Considering there are 5X the number of Chinese compared to Americans, VKIN is definitely worth a look.

Today’s announcement that Viking Investments Group took three months to study their decision to enter the online social gaming market in China likely means they sat around on their thumbs trying to figure out what would be a good story for a pump. “Hmmm, TAGG doing good, PZOO not so good, lets do gaming. Asians love games and the language barrier will eliminate anyone being able to uncover the real numbers.”
Actually, according to Niko Partners, a leader in Asian Games Market Intelligence, the revenue generated by browser-based games in China is expected to expand by over 40% this year alone. The 2011 mainland Chinese online games market size, including Social Networking Services games, was $7.0 billion, up 46% from 2010.
Considering they were basically looking to find companies in China to convert them into publicly listed ones in the United States, perhaps the three leads they had in January, a Beijing client operates over 100 retail stores selling women’s underwear, a Shanghai client, a restaurant and tea house company, which operates close to 130 stores in Shanghai and the Hunan province and a Zhejiang Province client in the apparel business which owns 3 clothing factories, several name brands and operates multiple retail stores in China all lead to the social gaming avenue.
