Duterte lifts ban on lotto

 

President Rodrigo Duterte has lifted the suspension of lotto operations, Malacañang said on Tuesday night.

“As per the advice of Executive Secretary Salvador C. Medialdea, the suspension of Lotto operations has been ordered lifted by the President,” Palace spokesman Salvador Panelo said in a statement.

But all other games operated by the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO), as well as the franchises, licenses or permits granted by the charity agency for small-town lottery, keno and Peryahan ng Bayan shall remain suspended “pending the investigation of illegal activities and corrupt practices related thereto until the Office of the President evaluates the results of said probe,” Panelo said.



“Franchise holders and operators of lotto outlets may now resume with their operations. The lifting of the suspension of lotto operations takes effect immediately,” he added.
