E–bingo operators told to seek LGU nod
by PIO release

An official of the Philippine Amusement Gaming Corporation said electronic bingo operators are now required to secure a resolution or certification of no objection from local government units in the renewal of their licenses to operate pursuant to the revised guidelines promulgated by the Board of Directors last year.

Pagcor Licensing Department Senior Manager Marvic P. Baas said e-bingo operators are now required to present a resolution or certification of no objection when renewing their licenses to operate such outlets within the jurisdiction of local governments to make sure that the LGUs want their operations.

In the city, the license of the e-bingo outlet at SM City Baguio has expired on Jan. 15 and one of the requirements awaited from the operator is the resolution or certification of no objection from the city government. The license of the e-bingo outlet along Marcos Highway, meanwhile, will expire on May 8.

The license of the e-bingo at the Baguio Center Mall will expire in March 2018 while the newly approved e-bingo outlet within the Maharlika Livelihood Center under RCC Global Entertainment will pass through the one year provisional franchise before it will be issued a two-year license with the required resolution or certification of no objection from the city government.

Baas informed the city council that the failure of the e-bingo operators to secure the resolution or certification of no objection from the LGU will force the State gaming corporation to close their operation.

Under the newly crafted guidelines for the operation of traditional and e-bingo outlets, such outlets must be located at least 300 meters away from churches, places of worship, and schools. Malls, arcades, and government commercial buildings are exempted from the limitation.

The city council invited Pagcor officials to shed light on the updated guidelines for the grant of licenses to interested e-bingo and traditional bingo outlets and to guide members on the actions to take on gambling outlets in different parts of the city.

Baas said previously, Pagcor requires e-bingo and traditional bingo outlets to secure the resolution or certificate of no objection from the LGUs hosting their operations during the initial stages of their application and allow LGUs to retract their support.
