The Philippine Badminton National Open is back after a three-year hiatus due to the global pandemic.
The 2023 tournament will begin Sunday, February 26th, at the Dragonsmash Badminton Center in Makati City. This year the tournament will include the national ranking system as the Philippines build-up to the 32nd Southeast Asian games.
There is P1,000,000 in prize money to be split by the winner of the men’s singles, women’s singles, men’s doubles, women’s doubles, and mixed doubles. The tournament will also showcase young up-and-coming badminton players as teams showcase their skills to obtain the grand prize for their competition.
2023 SEA Games
The 2023 Southeast Asian Games (SEA) will be the 32nd edition of the Olympic Style games. This year the games will be hosted in Cambodia and will take place from May 5th to the 17th. Eleven teams will compete in 608 events from 36 different sports.
The Philippines won 226 total medals in the 2021 SEA Games and placed fourth overall in the medal count.
Betting On PH Badminton and More
There are several options for legal sports betting in the Philippines, but the best options for most players are online. While domestic sportsbooks are legal and rampant throughout the major metropolitan areas, online sports betting sites offer more lines, bonuses, and banking options to anyone with a smartphone or home computer.
Philippine gambling laws do not outlaw online sports betting but restrict what domestic sportsbooks can offer. Domestic sites cannot offer betting lines on competitions in the country but can provide international sports betting options. Due to the restrictions, many players lean towards online betting options as they can bet on PBA games, PH boxing competitions, Badminton, eSports, etc.
Online Sports Betting Benefits
Online sports betting has many benefits over brick-and-mortar counterparts, but a few options stand out more than others.
The most significant benefit associated with online sportsbooks is convenience. Once you create an account, you can bet on almost any sport in minutes instead of visiting a domestic location.
Another selling point for online sports betting is the banking options accepted. Online sportsbooks allow players to bet with Bitcoin or other popular cryptocurrencies. Crypto betting is only allowed online. We have yet to find a domestic sportsbook that accepts digital currency.
Deposit and reload bonuses are also another perk to wagering online. While some domestic sportsbooks might offer a bonus, they are different from the rewards you will find online.
