Bongbong Marcos Jr.

For months we have been following the Presidential election with updates on how to bet on Philippine politics, and today is the day that the people will decide. 

It comes as no surprise that Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. is leading the odds as his campaign has gained momentum over the last few months. A big part of his success is accredited to the younger Filipino generation who did not live through his father’s rule. 

BoingBoing used Tiktok, a popular video streaming service, to push his agenda and help catapult him to the top by connecting with Filipino youth. In one of his more popular videos on the service, he is seen talking about how the Philippines were safer under martial law, and when he was a kid, he could keep his doors unlocked.

May 9th Poll Predictions

Most polls predict that Marcos Jr. will win the Philippine Presidency and return his family to power after 35 years since his father was ousted. In April, one poll showed he had a 33% lead over his closest contender, current Vice President Leni Robredo. 

While some people claim that Marcos Jr. is spreading lies and running an elaborate disinformation campaign, the presidential candidate has adamantly denied those claims. 

Is It Legal To Bet On The Next PH President?

Betting on PH sports, entertainment, and politics is 100% legal in the Philippines when bettors use the approved tools of the trade. For domestic events, PH gambling laws only allow bets to be placed online with a sportsbook operating outside the country. 

For other sports and politics, such as the US presidential election, PH residents have more options, including domestic land-based sports betting services such as MegaSportsWorld and the numerous other domestic sports gambling locations.
