The next five
In order to rank the 50 most powerful people in Asian gaming, the panel considered almost 100 candidates in 2020. 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 below in alphabetical order. You’ll just have to guess who came in at number 51!

Name Title Organization
ANDREA DOMINGO CHAIRMAN AND CEO PAGCOR
DHAMMIKA PERERA CHAIRMAN AND MANAGING DIRECTOR Vallibel One
ALBERT YEUNG CHAIRMAN Emperor Group
SONNY YEUNG EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AND CHAIRMAN Success Universe
YOO TAE-YEOL PRESIDENT AND CEO Grand Korea Leisure

Ones to watch
Aside from the 50 people that made our final list and the many others we considered, a handful stood out as particularly worthy of mention. These are the people whose star is on the rise, are in a company worth keeping an eye on or in some cases, like Kazuo Okada and James Packer, have very much remained in the news in recent months.
