Hong Kongs TGG Ventures Into Japans $40 Billion Gaming Market Joining Forces with Leading Tokyo Gaming Studio

Tokyo 21 Abr 2017

(Tokyo).– TGG, the Hong Kong-based gaming technology company, has further strengthened its market position in Japan through a recent partnership agreement with leading Japan-based pachinko gaming studio - Prime Works, in Tokyo and Osaka.


“TGG’s commitment to fostering innovation in electronic casino gaming has been significantly strengthened by teaming up with our very first partner from Japan and a 10-year Japan Gaming Veteran in the pachinko gaming creation sector,” said Raymond Chan, TGG’s co-founder and CEO. “The quality of Japanese game creations and the added capabilities they offer will enable TGG to more effectively meet the needs of the casino gaming industry at large.”

Prime Works is the first Japan-based gaming studio to have recently joined the HIRO platform, a turnkey solution developed by TGG to create an open gaming marketplace that connects game developers and the lucrative global casino gaming markets. Since 2008 Prime Works has been a leading pachinko design company in Japan with game studios in Tokyo and Osaka. In partnership with TGG, Prime Works’ game designers will team up with TGG’s engineers to bring the very best Japanese gaming creations to the global, real-money gaming market on the HIRO platform, and release them along the TGG global casino distribution network.

With the recent announcement concerning the legalising of casinos by Japan’s parliament, the Japanese casino gaming market offers enormous future potential. Investment bank CLSA estimates that Japan could emerge as a $40 billion a year gaming market, almost 2x larger than Macau at $27.1 billion and 6x of the Las Vegas Strip at $6.3 billion.

Via the HIRO API, specifically designed for electronic gaming, Japan game developers can now focus their attentions fully on content development. At the same time they can also enjoy reduced certification periods and fewer distribution barriers of the highly regulated casino gaming markets worldwide, which will soon include Japan in the near future.
