Where to Play Casino in Cebu
With Macau losing its appeal as the casino capital of the East, several Asian countries are rising above as the new favorite gambling destinations, countries like the Philippines which PhilStar reports being on the verge of a casino boom as the number of foreign high rollers continually increase. Although most of the nation’s gambling is concentrated in Manila where Resorts World, Solaire Resorts and Casino, and City of Dreams are attracting hordes of big spenders, there are lots of great casinos dispersed across the islands.
For those in Cebu that has a gambling itch that needs to be scratched, here is a guide to the gaming facilities in the city.
Casino Filipino Mactan in Waterfront Airport Hotel
The Philippines’ biggest gaming corporation PAGCOR currently operates two casinos in Cebu’s Waterfront properties in Mactan and in Cebu City. Players at Casino Filipino Mactan might be interested in applying for the Privilege Card that accumulates points for accommodations and dining. Table games include Pontoon (Spanish 21), Super 6, 8 high stakes Baccarat and several others.
The facility also has classics such as roulette, a game which InterCasino describes as one of the most iconic games on the floor with its unmistakable wheel and table layout.
Casino Filipino Cebu in Waterfront Hotel & Casino
Towards the city center is PAGCOR’s bigger Cebu establishment where gamblers have a wider selection of entertainment, like bingo and slot machines. Offering many additional casino games we all know and recognize, Casino Filipino also has a game called “Pula at Puti” that uses 3 ping pong balls falling through a funnel to determine the winning bets placed on either the red squares (49), the white squares (49), or the star symbols (2). If any of the ping pong balls land on the star symbols, bets on red and white are automatically forfeited.
Other than casino games, Casino Filipino Cebu also hosts a variety of events, with this month featuring Bingo Shower of Millions.
