The Philippines gaming regulator has announced all licensed casino employees are now on the country’s national register of restricted gamblers, making it easier to prevent casino employees from gambling.

GGR Asia reports that he Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (Pagcor) made the announcement in a circular dated September 6 and said the change would be effective from September 10.

The Pagcor memorandum reminds all casino operators that the rules prohibit their employees from gambling in any gaming establishment in the country. An employee of a Philippine casino must hold a licence to work in the gaming industry.
