Although casino gambling has been illegal within Japan, Matsui Gaming Machine has established itself globally as a significant player in the gaming equipment market with products such as gaming tables and casino chips.
As Shigeki Machida, managing director of Matsui Asia, recently explained in an exclusive interview with AGB Nippon, “In Asia we are particularly strong in places like Cambodia and Vietnam. In Macau we are not so big, but we do supply to all of the properties. In Europe we are also very strong.”
Machida calls particular attention to the firm’s casino chips, which he says offer “high quality at a reasonable price, with unique security functions.”
Matsui Gaming Machines’ head office is in Tokyo, but there are four subsidiaries based in cities such as Seoul, Macau, Manchester, and Las Vegas.
The company has long supported efforts to legalize the IR industry in Japan. “We are very much looking forward to the day that we can supply our products to our homeland,” Machida observes. (AGB Nippon)
