11/22/2012 : NEW ASIAN ONLINE CASINO
 
Partnership develops new Asian-facing offering
 
Despite a recent clampdown on internet gambling by Malaysian authorities a new casino is advertising its online and mobile services in the region.
 
The casino at 9 Crown.com is apparently a partnership between 855bet, AFB88 and WinningFT, described as established gaming brands in Asia.
 
855Bet is thought to be owned by the terrestrial Crown Casino from the Poipet region in Cambodia and is powered by ASCBET, who says it is licenced by the Asian Sporting Club. It carries what it terms as the first online gaming licence from the Cambodia government.
 
AFB88 is a sportsbook carrying the RGA logo on its home page, however the website is sub-standard, slow loading and incomplete.
 
WinningFT is a professionally presented online sports betting site targeted at the Asia Pacific and European regions.  It is reportedly licenced by First Cagayan Leisure and Resort Corporation in the Philippines as well as Costa Rica.  It carries the EGBA, ESSA and eCOGRA logos on its home page.
