Latest Filipino gaming service just announced.
For the first time, Filipino players can play at a nationally official online casino from the comfort of their own home. The online technology firm, PhilWeb, and the state-owned Philippines Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) have just launched the nation's first online casino site, E-Games Online.
The new site is simply an online version of the games available in PAGCOR's e-Games cafes which are operated by PhilWeb and located around the country. PhilWeb is the Philippines' first and largest listed online technology firm.
e-Games Online offers Filipino players over 21 years old all the traditional casino games such as blackjack, baccarat, roulette and slots.
The site is supported by PhilWeb's easy and convenient payment platform. However, players also have the option of visiting cashiers in Metro Manila or wiring money through accredited banks or Click2Pay e-wallet. Additional payments methods will be added in the future such as load PINs, money transfers via online banking, and local credit cards.
