Philippines

Moderate
The Philippines is a yellow-level online gambling jurisdiction due to their atypical partial regulation.

The Philippines are a group of islands in the Asian Pacific. They're roughly 300 miles south of Taiwan and 300 miles north of Indonesia with the South China Sea to the west and the Pacific Ocean to the east.

Overview

Regulation for online gambling in the Philippines is extremely atypical. For the majority of the country, the state-owned corporation PAGCOR controls all of the online gambling. Players from his country are allowed to play at all PAGCOR land-based locations and online through PAGCOR-operated services. What's interesting about this setup is that it's illegal for other businesses to offer betting, but it's completely fine for players to enjoy offshore operators.

This creates a strange situation where players are actually given incentives to play with non-government-backed companies, and it seems like they didn't really think things completely through when creating this setup for their online gambling jurisdiction. This came to a head in 2012 when courts found that there were no laws keeping players from playing with foreign operators, and things could change in the near future as a result.

Licensing

There is no standardized licensing process like what you'll find in many other countries with regulated online gambling. Instead, everything is done through PAGCOR. It's actually illegal for other companies to run games in the Philippines, and this seems to be a part of their bid to protect their government-backed games. With that having been said, it's a situation that limits competition and gives players a limited number of options. Along these lines, this scenario creates plenty of incentives for players to stick to foreign-operated sites.

Player Protections

Players are protected to a high degree when they play with PAGCOR operations. This is necessary because the government wants to keep faith in the games that provide them with revenue. However, because of the way the system of incentives is set up in this country, plenty of people will decide to play with foreign operators instead. While there are no government protections for players who do this, most of the risk can be mitigated by sticking to sites that have favorable reputations. A long history of reliable pay outs is the single most important thing players should look for in a foreign operator if they're playing from the Philippines.
