sports Technologies has announced the launch of gogawi.com in Japan, which has been made available in more than 140 jurisdictions. It is an immersive betting destination offering top tournaments and games.
The company relaunched Gogawi.com in March 2021 with several updates providing more deposit and withdrawal options and aim for faster settlement times.
Aaron Speach, the CEO of Esports Technologies, said: "With its long history and deep roots in both gaming and technology, Japan has potential as an eSports wagering market. We believe Gogawi.com is an exciting and intuitive eSports wagering platform built specifically with the next generation of bettors in mind, from improved payment options to new wagering products. We are eager to have the product live, and look forward to expanding our partnerships into the Japanese market."
Japan is the birthplace of many influential video games and game developers, and has had an enormous impact on global gaming culture. The Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry is now working with the private sector to promote its esports market, which is projected to grow from 6.1 billion yen (US$56.8 million) in 2019 to 15.3 billion yen (US$140.6 million) in 2023. The ministry's goal is to generate 285 billion yen (US$2.6 billion) in economic benefits annually by 2025.
