The decline of customers to land-based casinos despite the gaming industry performing well can only indicate one thing; customers’ gaming habits have evolved.
In a Colorado Casino questionnaire poll of 5,000 Singaporean players, 79% of players state that they are drawn to the vast choice of games offered by online entertainment platforms that can provide high bonuses and guarantee a quick payout. 75% of players specifically choose this brand as their go-to online entertainment platform as they value reliability over variety.
Singapore: According to Resorts World Sentosa, casino customers are gradually adapting to playing online games with their mobile phones. One particular online entertainment platform has even achieved an impressive feat, attracting more than 85% of Sentosa’s customers this year alone.
While most online gambling businesses set profits at around 25%, meaning that for every S$100 invested, the bookmaker will lose S$75; This online entertainment platform me88 has announced an amazing “200% Conor McGregor Welcome Bonus” offer which claims to be the best offer available in the Asian market.
One week after the offer was announced, statistics showed that 5,523 new players won S$20,000 and more after claiming the offer.
Shee Zhi Leong from Yishun was one of the biggest winners yesterday when he won a staggering S$114,847 with just a S$500 bet.
Currently, more than 6,500 Sentosa customers have won S$200,000 or more on me88. Not to mention, the Asian Gaming Commission has also released its first quarter financial report acknowledging that the International Entertainment Group me88 has paid out over S$90 million to winners across Asia. In this regard, our reporter had an exclusive interview with the CEO of the International Entertainment Group, Mr. Wong.
Q: “From a business perspective, how can you make a reasonable offer that is profitable?”
“There are a lot of misconceptions about the way we operate our business. Our profits are not determined by players winning or losing. We are a trusted platform backed by international gaming providers and our profits come from the commissions and rewards they give. The more people who use our platform, the more commissions we are given,” said Mr. Wong.
“In addition to winning over Singapore players, we have also taken the lead in Asian gaming markets such as Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam as the largest and most reliable platform. With such outstanding performance, we are able to provide the best service and better negotiate with game providers as well as online bookmakers, enabling us to offer the highest odds to our members,” Mr. Wong proudly explained.
At the end of the interview, Mr. Wong thanked players for their continued support, “For me88’s [200% Welcome Bonus] to stand out in such a competitive online entertainment market, it is all thanks to the support of the 300,000 active players on the platform. We believe that the word of mouth of our [200% Welcome Bonus] winners is not only a great opportunity for more new players to join, but also the strongest advantage to leverage our platform.”
