Another Asian Casino for Starnet

11 June 1999
Starnet Licensees are penetrating the Asian online gaming market. Last week, the company's Antigua subsidiary, World Gaming, launched Joyluck Casino, a cyber casino completely translated in Chinese. This week, Omicron Technologies, a recently announced Starnet licensee, says it will launch a similar site.

Lucky Eight Casino, an online casino targeting Chinese speaking customers, is targeted to launch within four to six weeks

The company has been working closely with a "Feng Shui" consultant who has been assisting in the design and development of the website. The site will also be available in Japanese, Korean and five other languages and will be the first of many websites developed to target various market niches worldwide. Like Joyluck Casino, the new site is intended for use by Asian web browsers and operating systems.

Visitors will be able to download casino software which includes an authentic Pai Gow Poker and an additional 21 machine and table games. Java versions of blackjack, slots, video poker, and Caribbean Stud will also be available.
