Gambling in the Philippines is generally restricted by government laws. Illegal forms of gambling include jueteng, masiao and last two.[1] There are no laws prohibiting online gambling in particular, therefore legal.[2]

The Philippine government owns Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation, a gaming company. Charity sweepstakes and lotteries are also managed by the government through the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office.[3]
