|AngelCiti has launched its Japanese-language online casino, targeting the $170 billion Japanese gaming market. In a culture where Pachinko is king and gambling is outlawed, it will be interesting to see how it goes. AngelCiti already provides Chinese-language online casino websites in Mandarin and Cantonese and will be adding additional Asian- language based websites, to capture more of Asia's huge online gaming market.|
'This is just another step in our greater overall deployment into the Asian marketplace,' remarked AngelCiti president George Gutierrez. 'We recently attended a major gaming conference in Singapore and had the opportunity to open many doors into the Japanese- and Chinese-language gaming markets. We feel strongly that these relationships will bear fruit in terms of acquisitions, joint ventures and other unique opportunities that we will be able to implement over the course of the next 6 to 9 months. We feel the Asian markets will be a huge contributor to our bottom line in calendar year 2004 and beyond.'
