Leading developer unveils its standout mobile product for Asian poker rooms at Stand D908


Leading online gaming software developer EvenBet Gaming is set to showcase an exciting and expanding poker portfolio at next week’s Global Gaming Expo Asia (aka G2E Asia).

This must-attend summit runs from 21-23 May at the Venetian Macao. Here, EvenBet – shortlisted for Best Poker and Mobile Software provider at the forthcoming EGR B2B Awards – is unpacking its latest solutions and strategies, bringing optimised poker variants to operators and suppliers all across Asia.

The growth in Asian poker rooms has been an exciting driver in the continent’s growth this past year, and EvenBet is on site to capitalise on this untapped potential with their new Poker Clubs solution, demonstrating its emerging global reach and flair for innovation.

All delegates visiting Stand D908 will be able to experience the first mobile Poker Clubs app. The app, specifically created for the ramping rise of mobile in most Asian markets, allows club managers to host and run private poker communities with their own tournaments and tables.

Since making its G2E Asia debut last year, EvenBet has continued to evolve its platform, including accelerated game-integration, a casino games management module, new game types, and exclusive features to generate higher rake and better engagement. Its game-changing components comprise:

 

  • Pre-integrated localised poker variants (notably Traditional Chinese)
  • Multi-lingual customer service (including Chinese-speaking support)
  • Legally-approved monetisation (with optional rake) for app owners
  • Fully customisable game and tournaments sets
  • Reconfigured apps, with enhanced statistics for both players, clubs, alliances and club levels

 

EvenBet CEO Dmitry Starostenkov, recently shortlisted for CEO of the Year at the Global Gaming Awards 2019, said: “It’s an exciting time for us to be returning to Macau. EvenBet now offers the widest poker suite on the market, localized for each Asian region, with 24/7 support.

“Due to regulatory difficulties, real-money online gaming is unfeasible in many Asian markets, although recent trends for change are hugely encouraging. Indeed, until now, poker clubs were a closed community where all group members are either approved or invited by owners, and user balances are handled manually. EvenBet’s world-class platform can change that for a primed audience.

“We’ve monitored the growing demand for quality real-money poker solutions, especially in Asian territories, like China, where legal issues are an obstacle to a huge base of enthusiastic poker players. Now we have developed a flexible product which finally satisfies this demand.

“Partners can use EvenBet Poker Clubs in myriad ways, from staging home events to hosting online games for big clubs with hundreds of members. It all scales with our core philosophy of delivering dependable turnkey poker solutions which hand flexible control to all operators.”

Nagasaki has re-consolidated the IR bid support from all the regional governors of Kyushu Island.

The Kyushu Regional Strategy Conference, consisting of the seven governors of Kyushu region, as well as those of nearby Yamaguchi prefecture and Okinawa prefecture, plus the leaders of regional economic organisations, released an official message supporting Nagasaki’s IR bid.

Under the principle of “Kyushu is One,” potential IR operators were advised that they were expected to offer, and could be expected to receive, support for tourism development in the entire region.

While Nagasaki had gained early support from such regional associations, the regional unity behind its bid was briefly threatened by the prospect that either Fukuoka city or Kitakyushu city might join the IR race.

Study Confirms High Rollers Gambled in Macau Despite COVID-19

A new study released by the Macau Research Centre has found that 60% of those who visited Macau during the COVID-19 pandemic did so for gambling, with each willing to spend around MOP$87,000 on average.

The research centre surveyed 103 visitors between March and May, of which 93.2% were from mainland China. With the threat of a 14-day quarantine upon leaving Macau, research showed those mainlanders chose to stay longer, with an average stay of 6.7 days. Around 59% stayed for more than five days.

The study also found that 59% of those surveyed visited Macau for gaming, while 87% had conducted gaming activities. Their gaming budget ranged from MOP$1,000 to MOP$500,000, with an average of MOP$87,000.

“Compared to the mass market, the spending decisions of this group of high-end customers may be less influenced by macroeconomic and social sentiment,” the study said.

Moreover, the visitors spent another MOP$45,549 during their visits on average, mostly on dining, shopping and hospitality.

The study also found the arrivals had visited Macau an average of 5.8 times in the last 12 months, while 83% of them had visited Macau at least three times in the last 12 months.

Macau Gambling King Stanley Ho Dies at 98
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Macau casino king Stanley Ho has died on Tuesday (May 26) at the age of 98. He was known as the godfather of Macau casinos and was instrumental in turning Macau into a gambling boomtown.

The flamboyant tycoon, who loved to dance but advised his nearest and dearest to shun gambling, headed one of the world’s most lucrative gaming businesses through his flagship firm, SJM Holdings Ltd, valued at about US$6 billion.

Ho spearheaded what is known in Macau as the junket VIP system, whereby middlemen act on behalf of casinos by extending credit to gamblers and taking responsibility for collecting debts.

Some of Ho’s children have become successful gaming operators in their own right. Daughter Pansy is the co-chairperson of MGM Resorts’ Macau unit while son Lawrence runs Melco Resorts & Entertainment.
