Betting On Olympic-Style Games Online

When it comes to betting on Philippine sports and Olympic-style games, the best option for many Filipinos is online sportsbooks. Online sportsbooks offer odds on everything from table tennis to international basketball, football, and everything in between. 

Legal online sports betting sites are permitted under current PH gambling laws if the betting site is located offshore and not based in the Philippines. While there are current Philippine Offshore Gambling Operators (POGO), these licenses only allow Philippine sites to offer their services to other countries, not PH residents.
