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’ parlor. 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: Make sure you have these 5 elements covered: 1) Good products & platform; 2) Spectacular customer service; 3) Robust payment solutions; 4) Strong technical team; 5) Fantastic business relationships + Out of the world marketing implementations.
Eventus: In your opinion what are some of the opportunities in the Philippine Market?
