Microgaming Software to Power Philippines Facing Online Casino for PhilWeb

Online Gambling in the Philippines & PhilWeb

The Philippines is no stranger to online gambling. Neither are they a stranger to the controversy that often surrounds online gambling. Legally regulated in the Philippines, internet betting here has come a long way since the Philippines Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) was authorized to operate the sole online casino for internet wagering Filipino’s.

After being nearly shut down by the then-current Philippines President in 2001 (who was later impeached the same year), the Filipino online gambling industry bounced back by giving PhilWeb Corporation “control” of online casinos doing business in the Southeast Asian Pacific. Opening the door for competition, PhilWeb now works with PAGCOR to regulate and tax online casinos based in the Philippines. And while the laws are strict here, the potential for business is huge for any operator lucky enough to get in the door with PhilWeb.

That said, it should be no surprise that the online casino software developer, Microgaming, has struck a deal with PhilWeb to provide games for a new online casino (apparently still in development) by the name of Vibrant Vegas. Complementing PhilWeb’s current lineup of “at-home” play and internet cafe online wagering games, Vibrant Vegas Casino will provide the best that Microgaming has to offer. In case you need a refresher, that’s over 450 graphically-intense online casino games and outstanding front/backend software controls.

Regarding the deal with Microgaming, PhilWeb’s CEO, Dennis Valdes, couldn’t have said it better: “Our gaming operations are currently going from strength to strength and we are delighted to be delivering a new casino platform to market. We are currently undergoing rapid growth, and Microgaming is the obvious partner for us, due to its ability to deliver the highest quality tailored software at an unrivalled speed to market.  We firmly believe that no other provider comes close when it comes to games content.”.

Microgaming is no doubt equally pleased to be teaming up with PhilWeb, not to mention gaining a foothold in the Philippines online gambling market.
