Founded in 2008, Laxino Technology Limited is the only company, founded and managed by Macanese people and staffed by a world-class team of Asians, that provides gaming solutions to the dynamic Asian gaming market
Macau is an international gaming center, and a popular destination for people from Asia and around the world who want to try their luck and skills in the former Portuguese colony’s many casinos. Laxino is a Macau-based technology company that is working to provide casinos there and all around the globe with top-notch gaming solutions.
The company was founded in 2008 by two local entrepreneurs, Laxino Chief Executive Officer Lam Iao and Chief Technology Officer Chi Lei. Their goal then was to establish a strong commercial base in Macau before expanding to other parts of Asia and the rest of the world.
“Our approach is to have a solid foundation here in Macau before we get involved in any type of upcoming projects elsewhere internationally.”
“We will be one of the partners in a joint venture for a cloud service in Macau. There are some other social network platforms that we’re building up.”
“Our strategy is first to capture this market and make sure we have the market presence here in Macau before we reach out to international locations such as Europe or our major battlegrounds in North America and Central and South America,” said Mr. Lam. “Our approach is to have a solid foundation here in Macau before we get involved in any type of upcoming projects elsewhere internationally.”Laxino
’s management plans to pry open new markets by offering potential clients innovative technology and multimedia entertainment that will make them more efficient and profitable, while providing exciting and engrossing gaming experiences to casino goers seeking the latest in gaming entertainment.
In addition to developing its own technology, the company distributes slot machines. The slots business has been very successful for them, generating revenue for the company to continue its development efforts and encouraging it to reach out to other parts of the world such as Las Vegas and Buenos Aires.
Focusing strongly on quality, the company makes sure its employees have a deep knowledge of gaming to ensure the best new technology. Laxino
is also looking to expand into other areas of development; especially education and government, to benefit people in the region and help underdeveloped countries and cities reach their full potential.
As the only gaming technology and software developer in Macau, Laxino
has been a pioneer in creating quality employment in the software development field, thus giving many Macanese people who studied abroad and acquired strong skills a place to come home to. Mr. Chi recalls how many people could not find a job in their area of expertise, “so they had to change to systems support, applications support, or even business. They had to give up what they learned and what they enjoyed. So what we are trying to do is provide a platform for these kinds of people.”
And consequently, the Laxino
platform is moving beyond gaming technology and teaming up with other companies. “We will be one of the partners in a joint venture for a a cloud service in Macau. There are some other social network platforms that we’re building up,” says Mr. Li, adding that Laxino is prototyping on top of various Microsoft products like Kinect and Surface 2.0.
