    Default Philippines gaming regulator clarifies online gambling ban

    Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) chair Andrea Domingo confirmed that the "closure of all online gaming" order issued last week doesn’t apply to holders of the new Philippine Offshore Gaming Operator (POGO) licenses that PAGCOR began issuing earlier this month, and only unlicensed online gaming companies would be covered by President Duterte’s closure order.

    In addition, the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) has washed its hands of the granting of online gaming licenses as alleged by President Rodrigo Duterte, saying the agency never dealt with any form of gambling operation in its industrial zones.

    "May I be allowed to inform the President that online gaming or online gambling or any form of gambling operation is not registrable with PEZA and is not allowed by PEZA,” PEZA director general Charito Plaza said in a letter addressed to Duterte in response to the President’s speech on Thursday implying that Lam and his group were in cahoots with corrupt PEZA officials in locating their operations inside the economic zones.
