Asia in 60 Seconds

13 February 2009

By Emily D. Swoboda
The Asian gaming market is rife with unknowns, like when online gambling will be regulated, or what opportunities exist now for operators.


Ahead of the fast-approaching Asian i-Gaming Congress and Expo in Macau, IGamingNews asked four attending speakers to respond to the following:

1. 2009 will be the year of _____________ for I-gaming in the Asian market.

2. List three things you are hoping to accomplish or learn at AiG.

William Sutjiadi, C.E.O., Mahjong Time:

    1. 2009 will be the year of increase for the Asian I-gaming market.

    2. Showcase our latest products

    Networking

    Closing deals



Paulo Azevedo, Publisher, Macau Business:

    1. 2009 will be the year of enlightenment for I-gaming in the Asian market.

    2. Knowledge

    Awareness

    Networking



Alex Mifsud, C.E.O., Entropay

    1. 2009 will be the year of realization for I-gaming in the Asian market.


    2. How are the Europeans faring in their plans for Asia?

    How are the Asians faring in their plans to modernize their operations and to move out of Asia and into places like Europe?

    How much of the payment challenge is solvable by ourselves, because we are a payments company, and the other people in the payments sector?



Marcel Puyk, C.E.O., Cellectivity

    1. 2009 will be the year of status quo for I-gaming in the Asian market.


    2. I'd really like to learn more about game formats -- what works; what doesn't work.

    My personal interest will be about mobile -- what do people really think about mobile? It's such a big market for mobile, but is gaming going to be on those mobiles in the next 5 years?

    Really, we need some useful contacts for when the market does open up.
