Asian governments are expected to eventually regulate online gaming, though lack of legislation is still a major factor holding back potential.
When 188Bet announced its withdrawal from the UK and Irish markets in March, it was the latest in a long line of Asia-facing operators to back away from Europe’s highly-regulated igaming jurisdictions.
The conditions prevalent in the markets of East Asia mean the evolution of a more recreational online player base is following a different path to how it occurred in Europe and suppliers need to be aware of changing patterns of behaviour.
