Legal Question

Asked on: 5/02/10, 8:34 am

I live in New Jersey. I have gained a Provisional Patent for a new game show. It is similar to Wheel of Forture, however, it is played at a much faster pace with different rules.

Here is my question. Because this is a game of skill, I would like to offer this game in the state of New Jersey to customers who would "pay to play" for cash prizes. The game can either be played as a table game set-up (like Blackjack) or as a Tournament. However, in either case, the winner of the game is totally based on skill. There is no element of chance involved.

I will initially be offering this game show to movie theatres, where one movie house screen will be turned into a TV Studio, which customers giving an entry fee, and the winner walking away with a Grand Prize of $500, $1,000, etc.

I just want to verify this is legal in New Jersey.
