  • Patent number: 11138832
    Abstract: A game system includes a receiver that receives an input of setting information related to the use of a service for an electronic money payment from a player when the service is used; a reader that reads electronic money information from a recording medium; a payment unit that makes a payment corresponding to the setting information received from the player by using the electronic money information read from the recording medium; and a setting information recorder that records first setting information input by the player. When the service is used, a screen for receiving the input of the first setting information from the player is generated when the first setting information is recorded in the setting information recorder, and a screen for receiving the input of second setting information from the player is generated when the first setting information is not recorded in the setting information recorder.
