Gambling In The Phillipines

The Philippines are known for having the most exciting night life in Asia. There are casinos located throughout the country. The minimum gaming age in most casinos is 21. Most of the casinos are located in hotels, although some are freestanding. One of the wonderful aspects of the Philippines is that it is not yet widely recognized as a gambling destination and therefore travelers can go there for less money. Although it is less expensive the food, attractions and scenery are amazing.

Manila is a center for tourism and city life. As a result, there are casinos located throughout the city. The Heritage Hotel Manila offers just about every accommodation a guest could desire. There is a bank in the hotel as well as a swimming pool, lounge, business center and there are several restaurants. Japanese, English and Filipino are spoken there and there are interpreters available as well. The Casino Filipino Heritage is open 24 hours and offers 438 slots and 58 table games.

The Casino Filipino Pavilion, also located in Manila, features American and Asian poker games. It is located inside the Holiday Inn Manila Pavilion Hotel. There is a dance floor for guests and there is also usually live entertainment. Ronquillo is a slot machine arcade that features 369 slots.

Fontana Leisure Parks & Casino allows visitors to stay in private villas rather than in hotel rooms. The latest addition to the resort is the casino. The 2,000 square meters of gaming fun is only 90 minutes from Manila. In addition to slots and 40 gaming tables, there are four VIP rooms and one Premium Player’s Pit, which is open exclusively to the most distinguished guests. The casino is one of few in the country that allows gaming with more than two currencies (the Pilipino peso, US dollars, Hong Kong, New Taiwan and Singapore dollars are accepted).

One of the more specialized ways to gamble in the Philippines is cock fighting. Although cock fighting was made illegal by the government it still goes on. Locals and travelers alike have the opportunity to bet on which cock will win the fight.
