Daily Asia Gaming eBrief: PAGCOR Chairman doesn’t want police powers

Good Morning. No need for “more teeth”. That’s what PAGCOR’s Chairman says about suggestions that the regulator should have police powers in order to go after bad actors in the offshore gaming space. Alejandro Tengco says the increase would only distract from its licensing and regulatory roles.

PAGCOR Chairman doesn’t want police powers

The head of the Philippines’ gaming regulator says that he doesn’t want the authority to have police powers, saying it could dilute its effectiveness in handing out licenses and overseeing licensees. Alejandro Tengco lauds efforts so far in taking down illegal operators but notes that an outright ban on offshore gaming won’t eliminate criminal activity by foreign actors, in particular those who are being sought by Chinese authorities.
