The Philippines Amusement and Gaming Corp (PAGCOR) has confirmed that it is considering a proposal to allow online gambling in casinos.
The regulator said it has received requests from operators to allow online bets from known patrons in order to reduce the financial impact of pandemic-related restrictions.
PAGCOR said the departments involved are currently conducting studies on the proposals.
The regulator is already evaluating the legalisation of streaming sabong events in authorised arenas.
An industry source said the change was likely to be made soon but only for Philippine clients.
