Bay City Ventures Head Becomes First Japanese To Win Individual G2E Asia AwardReading Time: 2 minutes

 

The final winners of the prestigious G2E Asia Awards were announced on May 21st, with the award ceremony and gala dinner held in The Parisian Macao attended by over 370 industry professionals. In what could become a recurring event as the Japan IR industry develops and grows, Tokyo-based Bay City Ventures’ Joji Kokuryo won the G2E Asia “BEST INDUSTRY RISING STARS” award, marking the first time a Japanese individual has received such an honor in one of Asia’s premium gaming award events. The company noted that the award recognized Kokuryo’s volunteerism in the promotion of innovation in the gaming industry, as well as his efforts and leadership in preparing his home country for a successful IR industry.

“This is an amazing honor. I owe everything to the colleagues I have worked with, the customers who demand the best, regulators who kept me on my toes, and everyone who helped me learn and excel in the industry. I must give a special thanks to my friends at Aruze Gaming, who first gave me the opportunity in this industry to take on bigger challenges,” said Kokuryo.

Other recipients of awards on the evening include gaming operators such as Galaxy Entertainment, Melco Resorts, MGM China, Wynn Palace, and Solaire, as well as gaming supplier giants Aristocrat and Scientific Games. Japanese gaming suppliers such as Aruze Gaming, Konami, and Angel Playing Cards have in the past been recognized in Asia for their products.

Kokuryo adds that “it is humbling to see the BC Ventures name on such a prominent list of winners. This recognition further strengthens our sense of responsibility to continue supporting Japanese individuals, entities, local communities, and eventually regulators to be successful in the global gaming industry. “

The Japan gaming industry, while still in it’s early stages, will be up and running by the middle of the 2020’s. While international support will be key, locals will certainly play a large role in shaping the newest major gaming industry. Bay City Ventures aims to be a major player in developing human resources and promoting the smooth development and regulation of Japanese integrated resorts.

Two of the Nation’s Top Sportsbooks to Debut in Colorado

Twin River Worldwide Holdings, Inc. today announced separate market access partnerships with DraftKings Inc. and FanDuel Group, giving sports fans in Colorado access to award-winning sportsbook products.

These partnerships combine Twin River Worldwide Holdings’ nationwide experience in gaming and casino operations with market-leading sports betting expertise and globally recognizable brands. Colorado is the fifth state in the United States where the FanDuel Sportsbook platform will be available and is the sixth state to offer the DraftKings’ Sportsbook platform.

As announced last Friday, Twin River Worldwide Holdings completed the acquisition of Golden Gates, Golden Gulch and Mardi Gras casinos in Black Hawk, Colorado. With the completion of this acquisition, Twin River also acquired the right to three sports gaming licenses in Colorado, leading to the creation of these two partnerships. Twin River will retain the third license for its own future use.

“Obtaining the right to three sports gaming licenses in Colorado will expand our footprint in the state well beyond our Arapahoe Park racetrack and off-track betting network,” said George Papanier, President and Chief Executive Officer of Twin River. “These newly-formed partnerships with DraftKings and FanDuel allow us to provide an unmatched sports betting experience to Colorado, not only with their mobile betting access, but also with an exciting DraftKings retail sportsbook location inside one of our newly acquired casinos.”

“Coast to coast, DraftKings is committed to providing states across the country with the ultimate experience in legal sports betting,” said Ezra Kucharz, DraftKings chief business officer. “Twin River is committed to providing exciting, real-time gaming opportunities, and we look forward to working alongside them to introduce Colorado sports fans to our award-winning product.”

“Twin River has been engaged in sports betting since the beginning in Rhode Island and Mississippi, and they are an ideal partner as we continue to enter states that open up online and mobile sports betting,” said Matt King, CEO, FanDuel Group. “Colorado has a sensible framework for sports betting, and we are excited to partner with a renowned gaming company like Twin River to bring our market-leading online sports betting experience to Colorado sports fans.”
