PAGCOR regulates all games of chance and issues licenses to all gaming operations within the Philippine territory. Except for gaming operations of land-based casinos, E-Games Licensing Department (EGLD) is the regulatory arm of PAGCOR over the local gaming operations which offer Traditional Bingo Games, Electronic Bingo (E-Bingo) Games, Electronic (eCasino) Games, Sports Betting, Specialty Games, and E-Billiards – i.e., onsite operations of various PAGCOR-licensed gaming sites along with the online operation of their respective remote gaming platforms.

For purposes thereof, EGLD processes the application for accreditation of Gaming System Service Providers including the evaluation and approval/denial of all requests for approval of electronic gaming platforms or systems together with the games or contents to be deployed and offered at gaming sites. Specifically, a Service Provider’s electronic gaming platform and its games must be offered at the gaming site where its remote/online gaming operation shall be an adjunct service for its registered players.

Accordingly, EGLD processes the application for establishment and operation of on-site gaming sites. EGLD subsequently issues Gaming Licenses (GL) to qualified Applicants or Operators of gaming sites. EGLD issues GL for each of the following game offerings:

  1. Traditional Bingo Games;
  2. Electronic Bingo (E-Bingo) Games
  3. Electronic (eCasino) Games
  4. Sports Betting
  5. Specialty Games
  6. E-Billiards

The Gaming Sites operate through the combined efforts and expertise provided by the Operators, Gaming System Service Providers and Suppliers of gaming equipment and paraphernalia, as the case may be.
