TGG to enter Philippines through accord with Solaire

Takara Gaming Group said it has reached an accord with Bloomberry Resorts’ Solaire Resort & Casino to provide its gaming machine on the casino floor.

“TGG has always been eyeing the potential of the Philippines market and with this agreement, it places TGG in the best position to expand the Asian VIP and the rapidly growing middle class market, who spent billions in casinos every year,” TGG CEO and co-founder Raymond Chan said. “We are excited to distribute a sophisticated Asian-focused 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.”

TGG is the creator of HIRO, the industry’s first open source Linux platform design primarily for electronic gaming machines.  Casino operators, game designers and manufacturers can build games using TGG’s GLI-11 certified open platform with a distribution network in over ten countries and gaming jurisdictions worldwide.

In September last year, the company announced it was entering the Southeast Asia gaming market with two casino groups in Cambodia – Golden Crown and Superich the Best Casino. It is also present in Singapore and South Korea and is hoping to gain approval for Macau “in the near future.”
