GameSource, an electronic game platform based in Macau, will begin operations in Cambodia and Vietnam this year as part of its expansion strategy in Southeast Asia.
The company’s decision to penetrate markets in Southeast Asia follows the successful completion of trials at hotel MGM Macau, Lam Iao, managing director of Pacific Intellectuals Alliance, was quoted as saying in an article published on gaming website ggrasia.com.
“We have passed the testing phase and now we are waiting for official ‘turn on’ for revenue mode, which we anticipate happening in the next month or two at MGM Macau,” Mr Iao said.
According to Mr Iao, GameSource is a cloud-based platform offering casinos land-based access to a library of electronic games. The company’s offer includes game and data management, auditing functions, and monitoring tools for operators and regulators to track play and business performance.
“This year, we will be expanding our footprint to Cambodia and Vietnam,” he said.
In Cambodia, GameSource is to be deployed at phases II and III of casino property Jin Bei in Sihanoukville, said Mr Iao.
Macau Legend recently revealed plans to expand its presence in Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam.
Early this year, the company’s executive director Sheldon Trainor-DeGirolamo announced that Macau Legend had purchased Cambodian firm Howing Enterprises Co Ltd, which was worth about $90 million. The company also said it planned to develop an integrated resort in Siem Reap province.
Last year, 150 gambling licenses were granted to casinos in Cambodia.
