Pagcor adds gaming workers to casino exclusion database

The Philippines gaming regulator has released a memorandum announcing that all gaming workers holding a “Gaming Employment License” (GEL) will be prohibited from playing in any gaming establishments in the Philippines.

To do this, the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp (PAGCOR) said that it has added the names of all GEL Holders into the National Database of Restricted Persons (NDRP), effective September 10, 2018.

The move from the Philippines gaming regulator is similar to moves made by the Macau government earlier this year, submitting a bill which will restrict casino workers from entering gaming venues when off-duty.

Those included in the entry ban are gaming table and machine operators, promoters, workers in cashier cages, security and cleaning staff, restaurant staff, and staff members that work in surveillance rooms.
