Suppliers to Macau are introducing changes to their products to comply with the new 2.0 regulations, which need to be completed by 2024. Any machines that can’t comply will need to be switched out, although the current low visitation and social distancing requirements mean it’s difficult to predict how much of an opportunity this will present for new sales going forward, says Ken Jolly, vice president and managing director, Asia, for Light & Wonder.
Scientific Games recently announced that it was rebranding as Light & Wonder to better reflect the strategic direction of the group, with its focus on omni channel offerings.

A shift from live-table games to electronic table games (ETG's) continues to take place in Asia and is expected to be bolstered by the introduction of new product innovations, argues Light and Wonder executive, Jim Preston.
Scientific Games said its Carnival Cow game is the first to meet Macau's new regulatory standards, which were published last fall by the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ).
Macau’s electronic gaming market won’t see a full recovery until at least 2023 and may potentially take until 2025 to rebound, suppliers said.
Operators around Asia are likely to be competing for South Korean tourists in the likely absence of Chinese travellers in the next few years, says Lloyd Robson, Aristocrat’s general manager for Asia.
