This market research report presents a detailed segmentation of the casino gaming market in the Philippines by end user (mass, slot machines, and VIP customers) and by type of games (blackjack, craps, poker, roulette, and slot machines). The leading vendors in this market are Philippines Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR), Resorts World Manila (RWM), City of Dreams Manila (CODM), and Solaire (BLOOM).

Overview of the casino gaming market in the Philippines

Market research analysts at Technavio expect the casino gaming market in the Philippines to grow at a CAGR of around 10% by 2020. The recent boost in revenue through the VIP customer segment is one of the major drivers that will impel the prospects for growth in this market. In this region, the addition of more VIP tables will lead to the growth of the market. Consequently, most junket operators from Macau have started their business in the region, which will, in turn, accelerate the flow of income from this gaming segment. The revenue contribution from the VIP segment in the Philippines will increase during the forecast period as they are making efforts to match the luxuries provided by the casinos in Australia at a lower price.

One of the major trends in the Philippines casino gaming market is the integration of the casino market with the hospitality sector. In this region, casinos are trying to integrate their businesses with major luxury hotels as they are seen as a source of luxurious entertainment for people with high disposable income and time. Numerous restaurants and bars in the country have slot machines which attract customers; thus, adding more value to the place. Due to this strategy, the reach of the games increased by a huge margin.
