The new 'Aerial Warfare' game is one of the slots that the company hopes can drive growth

Asia Gaming is backing slots to become the biggest segment in the Asian online casino market due to their popularity among younger players.

The software and systems developer this week announced the release of two new slots titles, ‘Aerial Warfare’ and ‘Jurassic’, and has big plans to expand its portfolio of 49 games in the next 12 months.

While it offers a mix of games from Live Dealer Classic Baccarat to card games, which are available in HTML5 and Flash, Asia Gaming chief executive Sky told that slots are a major focus.

“Slot games is the casino segment with the highest growth rate in the Asian market,” Sky said. “Asia Gaming experiences a double digit growth in this section month by month, which is huge.

"Right now, slot games may generate lower revenues than Live Casino, but it is just a matter of time before it is just as profitable. It may not surpass Live Casino in the coming one or two years, but the younger generations are looking for faster games and that is where slot games fit in perfectly."

Asia Gaming wants to become the leading software brand for Asian players in their own continent, Europe and other regions of the world, and 2016 could be a big year as it looks forward to exhibiting at ICE 2016 in February and the release of 25 new games.

“Asia Gaming is one of the largest companies in the Asian Region so we have the resources to deliver many high quality games,” Sky added.

"As of now, the slot game portfolio of Asia Gaming is not that large, only about 50 games. However, with adding third-party providers to the platform and, on top of that, developing 25 games in-house next year, Asia Gaming will rapidly become one of the larger slot game providers in the market."

While slots are considered to be the biggest driver of future success, Asia Gaming remains committed to other types of games.

Sky said: "It is not only slot games that are being developed, it is also RNG table games and other games such as scratch cards.

"It is very important to give the players a wide variety of casino games in order to keep them playing games from Asia Gaming.

"For table games we will use the experience and knowledge we have in order to recreate as much of a Live Casino game into an RNG table game. So all the different roadmaps you see in Live Casino, you will also see in the RNG table games."
