Duterte lifts suspension of lotto operations

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, July 30) — President Rodrigo Duterte lifted the suspension on lotto operations, his spokesperson said Tuesday,

Presidential Spokesperson Sal Panelo in a statement said lotto operations are less prone to corruption as these are machine operated.

Maraming Pilipino ang umaasa sa lotto [Many Filipinos depend on lotto],” he said.

The order takes effect immediately, Panelo added.

“As per the advice of Executive Secretary Salvador C. Medialdea, the suspension of lotto operations has been ordered lifted by the President,” Presidential Spokesperson Sal Panelo said in a statement.

Panelo said machine-operated lotto games are less prone to corruption compared to other gaming activities licensed or franchised by the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office.

Maraming taong umaasa sa lotto [Many people depend on lotto],” he said.

The order takes effect immediately, Panelo added.
