Tackling vices one by one, Philippines president targets online gaming | Reuters

MANILA/HONG KONG After unleashing a crackdown on drugs, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is turning his guns on a booming online gaming industry, abruptly scrapping one firm's 13-year monopoly this week and denouncing its billionaire chief as a corrupt oligarch. Until recently, Filipinos could gamble in licensed online cafes, as well as casinos, but Duterte refused to renew the exclusive license of the operator of more than 300 such cafes, Philweb Corp, after its permit expired on Wednesday. "With the strong and repeated pronouncement of the president, there is no choice," Andrea Domingo, head of Pagcor, the state regulator of casinos and online gambling, told Reuters. #United States #Middle East #markets #United Kingdom #Gaming
