Available ‘online sabong’ websites for OFWs blocked


The general public is urged by the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) to report e-sabong websites used by Filipinos overseas. 

In a statement, PAGCOR said that they will investigate reports of some Filipinos overseas getting addicted to online and gambling and getting mired in debt. 

“Offshore betting, or bets coming from players abroad, even if from Filipinos, are not allowed in e-sabong,” the statement read. 

“To ensure that this standard is met, applicants for e-sabong operations are required to submit a certification from a gaming laboratory attesting that the gaming websites are not accessible outside the Philippines and that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses emanating from other countries are blocked or restricted from accessing such websites,” it added. 

“With the institution of these controls, PAGCOR is able to ensure that the interests and welfare of our OFWs and their families are upheld and protected,” it further added.
