Hong Kong-based TGG Takara Gaming Group said on Thursday that it will start providing its gaming machine product to Solaire Resort and Casino, a property in the Philippines operated by Bloomberry Resorts Corp.
“TGG has always been eyeing the potential of the Philippines market and this agreement [with Solaire] places TGG in the best position to expand [in the] Asian VIP and rapid growing middle-class market, who spent billions in casinos every year,” the firm’s chief executive and co-founder Raymond Chan was quoted as saying in a Thursday statement.
“We are excited to distribute sophisticated Asian focus entertainment experience for players from game developers around the globe, and embedding state-of-the-art GLI-approved technology towards Solaire’s casino floor through this agreement,” Mr Chan added.
TGG said previously that it had been awarded in 2016 GLI-11 certifications by gaming product testing firm Gaming Laboratories International LLC. Such certification covers TGG’s HIRO operating system, according to the company.
In January, TGG announced that it was deploying some of its product at Golden Crown Casino, a property in Poipet on Cambodia’s border with Thailand; and Super Rich Casino and Resort in the Cambodian coastal city of Sihanoukville.
"We remain fully committed to continue supporting IGT’s long-term development"
