PAGCOR’s regulatory role is essential to the vision of the country taking a place among the world’s top gaming jurisdictions. In principle, PAGCOR aims to:
a. Ensure a level playing field among industry proponents;
b. Maintain an orderly and predictable regulatory environment;
c. Enforce license terms and conditions;
d. Promote fairness and integrity in the conduct of games;
e. Provide an underlying platform for responsible gambling;
f. Disallow access to gaming venues by minors and financially vulnerable persons; and,
g. Prevent licensed gaming venues from being used for illegal activities.
In order to meet the abovementioned objectives, regulations and standards were developed to fit the Philippine setting.
