About Us

The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation’s regulatory function is undertaken primarily by the Gaming Licensing and Development Department (GLDD).  This includes issuance of licenses or authority to operate casinos, traditional and electronic bingo parlors, electronic gaming outlets, sports betting kiosks and poker rooms to private entities.  GLDD sets regulations and guidelines for gaming operations and performs related tasks.

It is the responsibility of Compliance and Monitoring Department (CMED) to enforce the rules.


By 2022, PAGCOR as the prime mover will make the Philippines the top gaming and entertainment destination in the ASEAN region, generating revenues that fund nation-building programs.
