iGaming software and business solutions provider Slotegrator has published a new guide to online gaming in Asia. The Slotegrator Guide to iGaming in Asia, a new ebook, covers 22 Asian countries, including regulation, yearly turnover, analytical forecasts, payment methods, favorite games, and more.
“Gambling is woven into the fabric of many Asian cultures, so there’s no surprise that the continent is home to a variety of massive iGaming markets, including longstanding giants and up-and-comers,” says Slotegrator, which further describes the market as “highly saturated and very complex.”
Asia is home to 60% of the world’s population – and therefore a high proportion of its gamblers and sports bettors –, different levels of gambling regulation, and diverse cultures and economies. This means operators need “an appreciation for the nuances of the region’s gambling markets,” argues the company, which led it to release an ebook focused on Asian markets.
The Slotegrator Guide to iGaming in Asia provides statistics and background information on each country, highlighting cultural and economic characteristics, describing regulations, and giving key facts about the market, including local gaming and betting preferences and popular payment methods. The ebook covers 22 different countries, including China, Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Turkey, Georgia, Iraq, Kazakhstan, and more.

“While some things are popular everywhere (e.g. betting on football), casino game and sports betting preferences vary from country to country,” notes the company. The ebook collects game preferences in countries across Asia, including which sports are popular in India, Japan, and Kazakhstan; which players like poker rooms and which prefer live dealer dragon tiger; and where players bet on dominoes and mahjong.
One important theme throughout the online guide is the importance of cryptocurrencies, says Slotegrator, especially in countries where gambling is strictly limited or even forbidden. Many players use cryptocurrencies to make deposits and withdrawals in casinos and even look for platforms that accept their chosen coin — “cryptocurrency holders tend to be loyal to their chosen currency, so it pays for operators to know which ones to support,” claims the firm.
“This guide is ideal for aspiring entrepreneurs looking to enter the Asian market, land-based casino operators planning to open an online destination, investors with an eye on the iGaming space, and anyone interested in gambling and sports betting in Asia,” says Slotegrator.
