State-run Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation will never again acknowledge new gambling club permit applications until the point when the Philippine clubhouse industry develops. The Philippine Daily Inquirer announced that PAGCOR has begun drafting an update that will detail a ban on new clubhouse tasks after Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte raised worries about the multiplication of the physical offices. PAGCOR seat Andrea Domingo said she got the president's order last January 11.
Be that as it may, we're simply handling now the applications we got before the President requested the ban. From that point forward, as of January 13, we've quit tolerating applications.

As indicated by Domingo, PAGCOR endorsed three licenses of administrators intending to fabricate gambling clubs on the island of Cebu. These licensees were Udenna Group's Emerald clubhouse, Millennium gambling club of the Hong Kong-based Asian Gaming Group, and the as of late endorsed Universal gambling club of the Gokongwei gathering.
