Pagcor, one of the Philippines’ largest gaming corporations, has teamed up with Spanish beer brand San Miguel to serve free beer at their Internet casino stations (ICS).

The company operates a nationwide chain of gaming outlets with a minimum of 10 personal computer terminals dedicated solely to playing eCasinoFilipino games accessible 24 hours a day.

The range of eCasinoFilipino games offered inside the ICSs include Baccarat Blackjack which bring in 56.8 percent and 30.5 percent of the total gross bet turnover, respectively, followed by 7 percent for Poker games and 3.3 percent for slot-machine games.

Pagcor started with a humble 11 ICS stations in 2004, and the number more than tripled by year-end of 2005.

A key factor in the boom in the Philippines’ online casino industry is the 3 percent increase in the commission rate offered to Pagcor’s the operators from 22 percent to 25 percent of gross winnings in mid 2005, spurring more operators to take on ICS machines.
