To be able to answer this question, we’ll first need to dive into the gaming legislation in Japan and how it has evolved in the past few years. Just last year in 2018, Japan managed to clear the legal hurdles to obtain their Integrated Resort (IR) which is a nomenclature for casino resorts.
The Integrated Resort project refers to a comprehensive entertainment complex that incorporates facilities like shopping malls, theaters, hotels and theme parks. These types of resorts should be ready and developed by 2025 also thanks to the Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
Why Is Japan so Important?
There are still handfuls of regions in the world which haven’t been touched by the igaming industry much so far. The thing is, some of these regions have a lot of potential. For example, we can name countries like India, Brazil and of course Japan. In addition to being a potential hot spot for casinos, Japan is also a very attractive destination for international visitors. Based on the reports from Japan’s National Tourism Organization, Japan welcomed nearly 16 million visitors in the first half of 2018, which is up 16% from last year!
Given the importance of the region, there will be a Japan Gaming Congress being held on May 16-17, 2019 at the Conrad Tokyo in Japan.
This event is expected to bring together industry professionals from around the world, especially forward thinking operators and game providers. Reportedly, Jan Urbanec, the CEO of Endorphina will also be going to attend this huge conference. Endorphina is a well-known online slot game provider with an interesting and trendy portfolio that consists of over 60+ games including hits like Satoshi’s Secret, Voodoo, and Safari.
Jan Urbanec is expected to absorb more insights regarding the situation in the region, as well with getting first-hand tips on the proposed regulatory frameworks that will help inspire the company’s strategic planning for the future.
