Japan’s Wakayama prefecture has published the local government’s “draft integrated resort (IR) implementation policy.” A consultation period with “interested parties” will run until March 3, according to the information confirmed to GGRAsia.

Wakayama’s draft IR policy outlines what facilities it expects private-sector partners to provide. The shopping list includes a wish to see a casino resort distinctive from anything offered in other Japanese regions. It also stated that the casino floor area could not exceed 3% of the total area of the proposed IR.

The Wakayama prefectural government told GGRAsia that its IR implementation policy was aimed at promoting the development of a casino complex that drew on the prefecture’s existing tourism attractions, including natural landmarks, historic sites, availability of hot springs and its unique food culture.

The document also sets out the selection criteria for choosing a private-sector partner for the IR scheme. The prefecture also said it aimed to launch in “late March or the beginning of April” a request-for-proposal (RFP) process to choose a private-sector partner.

Game Payment Technology raise international profile at ICE London
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Game Payment Technology (GPT), the UK developed cashless payments app, launched its international marketing campaign with a successful debut appearance at ICE London.  The result of a joint venture between bacta and Polar Moment, GPT’s appearance at ICE London resulted in positive interest from gaming organisation’s based in Spain, United States, France and Holland as well as a meeting with representatives from the DCMS, which was described by bacta’s Robert Gibb as being ‘both productive and encouraging.’

Expanding on GPT’s ICE London experience, Gibb stated: “It’s been a key part of the business plan to explore opportunities to introduce the app to businesses operating outside of the UK and in the process seek to develop additional revenue streams to support bacta and its members. In that respect ICE London, which attracts over 100 nationalities, is the perfect platform.

“We met with representatives from several countries and our entire time was spent demonstrating how the app works and explaining how it has been built around a commitment to social responsibility. There’s no doubt that ICE delivers a new audience and is about making contacts for the future. From the feedback we received it’s clear that GPT provides solutions that cut across cultures and jurisdictions. It was also very valuable to be able to spend some time with representatives from the DCMS and keep them updated on the project and the significant progress that has been made. We are very grateful to the team at Reflex for allowing us to share their stand space and extremely happy to start the year with successful appearances first at EAG and then ICE London.”

The GPT app is undergoing its first live tests following completion of a payment acquiring agreement with one of the top three UK acquirers, a nationally recognised brand. It represents the first such deal with a Tier 1 UK bank for cashless gaming in pubs and other venues and is a testament of the acquirer’s confidence in GPT’s business plan, product credentials, financial structure, and the team’s ability to manage a gambling e-wallet.
