Held from 19-21 March 2019 at the Conrad Manila, Philippines.

 

Asia Gaming Brief, organizers of the conference, said the 2019 event is expected to be their biggest ever, with around 400 delegates expected over the three-days.

Key stakeholders in Asia’s gaming industry have already signed up as participants, including Belle Corporation, Caesars Entertainment, Crown Resorts, Melco Resorts, NagaCorp, Resorts World Manila, Thunderbird Resorts & Casinos from the land-based sector, and companies such as Betcris, Ladbrokes Coral, LuckyNiki, MoPlay and Pinnacle from the online sector.

On Day 1 of the conference, delegates will be able to hear about the latest technology and innovations affecting land-based casinos, such as smart table technology, the evolution of slots, the future of ETGs and how the market has reacted to skill-based games from an operator’s perspective.

Attendees will also hear from famed entrepreneur and investor Jay Walker, Founder of Walker Digital, who will be speaking about the future of gaming, as well as Earle Hall of AXESNetwork, a TED-Talks professional speaker, who will discuss how blockchain can be used in land-based casinos today.

There will also be bonus sessions looking at the wider applications of blockchain in online gaming, and opportunities coming out of the U.S. sports betting market.

On Day 3, the organizers are running “closed-door roundtables” instead of the traditional conference format – catered to the online gaming industry. The day will be welcomed by President and COO of the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation, Alfredo Lim – who will be discussing what PAGCOR has been doing in the Philippines and their thoughts on the future.

Key roundtable discussions on Day 3 include: The Online Casino Roadmap, Innovation in Game Design, Asia Licensing, European Licensing Opportunities, Future of Asia Sports Betting and Betting on India – a $60 billion opportunity.

Of course, this year’s conference is supported by a roster of key industry suppliers, including eBET, Aristocrat, Asia Live Tech, Betradar, Scientific Games, Walker Digital and many more.

“The team is really excited to bring our 2019 edition of the ASEAN Gaming Summit to fruition. Everyone in the team has worked hard to bring industry heavy-weights onto the stage and to cover issues and topics that are at the forefront of our industry,” said Felix Ng, Conference Director at Asia Gaming Brief.

“We’ve also made sure that we provide a fun, and relaxed environment for delegates to network and form new business partnerships. In addition to our new ‘Chillax Lounge’ area, we’ll also be bringing back our line up of unforgettable networking parties, cocktail nights and poker tournaments throughout the three-day event,” he added.

Those who have not yet signed up for ASEAN Gaming Summit 2019 are encouraged to do so as soon as possible. Registrations are open until 18th March 2019.

Helio Gaming set for Asian Expansion
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Helio Gaming CEO Richard Mifsud will tell Asian operators this week that the region has a great opportunity to embrace the new wave of online lottery products.

Mifsud will join nine other Malta-based suppliers in front of operators at the SiGMA roadshow in Manila, which takes place after the ASEAN gaming summit in the Philippines capital.

Helio, which made its Asian debut in May last year, has a portfolio of innovative lottery games that can be customised to individual operators.

It also offers betting on international lotteries and is about to launch a live lottery product, which will have particular resonance to audiences in the Far East.

Richard said: “The popularity and prevalence of sportsbook and casino and Asia is undisputed, but the adoption of next generation lottery has yet to be exploited, particularly outside of the big state lotteries.

“Lottery used to be the domain of lottery operators only, but it is so much easier just to add the vertical to existing operations, where you can introduce new players to your site and cross-sell really appealing opportunities to win large jackpots to existing customers.

“The live lottery element will also be very appealing and fit easily given the preference for the live dealer format in casino. I really think lottery could be the next big thing in Asia.”

Helio Gaming’s Hero games now include daily, weekly, and event-based draws, which can be branded by individual operators to appeal to a large number of player demographics.

With unlimited jackpots, the draws can use the supplier’s certified RNG or live broadcast using existing casino studios, and even include non-monetary prizes such as cars, yachts, and luxury holidays.

In addition to attending ASEAN and the SiGMA Roadshow, Richard Mifsud will also appear on a panel at the latter discussing Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain and automation within gaming.

 

About Helio Gaming:

The Sasebo Chamber of Commerce has confirmed HOGO as their official marketing partner for the purpose of developing initiatives focused around stimulating interest within the Prefecture in the development of integrated resorts. Nagasaki Prefecture recently announced its policy to aim for an IR bid, targeting an opening of 2024.

The Chamber of Commerce aims to develop interest and excitement around the development of the IR industry in the region, with the Huis Ten Bosch amusement park the most likely site for development. The group also plans to create further cooperation between IR operators and the local private sector to promote regional development via the IR industry.

HOGO will work with the chamber on the development of local initiatives and events, reaching out to the private sectors of Nagasaki and the Greater Kyushu Region. This will include the continuation of HOGO’s Executive Tour Program, which will see the Chamber of Commerce and relevant business leaders in the region visit Macau in Q2 2019 to view operations and further understand the scale and opportunities associated with the IR industry.

Chris Wieners, Managing Partner of HOGO, stated: “We will support the Sasebo Chamber of Commerce in their goal to promote understanding and awareness of opportunities for the Nagasaki and regional Kyushu private sectors as related to the development of an integrated resort in the region. We look forward to working closely with them as they work to build an attractive brand for the region that will attract interest from operators.”

The Sasebo Chamber of Commerce stated: “We are pleased to be working with HOGO on our initiatives here in Sasebo. Our goal is to develop strong support by regional business leadership on the development of an integrated resort. Our aim is to support and build the connections between international IR operators and the local private sector as well as promote overall development in the region. HOGO’s presence in Japan as well as their past performances were a deciding factor – we are happy to have them on board in supporting the Sasebo Chamber of Commerce and Nagasaki IR efforts.”
