Online poker in the Philippines

Master agents
When it comes to online gambling, the Philippines is a “gray area,” which comes with certain benefits to local players. One of them is easy access to all major poker websites allowed in the Philippines, from PokerStars, GGPoker and 888Poker to WPN and Chico. At the same time, none of the websites are licensed by any of the country’s four authorities: PAGCOR, PCSO, CEZA, or APECO. The lack of government in the Philippine gambling regulation is rather unusual, considering how popular our card game is in the Philippines. Apart from the local Filipino Poker Tour sponsored by PokerStars, the country’s capital, Manila, has seen quite a lot of other regional tournaments like the Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) and Asian Poker Tour (APT).
