New! A Blue-Chip Analysis of Gambling Trends in Today's China

NEWTON, MA--(Marketwire - December 13, 2007) - The Chinese Gambler Report, authored by Global Betting and Gaming Consultants out of the U.K., has just become available in North America through Casino City Press.

The Chinese Gambler Report is a unique, groundbreaking, in-depth report on the burgeoning Chinese gaming market. It focuses not just on Mainland China but also looks at the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau as well as Taiwan. In a nation that, with the possible exception of the Australians, most experts agree has the most awesomely prolific gamblers in the world, the regulated gambling industry is only just starting to come into its own.

Looking ahead, the authors of this exhaustive report make the case that the Chinese Government's will to legalize, regulate and tax the gambling industry, coupled with the possible use of technology -- in particular China's 400 million mobile phones -- and the mind-boggling expansion of Macau, means that Chinese gamblers might well be spending as much as US $34 billion in just five years time.

The Chinese Gambler analyzes all aspects of the industry in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, including:

--  Historical Background
--  Regional Competition
--  Market Forecasts
--  Doing Business in China
--  Key Participants in the Chinese, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan Markets
--  Chinese Regional Lottery Sales/Key Economic Data 2002-2006
--  Key Demographic, Economic and Social Data

The authors of the report, Global Betting and Gaming Consultants (GBGC -, are recognized as the most credible specialist international gambling consultancy in the world. The company has worked with or supplied information to over 300 clients, the majority of whom are "blue chip."
