Eventus: Mr Too, how did you first get involved with the Gaming sector?
Mr Danny Too: I first got involved in the Gaming sector back in Year 2000, that was 22 years ago. I remembered waiting for 5 hours in order to get a shot to be interviewed for the post of Operations Executive in a local slots’ parlour. And needless to say, the rest is history.

Eventus: Mr Too, being a speaker on the panel at SPiCE Philippines 2022 what are you most looking forward to at the event?
Mr Danny Too: The Covid-19 pandemic has totally changed the gaming landscape. At the same time, it has also proven that face-to-face communications & interactions are so crucial in the gaming industry.

Eventus: In your opinion what are some of the opportunities in the Philippine Market?
Mr Danny Too: Philippines by itself is a country with more than 100 million population. The sheer number of people in this country is an opportunity by itself. In addition, Philippines can be considered as the sole country in Asia with a proper & regulated iGaming legal framework and the biggest advantage has over its peers is that the locals can participate in the gaming activities offered in this country.
