the Spencer Lease, including rights of first offer to purchase the premises if the landlord elects to sell. We also have an option to extend the term of the Spencer Lease for two consecutive terms of three years each, at the then current fair market value rental rate determined in accordance with the terms of the Spencer Lease.

In connection with the Spencer Lease, the landlord has agreed to finance tenant improvements (“TI Allowance”) of $150,000. The base rent is increased by an amount sufficient to fully amortize the TI Allowance through the Spencer Lease term upon equal monthly payments of principal and interest, with interest imputed on the outstanding principal balance at the rate of 5.5% per annum. The TI Allowance has been classified as a capital lease on the balance sheet.  See Note 10.

Pursuant to the Spencer Lease, we have the option to terminate the Spencer Lease effective at the end of the 36th month (“Termination Date”). We must deliver written notice of our intention to terminate the Spencer Lease to the landlord at least six months before the Termination Date. In the event we exercise our option to terminate, we must pay the landlord a termination fee equal to the sum of (i) all unamortized TI Allowance amounts, plus (ii) all unamortized leasing commissions paid by landlord with respect to the Spencer Lease, plus (iii) all unamortized rental abatement amounts.

Total rent expense was $206,239 and $187,722 for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

Future minimum lease payments are as follows:

Legal proceedings. In the ordinary course of conducting our business, we are, from time to time, involved in various legal proceedings, administrative proceedings, regulatory government investigations and other matters, including those in which we are a plaintiff, that are complex in nature and have outcomes that are difficult to predict. In accordance with topic ASC Topic 450, we record accruals for such contingencies to the extent that we conclude that it is probable that a liability will be incurred and the amount of the related loss can be reasonably estimated. Our assessment of each matter may change based on future unexpected events. An unexpected adverse judgment in any pending litigation could cause a material impact on our business operations, intellectual property, results of operations or financial position. Unless otherwise expressly stated, we believe costs associated with litigation will not have a material impact on our financial position or liquidity, but may be material to the results of operations in any given period. We assume no obligation to update the status of pending litigation, except as may be required by applicable law, statute or regulation. For a complete description of the facts and circumstances surrounding material litigation to which we are a party, see Note 11 in Item 8. “Financial Statements and Supplementary Data” included in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014. There are no material updates to matters previously reported on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, except:

In-Bet litigation.  In November 2014, we filed a complaint for patent infringement against In Bet Gaming, Inc. and In Bet, LLC, alleging that their “In-Between” side bet game infringes on one or more of our patents.  The litigation is currently pending.

Red Card Gaming & AGS litigation.  In September 2012, we executed an asset purchase agreement (“APA”) with Red Card Gaming, Inc. (“RCG”), for the purchase of all the rights, title and interest in and for the game known as High Card Flush and all associated intellectual property.  The APA included customary non-compete, non-disparagement and right of first refusal provisions.  In 2014, AGS, LLC (“AGS”) purchased RCG’s rights in the APA and became the assignee of the APA.  In September 2014 we notified RCG of their material breach of the APA and discontinued contingent consideration payments.  In November 2014, RCG and AGS attempted to terminate the APA and in December 2014, filed a complaint against us alleging trademark infringement.  We filed a cross-complaint against RCG and AGS alleging conspiracy to breach the APA, misappropriation of our trade secrets, infringement of our trademark and copy rights and interference with customer relationships.  As of the date of this Report, there were pending cross motions for preliminary injunctions in which the parties seek to enjoin each other from selling the High Card Flush game.  The parties have agreed the substance of the dispute is to be heard in arbitration, which is scheduled for November 2015.
