Atong Ang gets 25-year franchise of E-Sabong

 The House of Representative grant Atong Ang 25-years franchise of its  online cockfighting firm or "e-sabong". Lucky 8 Star Quest Inc., operator of the popular Pitmasters Live games got 161-2 votes to approve on third and final reading.

House Bill No. 10199 allows the e-sabong firm to construct, establish, operate and maintain on cocpit and off-cockpit betting stations.

Lawmakers cited the benefits to be derived from the e-sabong operations, particularly the potential generation of revenue. 

HB 10199 was approved on second reading just four session days earlier or last Sept. 13.

However, former speaker and Taguig-Pateros Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano opposed the bill, saying that e-sabong and other forms of gambling “destroy the moral fiber of our society.”

He said “e-sabong” is accessible via the internet or through mobile phones and could now reach a greater majority of Filipino households, including minors.
