Live games provider TVBET says it has completed an analysis of its most popular games among Asian players, with statistics collected in 1Q21 showing Keno, WheelBet and PokerBet topping the chart.
According to the analysis, 28% of all Asian players of TVBET games preferred to play Keno in the first quarter of 2021. Believed to have originated in China, this classic game with familiar rules has been adapted to the world of online streaming by TVBET.
The dealer greets the participants, 80 numbered balls are dropped into the lottery drum and get mixed. Twenty numbers are then randomly selected from the mixed lottery balls one by one and placed in the tubes of the game result.
A player can choose up to 10 numbers that he or she thinks will be drawn and place a bet. But this is not the only betting option in the game. Punters may also bet on the overall total, the total of the first five balls drawn, the first drawn ball, last ball drawn and whether the first or last ball drawn is odd or even.
Keno from TVBET runs around the clock in a live format 24/7 with each game lasting for around 150 seconds.
The second most popular game for Asian players in 1Q21 was WheelBet with 21% of all bettors on TVBET live games preferring this option. Simple, intuitive and fast-paced, this live game mixes the principles of the classic “wheel of fortune” with American roulette. The player’s goal is to stake a bet and predict which sector of the wheel will win. Additional outcomes are also available. After the wheel rotates, it stops and one sector with a certain number and color wins. This sector is then highlighted on the wheel.
TVBET recently upgraded WheelBet to speed the game up, reducing the duration of each game from three minutes to two minutes and removing breaks between games.
Poker is one of the most popular card games in the world, played by millions in its various forms. Asia is no exception. According to TVBET, 11% of all its players in Asia preferred to bet on PokerBet in the first quarter of 2021.
PokerBet is based on Texas Hold’em poker and entails five rounds (Bet, Preflop, Flop, Turn and River), during which bets are accepted on positions and combinations of hands.
Unlike the traditional Poker format, TVBET’s PokerBet has no player limit and several betting options are available. The aim of the game is to collect the strongest combination compared to others. At the same time, participants can bet on a win in one of six positions or on a winning hand combination.
Just like Keno and WheelBet, PokerBet seems to appeal to Asian players due to its simple rules and fast-paced action.
