WMS Gaming, Waukegan, Ill., has been assigned a patent (8,251,825) developed by Craig J. Sylla, Round Lake, Ill., for "applying graphical characteristics to graphical objects in a wagering game machine."

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Systems and methods for providing programs on wagering game machine peripherals are described. The programs may be shader programs for execution by one or more programmable shaders on a graphics processing unit. The programs may provide a graphical result, e.g. an output on a display, or may provide a non-graphical result of a computation to a general purpose processor on the wagering game machine."
