Duterte tells Pagcor to stop issuing more casino licenses: Madami na sugarol!

 

President Rodrigo Duterte has ordered Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. (Pagcor) to stop issuing more casino licenses.

In a speech at Manila Hotel Thursday, Duterte said Pagcor has enough gamblers to sustain its revenues.

“I have this serious talk with Andrea. And at this time, we go slow in extending another area. Huwag na muna,” said Duterte.

“Ang gusto ko mag — When you have reached the mega status baka magdagdag tayo. But there’s enough gamblers to sustain you, you?re being millionaires. But if you are a mega-billionaire already, then we might — Ibig sabihin marami ng sugarol,” said Duterte.

Duterte said that while he has never played in a casino, he appreciated the billions brought in by casino operators to the country and assured them of his government’s full support.

“Hindi ako sugarol, nagtatrabaho lang ako. And let me know what I can do for you. I can give you the assurance, we welcome you. Pasalamat ako. I thank you for the income that we are earning from the gambling community,” said Duterte.
