Good Morning. The Philippine regulator is taking a proactive stance towards oversight of offshore operators (POGOs), placing them all under review as it aims to maintain the integrity of the market. The move, however, is not deterring the nation from moving forward with its online aspirations, as online gaming booms in the country. Also in the Philippines, the regulator is working on a review of all of its facilities within its self-run properties, as it prepares for the sell-off of the Casino Filipino venues.

PAGCOR puts all POGOs under review

Philippine gaming regulator PAGCOR has announced that it’s placing all Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators (POGOs) under review as it aims to maintain the integrity of the operations. The group notes that the move is to “weed out the unscrupulous companies“, amongst a spate of human trafficking and scam worries uncovered in recent raids on POGO operations. Calls in the nation for the total shutdown of POGOs continue, even as PAGCOR lauds the benefits of employment that the industry provides.
