Slotegrator has developed an online guide to the Asian gambling market: The Slotegrator Guide to iGaming in Asia
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The Asian gambling market is highly saturated and very complex. The Slotegrator Guide to iGaming in Asia, a new ebook, covers 22 Asian countries, including regulation, yearly turnover, analytical forecasts, payment methods, favorite games, and more.

Gambling is woven into the fabric of many Asian cultures, so there’s no surprise that the continent is home to a variety of massive iGaming markets, including longstanding giants and up-and-comers.

Asia is home to 60% of the world’s population (and therefore a high proportion of its gamblers and sports bettors), different levels of gambling regulation, and diverse cultures and economies, meaning operators need an appreciation for the nuances of the region’s gambling markets. This is what motivated Slotegrator, a leading software developer and aggregator, to release an ebook focused on Asian markets.

The Slotegrator Guide to iGaming in Asia provides important statistics and background information on each country, highlighting cultural and economic characteristics, describing regulations, and giving key facts about the market, including local gaming and betting preferences and popular payment methods. The ebook covers 22 different countries, including China, Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Turkey, Georgia, Iraq, Kazakhstan, and more.

The guide also covers how to localize your sports betting data feed for Indonesian players, why Bitcoin casinos are popular in Georgia, why Armenia’s market has tripled in size since 2018, and why Vietnam has launched a pilot program to test the potential of regulated gambling.

While some things are popular everywhere (e.g. betting on football), casino game and sports betting preferences vary from country to country. The ebook collects game preferences in countries across Asia, including which sports are popular in India, Japan, and Kazakhstan, which players like poker rooms and which prefer live dealer dragon tiger, and where players bet on dominoes and mahjong.

One important theme throughout the online guide is the importance of cryptocurrencies, especially in countries where gambling is strictly limited or even forbidden; many players use cryptocurrencies to make deposits and withdrawals in casinos and even look for platforms that accept their chosen coin — cryptocurrency holders tend to be loyal to their chosen currency, so it pays for operators to know which ones to support.

This guide is ideal for aspiring entrepreneurs looking to enter the Asian market, land-based casino operators planning to open an online destination, investors with an eye on the iGaming space, and anyone interested in gambling and sports betting in Asia.

Vote on Macau Junket Bill to Take Place This Month

Published

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Macau’s new junket law is expected to be presented to the Legislative Assembly for its final vote on December 15, after the body debating its conditions signs off on its opinion on December 9.

According to reports, the bill will prohibit junkets, agents or management companies from receiving funds for gaming purposes, subject to administrative penalty, if the funds are not intended for gaming purposes, those involved can face criminal penalties.

Under the new bill, junkets and agents will have to open accounts with the gaming concessionaires, where they can deposit gaming-related cash and chips. However, the funds must be owned by the junket or agent.

Gaming concessionaires will be able to open individual accounts for players to deposit funds and chips, but all transactions must be documented and comply with anti-money laundering legislation.

The new law defines a two to five-year prison sentence for illegal acceptance of deposits.

Under the new junket law, junkets will only be allowed to operate with one of the six concessionaires, while all junket applications will be decided on by the Secretary for Economy and Finance, whereas previously these were handled by the gaming watchdog (DICJ).

The current 46 license junkets are expected to be able to maintain their licenses after the new gaming concessions come into effect on January 1, provided they sign an agreement with a concessionaire. Only companies will be able to obtain junket licenses, whereas previously individuals could also register as junkets. The companies will be required to prove at least MOP10 million ($1.24m) in share capital.

After 2024, the government will decide if it wants to alter the overall number of junket operators in Macau, according to its plans for the development of the gaming sector.
