Lately Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation announced that the gaming authority which oversees the sector is planning to give the permission to eGaming operators to manage live dealer table games and have their live dealer studio approved to introduce the tables as a new addition.
This would alter the operation of many e-cafes located across the country and potentially increase their revenue figures. Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation which oversees the gambling industry issued a news statement in which it stated that the process of accreditation for live dealer studios is set to commence.
Therefore all the gambling venues that want to add live casino to their floor and introduce table games with live dealers are now free to file in their applications with PAGCOR (Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation).
PAGCOR stated that the license in question goes by the name of Permit to Possess and it is designed to utilize the work of providers of studio gaming setup which facilitates the gambling activities. Even though the gambling memorandum which is going to bring a change to the field was first issued in March 2018, only now the gaming authority is publicly announcing it on its website.
According to the information the board of directors of the gambling regulator managed to reach mutual agreement regarding the eGames operators’ right to provide their customers with live dealer casino games. With the help of the said memorandum, the process of approval of live dealer studio or production facility is expected to become easier for technology providers which might be interested in offering such.
Each provider will have to pay as much as PHP250,000 (US$4,792) in the form of the so-called accreditation fee and this is going to guarantee them 12 months of permission to operate. In order to reserve twelve more months once the period is over, the provider will have to pay the same amount of money. As for the Permit to Possess itself, its value amounts to PHP1 million.
It is also valid over the span of the following year after the acquisition, while the renewal fee amounts to PHP1 million as well. The said land casinos are the only places in which Philippines residents have the right to participate in online gambling activities.
You can find land casinos like the Casino Filipino branches spread through the country in order to reach a larger number of gaming punters. Throughout their operation, the said venues have been known for their limited number of offerings, e-bingo being one of the most preferred ones. The new offerings are expected to draw more customers to them.
