SHORTLIST A celebration of the leading companies and most dynamic individuals to have made their mark in the global gaming industry over the past year Lead Partner
Gary Roudette CEO, Players Publishing
A warm welcome to you all ahead of our inaugural Global Gaming Awards Asia ceremony. The Awards have been proudly running as the industry’s most prestigious for almost a decade in Las Vegas, and ﬁve years in London. Now it’s time for them to extend to Asia, as we venture further than ever before. The undeniable success of so many Asian companies has now made this an inevitability. Asia has, of course, been a huge gambling continent for as long as time can remember. But we felt this year was the right time to expand to the region – based on a few factors. In our existing London and Las Vegas Awards, for example, Asian companies have increasingly been nominated on
merit. The Venetian Macao has also been a memorable past winner at the Global Gaming Awards. Despite the struggles of Macau casinos amid continued Covid-19 effects, other Asian regions are currently prospering. The Philippines is seeing huge success currently, so too Singapore. In fact, Las Vegas Sands’ recent Q2 report looked like a set of scales – for every degree it tipped down on the Macau side, it went up in Singapore (home to the Marina Bay Sands). During the Awards process itself, we have heard from many B2B suppliers across the industry that Asia is a huge priority, and for many a new target for the coming months and years. That, of course, means inclusion for
A huge congratulations to the Global Gaming Awards on its debut in Asia. As is no longer a surprise to anyone, Asia is one of the fastest-growing and most dynamic markets in the industry right now. BetConstruct would like to wish good luck to all
of this year’s nominees. We are looking forward to an amazing virtual ceremony on 22 August.
Lusine Khudaverdyan Philippines Regional Director, BetConstruct
any company in this Shortlist is a mark of prestige and a measure of success. Just like our Las Vegas and London Awards, the Judging process is stringent, meaning anyone nominated has made the Shortlist purely on merit. On that note, we thank our esteemed Judges, the Gambling Insider Editorial Team, our Lead Partner BetConstruct, our Adjudicator KPMG in the Crown Dependencies and all those taking part. In our opinion, these are the best Awards in the industry, rewarding only worthy winners. Good luck everyone!
ADJUDICATOR My ﬁrst encounter with the Global Gaming Awards was in 2014, when I travelled to G2E to deliver in person the ﬁnal element of KPMG’s engagement to act as independent adjudicator to the then newly
Micky Swindale Partner, KPMG Global Gaming Team
established Awards – the ﬁnal ‘on the ground’ check against our own record of category winners; and to attend the Awards ceremony to ensure the right recipient was announced and presented with each Award. So began a beautiful relationship and, I can easily say, my favourite client job. Each year since then, it has been my welcome responsibility to join Julian Perry on-stage at the Sands in Las Vegas and, once the London Awards were launched, in the theatre at the Hippodrome. We announce first the runners-up and then, with increasingly dramatic ‘pre-pauses’ as my conﬁdence has built over the years, the winners in every category. Surely accountants were never meant to have this much fun at work?! In recent years, we have of course also moved some Awards ceremony online – including this one – but the event remains as exciting as ever. We are so delighted that the Global Gaming Awards have now expanded to Asia, and of course there is no change to the voting and adjudication process. We review the Awards’ system and tools for collecting votes (and ensuring Judges cannot vote in categories where they have a conflict), check that the winner & runner-up in each category has been determined correctly based on votes cast, and select a random sample of judges whom we contact to check the votes recorded in the system are a complete and accurate reﬂection of their voting. KPMG’s commitment to and involvement with this sector is, I believe, unparalleled and that is why we so welcome the opportunity to support the Global Gaming Awards. The combination of a thorough selection process, a highly distinguished panel of Judges, and the organisers’ commitment to independent verification of the Judges’ decisions, means any company or individual that makes it to the ﬁnal Shortlist should be extremely proud – especially in these inaugural Asia Awards.

Bloomberry Resorts Corporation reported gross gaming revenue of PHP8.0bn (US$153m) in the three months to 31 December 2021, representing a 50% year-on-year increase and 13% sequential improvement thanks to a broad easing of Covid-19 restrictions. The company is expanding its gaming footprint and is on track to open its second IR in the Philippines – Solaire North – in 2023.
The operator maintained a healthy ﬁnancial position, especially given Covid-19 restrictions across Macau, and Greater China still limiting travel. MGM China saw Q1 2022 daily gross gaming revenue hit 35% of Q4 2019 levels, outperforming the market with its focus on service and product, coupled with its strength in the premium segment. In the same period, the operator grew its market share to 13.3% compared to 11.5% a year ago.
SJM holdings group-wide results showed year-on-year improvement in 2021, with gross gaming revenue up 25.3% to HK$10.37bn (US$1.33bn). Last year, the group opened its brand new integrated resort – the HKD39bn Grand Lisboa Palace.
LAS VEGAS SANDS
The company closed the sale of its Las Vegas operating properties earlier this year, shifting its focus to Asia. While Las Vegas Sands’ Macau properties are still impacted by Covid-19 restrictions, the company is confident that its Singapore property – Marina Bay Sands – can surpass $1bn in adjusted EBITDA for 2022.
The Macau casino operator moved back into proﬁt in 2021. The company earned HKD1.33bn (US$170m) for 2021, compared to a HK$3.97bn loss for 2020. The operator is currently working on Phase 3 and Phase 4 of Galaxy Macau. Phase 3 is expected to open later this year and will feature 1,500 hotel rooms, a casino space, a 16,000-capacity arena and 400,000 square feet (37,161 square metres) of meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions space.
Melco saw solid performance in its Macau properties through the Chinese New Year holiday. Throughout the past 12 months, the company remained committed to its development plans in Macau, with construction of Studio City Phase 2 continuing to progress. Additionally, Melco has continued working on its brand new resort – City of Dreams Mediterranean in Cyprus.
The company reported a 13% year-on-year and 21% sequential increase in revenue to SG$315m (US$225m) at Resorts World Sentosa in Q1 2022. Additionally, the operator is currently working on its RWS 2.0 expansion, which will target the premium customer segment, as well as young professionals.

The IR known for transforming Singapore’s skyline reaffirmed its commitment to offering industry-leading hospitality experiences by embarking on a major $1bn reinvestment earlier this year – the biggest since the property’s opening.

Studio City is already a landmark in Macau thanks to its unique entertainment theme and experience. Currently, Studio City is
ﬁnishing off the highly anticipated Phase Two, which is cheduled to complete later this year. Studio City Phase Two will raise the bar for style and luxury in the city, bringing in two new ﬁve-star hotel towers, as well as new experiences for visitors.
South Korea’s only casino open to locals narrowed losses during Q1 2022 and remains the country’s leader in terms of annual GGR. Earlier this year, it was also announced that Kangwon Land will invest KRW28.4bn ($23.7m) in a revamp, which includes expanding the size of the casino ﬂoor by 10%.
The new integrated resort in Cebu welcomed its first guests in May, and the Philippines-based resort is already taking shape to become the ultimate leisure destination in the region. So far, the property had only unveiled the North Wing of its gaming ﬂoor, but it will be ramping up its gaming operations in the coming months. The total ﬂoor area of NUSTAR is 21,000 square metres,
making it the largest gaming ﬂoor in central and southern Philippines.
The beachfront integrated resort in central Vietnam has 617 rooms in two hotels managed by the Rosewood Hotel Group; it also contains 140 gaming tables and 300 machines in the foreign-player --only casino, multiple F&B choices plus an 18-hole Robert Trent Jones Jr golf course. The IR’s goal is to wrap a layer of luxury around an authentic experience for its customers and gaming patrons.
NEWPORT WORLD RESORTS (FORMERLY RESORTS WORLD MANILA)

Recently, it was revealed that the Alliance Global Group is granting PHP4bn ($75m) to help fund ongoing expansion projects at the integrated resort.

Blaze Roulette allows casinos to display eye-catching animations, game state prompts and winning numbers, whereas Blaze Sicbo tables feature a countdown clock with large format numbers to clearly illustrate the end of the betting period. This, along with improved visibility of winning sections, allows pit bosses and security staff to easily monitor game procedures from a distance.
JUMBO TECHNOLOGY – OCEAN PHOENIX
The MDX multi-deck electronic shufﬂer has the capacity to shuffle up to 10 decks of cards, and is the ﬁrst device on the market capable of sorting multiple decks of cards – with a one to 10-deck sorting capacity. This eliminates the risk of so-called “edge sorting” of the cards, and tackles that risk by randomly rotating the card feeder elevator 180 degrees throughout the shufﬂe.
The Taiwanese manufacturer released its latest ﬁshing game last year, Ocean Phoenix. A multiplayer game with an intuitive and user-friendly interface, it is available on Jumbo’s ARK-65 GLI six-seater – while the combination of acoustic and visual effects takes player sensation to new levels.

LIGHT & WONDER – DRAGON TAIL BACCARAT ON THE QUARTZ™ STANDALONE
This is a standalone ETG that was popular even before the pandemic. However, as it allows players to socially distance while still enjoying their favorite features from the hugely popular card game, the ETG became even more popular during the pandemic. There are a few features that are particularly interesting, such as the ability to build your own trend line or histogram with no wager and the card squeeze feature (albeit a digital one).
Last year, Light & Wonder unveiled its latest ETG – the Quartz Standalone, with Dragon Tail Baccarat being the ﬁrst game to launch on the cabinet. Dragon Tail Baccarat is the ﬁrst title to launch on the Quartz Standalone cabinet.
