|Sunny Casinos has launched its online sportsbook Fortune Sportsbook www.888883333.net in China. The websites were specifically designed for Chinese users, while most online gambling sites choose to have a translated version of their existing sites.|
The Chinese market is a very significant one for Internet gaming providers and, based on recent survey results, could prove lucrative.
China has 33.7 million Internet users, according to a report by China Internet Network Information Centre. 61.3 per cent access the Internet from home and 45.7 per cent log on at the office.
The Chinese are also known to like a bet. According to a recent Bear Stearns report, the Asian population has the highest propensity and frequency of wagering in the world. Furthermore, Merrill Lynch reports that Asian Internet users currently account for 8.6 per cent of the world’s online consumer spending. That figure is expected to climb to more than 25 per cent by 2005. The River City Group estimates that the Asian I-gaming will see similar growth over the same period.
And it’s all good news for Sunny Casinos.
“Great emphasis on the Chinese consumers’ needs were considered in the development of Fortune Sportsbook,” said Dr. Waldo Ramsey, Chairman of Sunny Group. “The Chinese consumer wants detailed background information on your business. They want to know your history, who you are, and where you came from. We ensured the information was provided and left no unanswered questions.”
Special interest was paid to the layout of the websites, which feature a God of Fortune, a symbol of wealth and fortune in China.
