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 more than 60 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 those we currently consider the most likely new entrants next year. Although we did rank these five people 51 through 55, we’ve listed them in alphabetical order. You’ll just have to guess who came in at number 51 as, to borrow a poker term, the unlucky “bubble boy”.
