Planet Bingo is Alice'd by CAFC

Planet Bingo lost under 35 USC 101 both before and after Alice v. CLS, 134 S. Ct. 2347.
See Planet Bingo v. VKGS

In the case, no difference was found between method and system claims.

As a preliminary matter, we agree with the district
court that there is no meaningful distinction between the
method and system claims or between the independent
and dependent claims. See Planet Bingo, 961 F. Supp. 2d
at 854, 857.

As to "abstract ideas,"

Abstract ideas may still be patent-eligible if
they contain an “‘inventive concept’ sufficient to ‘
transform’ the claimed abstract idea into a patent-
eligible application .” Alice , 134 S. Ct. at 2357 (quoting
Mayo Collaborative Servs. v. Prometheus Labs., Inc., 132 S.
Ct. 1289,1294,1298 (2012)).
