The next five
In order to rank the 50 most powerful people in Asian gaming, the panel considered many more than 50 people. We actually needed to look at the ranking of around 55 people to ensure we had the number 50 cut off in the right place. These five are the people knocking on the door of the Power 50, and the people we considered the most likely new entrants for 2018. Although we did rank these five people 51 through 55, we’ve listed them below in alphabetical order. You’ll just have to guess who we ranked number 51, the unlucky “bubble boy” (to borrow a poker term).
