The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) confirms that Bloomberry's Solaire Casino is the only casino operator allowed to accept bets online
According to The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR), the only casino operator in the country that has been granted permission to accept bets online is Bloomberry’s Solaire Resort & Casino.
City of Dreams Manila and Okada Manila have already filed their applications to accept bets online, however, these are still being studied by PAGCOR’s concerned departments.
A recent report from Bloomberg said the three resorts had received the green light to accept bets online.
Nonetheless, PAGCOR said that Solaire Resort and Casino’s application has already been approved under strict conditions but its system will still undergo testing by the Gaming Licensing and Development Department.
PAGCOR revealed that Solaire is about to make a presentation on the processes of online wagering, whereas the respective applications of City of Dreams Manila and Okada still need to undergo evaluation.
The gaming regulator’s proposal to allow land-based casinos to accept bets online has been seen as a way to mitigate losses and refill the state’s exhausted funds caused by the economic impact of Covid-19.
