I personally believe there is a big future in online gaming, although you need to be very good in your market research, otherwise you will throw money out of the window, if you chose the wrong location.

You need some professional specific data collected for this venture, otherwise you have lost even before you open. It's no good going into business, with your eyes shut, and thinking well all business is risk.

Risk can and should be minimised, that will cost you, if you cannot do it yourself, and the money is probably well spent, providing the people doing the research know what they are doing.

By the way, I was hoping you would tell everyone who reads the thread, what Lan stands for, because there are in fact many people that don't have a clue, what you are talking about, you cannot, and should not assume people know, express yourself clearly in your post with full detail, and you may get some response, you should also look for singapore gaming forums, and discuss, your idea. Collect data, from those that can provide information.

There is a check list for business startups, find out what you need to do, and go by the book!
