AGB interviews representatives at RGB on where they see growth in Southeast Asia over the next few years.
What kind of trends do you foresee in Southeast Asia over the next few years?
The growth of the gaming business in South East Asian countries has been on an upward trend in the past few years and we foresee this trend to continue in the next few years.
The Philippines is expected to continue to grow with new openings and expansion in existing venues. The next potential growth market in Southeast Asia is Vietnam, where the government recently approved the opening of two new Integrated Resort Casinos, which will allow local Vietnamese to enter, albeit with certain conditions. If the government is satisfied with this trial, there is a good possibility it will allow more casinos for local Vietnamese, which certainly will have a great impact on the growth of the gaming market in Vietnam and in Southeast Asia overall. To complement this, the number of Slot Clubs in Vietnam is increasing in addition to the number of machines in the existing venues. In other parts of Indochina, mainly Cambodia and Laos, the market will certainly continue its upward trend due to new openings and expansion, such as the opening of the NAGA Casino extension. With these current developments in Southeast Asia, the road is clear for positive growth for the gaming industry in this region.
