Slotegrator offers overview of Asian gambling markets

| By Daniel O'Boyle

Asia is always a topic of interest for international gambling operators — a region with many developed economies and home to 60% of the world population. Add to this a lightning-fast rate of digital technologies adoption, and you get a continent full of opportunities.

Strict regulations and conservative governments make it a challenging landscape for operators to navigate. However, it would be a mistake to write Asia off. There seems to be a trend towards gradual legalization. Many countries where gambling has long been prohibited have witnessed the rise of black markets run by gambling syndicates, which offer no player protection or transparency. To combat this phenomenon — and monetize locals’ newfound entertainment habits — some countries are changing their approach, slowly opening the door to gambling legalization starting from brick-and-mortar operations as it happened in Vietnam.

Some regions are definitely exciting in the matter of operating but complicated to figure out. For example, fulfilled Indian market which is in the hands of individual states. Japan and Cambodia assume integrated resorts as the only way of making gambling happen.

No doubt there are countries with no chance to enter, like China or Taiwan, allowing only state-run lotteries. But other Asian countries are welcome to see the new igaming market actors.
