Over ten million Japanese residents are currently players at online casinos

Internet casino industry booms in Asia

(Macau / Japan).- Speakers at the recent G2E in Macau agreed that the Internet casino industry is experiencing the start of a very rosy period in the Asian market. Japan was cited as on its way to becoming the second-largest gaming market, and possibly the largest in online gambling, in Asia.

acau has already surpassed Las Vegas as the casino gambling capitol of the world. Now, even US casino operators concede Asian gambling will soon outweigh that of the entire US. “The growth of the market in Asia has been incredible,” said the head of the American Gaming Association, Frank Fahrenkopf. He acknowledged gaming revenue in Asia would surpass the US "in three to five years."

Over ten million Japanese residents are currently players at online casinos. The gaming tradition of Asian cultures has dictated a ready-made customer base for online gambling.
