Esports Technologies announced the launch of its consumer platform, Gogawi, in Japan. Gogawi is available in more than 140 jurisdictions, is an immersive betting destination offering top tournaments and games 24×7.
Japan is the birthplace of many influential video games and game developers, and has had an enormous impact on global gaming culture. The Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry is working with the private sector to promote its esports market, which is projected to grow from 6.1 billion yen (US$56.8 million) in 2019 to 15.3 billion yen (US$140.6 million) in 2023. The ministry’s goal is to generate 285 billion yen (US$2.6 billion) in economic benefits annually by 2025.
Aaron Speach, CEO, Esports Technologies, said, “With its long history and deep roots in both gaming and technology, Japan has potential as an esports wagering market. We believe Gogawi.com is an exciting and intuitive esports wagering platform built specifically with the next generation of bettors in mind, from improved payment options to new wagering products. We are eager to have the product live, and look forward to expanding our partnerships into the Japanese market.”
