Okada Manila Casino Resort is located on the Entertainment City gaming strip in Metro Manila, Philippines. The 110 acre complex comprises of the casino which covers over 26,000 square metres of gaming space incorporating more than 3,000 electronic gaming machines and 500 table games. It also includes 933 hotel rooms, a luxury spa, shopping area and ‘The Fountain’, dubbed as the largest multicolor dancing fountain in the world.

Originally opened at the end of 2016, the casino recently upgraded the gaming floor with TCSJOHNHUXLEY’s latest Blaze LED Technology products. As the industry’s only table technology to project custom video animations through the layout, Blaze has proven an exciting addition to any gaming floor. Using energy efficient LED lights that are fitted below the surface of the gaming table, Blaze uses patented technology to deliver flexibility, reliability and graphic capabilities like never before.

The latest high definition Blaze Sicbo tables feature a countdown clock with large format numbers to clearly illustrate the end of the betting period. This along with improved visibility of winning sections allows pit bosses and security staff to easily monitor game procedures from a distance.

In addition, Automatic Dice recognition (ADR) has been installed on the Blaze Sicbo tables, prioritising game integrity. The ADR unit processes an image of the dice from a camera inside the cover, and returns the result to the Blaze Sic Bo table for display on the gaming surface. This adds further security features to the game and also prevents dealer / player collusion.

Completing the order, the casino installed eye-catching Ora Grande displays that feature sleek curved lines with integrated LED’s and a large scale 32” screen, providing excellent visibility from multiple angles across the casino floor. Complementing existing Blaze Roulette tables, newly installed SaturnTM Glo Roulette wheels incorporate LED technology adding eye-catching visuals and prompts that heighten the game experience. Reading the current game status, the Saturn™ Glo’s discreet sensors work in conjunction with the LED technology to colour indicate ‘Place Your Bets’, ‘Finish Betting’ or ‘No More Bets’.

Tim Gilbert, VP of Table Games at Okada resort comments, “I am very pleased with our partnership with TCSJOHNHUXLEY. It has always been our commitment to provide extraordinary gaming experiences to our guests and our partner’s product portfolio enables us to do just that.”

Asia Gaming Brief, the organizer of regional gaming conference the ASEAN Gaming Summit, has confirmed the much-awaited return of its yearly conference on 21-23 March, 2022, at the Shangri-La at the Fort in Manila.

The conference, known for gathering influential gaming executives from the Philippines and across Asia, has been on a two-year hiatus as Covid-19 made it impossible to safely host a physical event.

However over the last few months, Manila in particular, has been making enormous strides to reopen its economy. Just this week, Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman Benjamin “Benhur” Abalos Jr. announced that Manila’s population is expected to reach 92 percent vaccination status by December. This has given Asia Gaming Brief confidence about the viability of its planned March dates in 2022.

“We’re excited to be able to bring back the ASEAN Gaming Summit next year, and we are encouraged by the rapid vaccination rate in the Philippines, particularly Metro Manila,” said Felix Ng, conference director at Asia Gaming Brief.

“We’re now gearing up to bring the industry its first conference in Manila post-pandemic, aimed at reigniting growth in one of Asia’s biggest gaming jurisdictions. We look forward to welcoming anyone looking to reconnect with the gaming industry in Asia once again.”

The three-day event is expected to bring around 300 gaming executives from Asia’s land-based and online gaming industry, including the region’s regulators and government officials.

“Our 2022 event will be bringing back our world-class conference, with a packed agenda made up of some of the industry’s most influential players. Taking center stage this year will be our networking activities – which are aimed at bringing business partners together, new and old,” Felix Ng highlighted.

The ASEAN Gaming Summit will be held on March 21-23, 2022 in Manila.

Establishment of New Gambling Regulator in Singapore Faces Delays

The establishment of a new gambling regulator in Singapore has been delayed.

In July, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) had said it wanted to launch a new gambling regulator, the Gambling Regulatory Authority (GRA), this year but Tan Tee How, Casino Regulatory Authority chairman says the schedule has been delayed.

He said the Covid-19 pandemic had made it difficult for the CRA officers to focus on creating the new regulator; a process that requires “intensive face-to-face discussions”. It is unknown if the new gambling regulator will finally be launched this year.

The proposed changes by the Ministry of Home Affairs included fines of up to $500,000 and seven years imprisonment for an operator of illegal gambling services.

Another amendment would allow physical social gambling among family and friends while online social gambling among families and friends would remain banned “due to the complexities of differentiation.”

The MHA also wants to introduce a prize cap of SGD100 (US$74) for mystery boxes, arcade games and claw machines arguing that this will be sufficient to address the inducement effect of high-value prizes, without increasing the regulatory burden on operators.

Singapore’s gambling regulation is currently supervised by various government agencies. Casino Regulatory Authority regulates the casinos, while MHA’s gaming regulatory agency regulates remote gambling services and fruit machines.
