Several high profile influencers and video game streamers have been promoting gambling in the Philippines. They do this either by social media post or video game streaming in which majority of their viewers are underage Filipinos.

I will compile this list and hold this people accountable for their ignorance.

Erika Mei Ilar or Aki - facebook.com/pg/Akiwxc



Tims Randrup - facebook.com/timsdotaofficial



Nico Nazario or Kiya Nic - facebook.com/kuyanicwxc



Yana Navarra or Yana Cosplay - facebook.com/yanabelle8 (In canada but audience are still mainly in Philippines)



Majority are promoting this UK based gambling site called PnxBet. Upon checking this company does not have license to operate in the Philippines and requires ages 18 and above.



Usually operators are required to have Cagayan Freeport and Online Gambling License (logo is not present on the website). Even if they have this license they are only allowed for tourist only and does not allow operators to accept wagers from Philippine citizens similar to how POGO operates.

Good info.
I don't know where the fault lies.

Here's a question though: during international eSports tournaments, there are some ingame 'events' where game publishers set up match 'predictions' and you get ingame items when you win. Some games need ingame currency so players can cast 'predictions', are these considered online gambling too?

What about the dota2lounge.com and gg.bet?

if age and opportunities allow you to play, then why not, I think this market is worth a try

Hi, thank you for your position, if you have really researched this problem and were able to come to the conclusion that it is actually the ignorance of these few influencers and video game streamers who are promoting gambling in the Philippines.
I think that these people have become hostage to the current negative situation, which is not entirely up to them. But if they have been doing it for a long time and promoting unlicensed gambling products in the markets, then there is no way to justify them anymore.
I know a little bit about the subject of gambling, as for me, it is one of my favorite pastimes with friends in big company or small, or even alone. I also similarly focus on proven Influencers and Twitch streamers. Lately, I have been confidently using the Leaflet Casino service where I can always read the latest review about top online casinos in Canada, since that is the market closest to me. I can make bold choices of online casinos as I am used to trusting the team of reviewers who present their research on this service, as they constantly work with dozens of indicators of casino sites. These reviews should definitely include information about licensing, and my experience is that there is no reason to distrust such things. So always make a wise choice of the source you plan to use for the future. ;)

You just waste your time searching for these influencers and making posts. It's the parents' job and responsibility to take care of their kids and control their activities and time spent on the Internet.

I completely agree that promoting gambling isn’t a noble idea. But I assume these influencers just get money for advertising, and they don’t care about the content or consequences. I had an issue with my younger son. He almost got addicted to a similar game I see in this thread. I tried to forbid him from playing it, but I knew he could find a place and time, and I wouldn’t know about it. So, I decided that the only way out was to redirect his passion. It should be related to games but not destructive ones.
