Japan could be the gaming industry's next frontier
 
Japan Seen as Gaming Prospect

JAPAN AND LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- Japan could be the gaming industry's next frontier now that many development opportunities around the world are spoken for, a recent Deutsche Bank study found.

With the most slot-machinelike gaming devices of any country in the world, Japan is a huge and growing market. Brian Gordon, a partner in the Las Vegas-based financial consulting company Applied Analysis, said Japan has to be seen as a huge opportunity if only because of the size of the market and turnover in slotlike gaming devices.

Already, there are 5 million devices in Japan, compared with 830,000 in the United States, 240,000 in Russia and 200,000 in Australia, a recent Deutsche Bank study of Japan found.

That includes 1.9 million pachislot machines, devices that look like slots, but that involve some skill to play and pay off in prizes that can be converted to cash off-property.

It also includes 3.1 million pachinko machines, pinball-like machines that also pay off in prizes that are converted to cash off-property.

Website Attracts Japanese Gamblers
21 September 2005

JAPAN – As reported by the Asahi News: "A new type of Web site has proved to be a gambler's online paradise. No ante is required, the topics of the bets range from baseball games to gasoline prices, and the only thing that can be lost is a bit of pride.

"And so far, there have been no problems with the country's strict gambling laws.

"These 'prediction' Web sites operate on a system that uses points.

"The services are similar to sites that give out prizes for winners in quizzes and lotteries. But the prediction sites have the spirit of gambling because more points are gained for betting against the odds.

"The points can later be exchanged for money or goods. But even the site operators say they are turning up winners…"
