Best Casino Destinations in the Philippines



The Philippines are a hot gambling destination, not only in South East Asia but worldwide. The industry started its steep rise in the mid-'70s when the government legalized gambling. Nowadays, it is a fully regulated sector, and you can visit dozens of casinos in this country and enjoy luxury and glamour. Stay with us, as we will guide you to the top three destinations in the Philippines that gamblers love!


Manila
Manila, as the Philippines' capital, is the flagship of the casino industry in the country. However, besides that, it is a vibrant metropolis that offers different entertaining content. It is a must-see destination when you visit the Philippines. You can have a lot of action in the city, which is well-known for its museums, history, art, and nightlife. Tourists shouldn't miss going to Intramuros City, visiting the National Museum, taking a walk in the Rizal Park, or meeting the marine life in the Ocean Park. 

On the other hand, if you want to spin the reels and try out your luck, you'll have plenty of choices in Manila. Players have several luxury casino resorts at their disposal, and perhaps, the most famous one is the Solaire Casino & Resort. It is one of the largest gaming facilities in Manila and the country, equipped with more than 1,200 slot machines and featuring over 300 gaming tables. Players will be happy to hear that this casino is open 24/7.

We should mention another brick-and-mortar casino – Okada Manila Resort and Casino. It is a massive gambling facility with more than 3,000 slot machines available. Table games lovers can enjoy more than 500 editions. Players can try to hit some of the huge jackpots, and this casino is a real threat for all gamblers. However, if you prefer to play your favorite casino games online, try some of these legal and licensed sites.


Cebu City
If you are searching for another popular tourist destination in the Philippines, then head to Cebu City. It is the capital of Cebu province, and it is the oldest large settlement in the Philippines. The entire region has a huge historical heritage, and you can enjoy places that can take you back in time. You shouldn't miss the Basilica del Santo Nino, Fort San Pedro, or the Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral. Visitors can go to many history-inspired events like the Sinulog parade.

Cebu City is full of tourist attractions, so you shouldn't miss to check out Museo Sugbo or visit the Cebu Taoist Temple. For seeing all these places, you would need to spend a couple of days in the city. And you shouldn't plan your visit without a stay in the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel. While you are there, you can try out your luck in the Waterfront Casino, which is the biggest gambling facility in the region. 

Players can count on having the chance to play at more than 400 slot machines and more than 60 table games. Some of the games are pretty rewarding, as they have high RTP percentages and huge jackpots. Who knows, the Cebu City visit might reward you with some big winnings if you are lucky enough at the gaming table.


Angeles City
Like the two destinations we have already mentioned, Angeles City is a place with a rich history. You can enjoy many 19th-century buildings in this city located in Pampanga province. Tourists shouldn't miss the colonial Holy Rosary Church, while other attractions worth mentioning are the Pamintuan Mansion and Museo Ning Angeles. 

Besides the historical heritage, Angeles City is also famous for its nightlife. Therefore, you shouldn't be surprised to see a few casinos. Casino Filipino is perhaps the most popular one, and all kinds of players can enjoy a lot of fun. It boasts more than 30 table games and almost 300 slot machines. Players can also visit the Casino Filipino Mimosa and try out more than 450 slots and two dozens of gaming tables. 


Conclusion
The Philippines are an exciting country that has a lot to offer to its visitors. You can enjoy a lot of action, from art and history to lively nightlife. This beautiful country should be on your bucket list, and if you visit it, you shouldn't miss the chance to win huge jackpots in some of its famous casinos!

Lumina Homes, the affordable housing arm of Vista Land, joins the 1st International Housing Fiesta Filipinas (IHFF 1) of the National Real Estate Association (NREA) taking place today until September 24, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Most investors, homebuyers and developers are still missing physical real estate trade shows, but virtual events have been growing and evolving, that attendees are seeing them as more efficient as they save time from traveling, quicker interaction with exhibition representatives, quicker payment options, and of course, safer for everyone.

For the participants from the real estate business, meanwhile, the IHFF will allow them to attract not just prospective local buyers but also in the global market.

The three-day online event will be the largest Philippine trade show for real estate and related businesses to be conducted online, where clients can expect exhibits and presentations at a touch of a button.

Lumina Homes is not new in expertly showcasing its products and services online, and new customers can witness this during the IHFF. With just one click while inside the online trade show, interested Filipinos worldwide can interact live—video and audio—with Lumina Homes representatives who will assist in all their inquiries. 

Every Juan is invited to attend, while at the comfort of his own home and own desk. Experience the uniqueness of a new normal trade show—a more conducive atmosphere where you can choose Lumina’s various offerings, from house and lots to affordable condominiums—all sans the crowd and noise of a physical show.

IHFF and Lumina Homes invite everyone interested in buying or leasing houses, lots, condominiums, apartments; property investments, such as buy-to-rent, land banking, REITs; housing loans—mortgages, term loans, and alternative financing; contractors, from individual home finishing to project development; construction materials; and home fit out and furnishing fixtures, furnishings, supplies, and services.

To better serve the OFW visitors and expatriates, the event will also offer consular information and services.

Making the first-ever IHFF more massive are big names in the roster of speakers. This includes Secretary Eduardo Del Rosario of the Department of Human Settlements & Urban Development (DHSUD) and Sen. Francis Tolentino, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Urban Planning, Housing & Resettlements.

NACIONAL Opens New 5-Storey State-of-the-Art Center, Redefines Memorial Services for Filipino Families

“The new Nacional was designed to give the Filipino families of today a place where they can spend their final days with their departed loved ones in utmost comfort, convenience, and sophistication. We wanted to give them a unique space to celebrate the life of their dearly beloved while, at the same time, making new memories with relatives and friends. All told, the new Nacional Chapels and Crematory is really more about those who have been left behind even as it gives those who have passed on the fitting and dignified venue for the celebration of life.” ~Annette Estacion, Managing Director of Nacional Chapels and Crematory
Nacional Chapels and Crematory Room

Nacional, has been around since 1900 one of the pioneering names in the Philippines’ memorial services industry, has opened the doors to its new state-of-the-art building on its old location along Araneta Avenue in Quezon City. Along with it a change in name from Nacional Memorial Homes to Nacional Chapels and Crematory.

The multi-million peso center sets new industry standards and redefines memorial services with a contemporary aesthetic usually seen only in hotels and condominiums and rarely, if ever, in memorial homes. 

Nacional Chapels and Crematory Facade

The new Nacional Chapels and Crematory is five floors of warm and contemporary chic guaranteed to please modern sensibilities as well as classic tastes. It houses 15 well-appointed chapels with various designs and several sizes to suit different family preferences and to satisfy varying accommodation needs.  

Nacional Chapels and Crematory Customer Lounge

Nine of these chapels have family rooms with their own bedroom, dining area, and toilet and bath. Exuding a warm ambiance, these rooms provide families an extra space for rest and other important activities away from their guests.  

In the new Nacional, families who wish to be with their dearly departed every step of the way for a complete final journey together may do so in amply spaced viewing rooms for preparatory activities, cremation, and other services. 

For these important undertakings, the new Nacional has been fitted with modern technology through a suite of new state-of-the-art equipment that adhere to world-class standards and provide better, faster services. 

There are also cozy lounges with comfy sofas, chairs, and coffee tables in strategic areas in the building that provide guests and visitors more options to relax, remember, and cherish their memories with their loved ones.

Nacional Chapels and Crematory Lobby Area

And for those who may want to have meaningful silence in private, several non-denominational incense rooms are available for personal devotional activities. 

The Nacional redevelopment project is one of the biggest undertakings in the memorial services industry in the last ten years. It started in 2018 and took three years to complete.

“Careful planning and robust investment came into  achieving our goal of giving Filipino families a modern facility they can enjoy for their memorial needs without putting a strain on their financial resources.” ~Lia Enriquez, President of Rosehills Memorial Management Phils. Inc., which now manages Nacional Chapels and Crematory

Rosehills is the firm that has made The Heritage Park one of the premier memorial parks in the country. The new Nacional brings the same industry-best practices and top-quality services to more Filipinos at more reasonable prices. 

The full menu of services makes managing memorials as easy and worry-free, so families can focus on the truly important aspects of their final few days with their departed loved ones.

'Life Below Water' by Ganden Medved-Po launches book for the benefit of WWF

“I’m proud of this collaborative project with the WWF because it combines two of my passions in life: photography and the ocean. With the help of my mentor, Gutsy Tuason, we were able to capture beautiful images of our marine life in the Philippines. Through these photos, I hope people will have a better appreciation of our oceans and to learn to care for them more. The first time I started taking photos was probably on my parents’ old camera which they would use to document family celebrations and occasions. That was an old Panasonic camera.~Ganden Medved-Po, a 17-year old photographer of “Life Below Water”
'Life Below Water' by Ganden Medved-Po

I always wanted to live near the ocean ever since I step foot of the sand and felt the heat of the sun while I was walking down the beach. The waves calms my soul and makes me breathe so peacefully with serenity. 

The ocean covers about 70 percent of the Earth’s surface, serving as a home to diverse and breathtaking underwater gardens and marine wildlife. Truly, there is much to be discovered in the vast underwater world, and 17-year old photographer Ganden Medved-Po will give us a glimpse of its beauty as he unveils his “Life Below Water” ocean photography book. Ganden is the son of Christopher Po, chairman of Century Pacific Food, Inc. and Nanette Medved-Po, founder and chairperson of HOPE and Plastic Credit Exchange.

Ganden Medved-Po

A joint project with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) – Philippines, “Life Below Water” is a compilation of photos featuring scenic seascapes and surreal marine life. The photos in the book were taken between 2020 and 2021 by Ganden during the COVID-19 pandemic under the mentorship of world-renowned underwater photographer Scott “Gutsy” Tuason

'Life Below Water' by Ganden Medved-Po

All proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit the sustainable fisheries work of the World Wide Fund for Nature - Philippines.

Currently, his camera of choice is the Sony Rx100, which has been with him on all his adventures. 

Now a senior high school student in International School Manila, Ganden expresses his gratitude for his parents for encouraging him to pursue his love for photography and the ocean while advocating for the environment. Apart from being the team captain of the school’s swimming varsity team, he is also active in various organizations including the Photography Club Council where he organizes events and workshops, as well as the Ocean ActivISM council, advocating for ocean conservation and sustainability. In July 2021, he became a member of the WWF-Philippines National Youth Council.

OPPO and Kengo Kuma Weave a Symphony for Milan Design Week 2021

“When I design architecture, I’m interested in designing the rhythm and the tone rather than the silhouette, and contemporary music gives us many lessons about how to create new rhythms and tones in architecture. This pavilion is one of the explorations into the new rhythms and tones in architecture combining visual and acoustic experiences of the visitors.” ~Kengo Kuma, Creative Visionary
Bamboo (竹) Ring :||  Weaving a Symphony of Lightness and Form by OPPO x Kengo Kuma

The multi-sensory installation works to the theme “Creative Connections” The world's leading smart device manufacturer and innovator OPPO has partnered with Japanese architect Kengo Kuma to create Bamboo (竹) Ring :|| Weaving a Symphony of Lightness and Form. Fusing architecture with music, design innovation, technological prowess, and user experience to create a sense of time and space, and will be on display in Milan’s Cortile dei Bagni courtyard for the duration of Milan Design Week, until 19 September. This is OPPO’s second time participating in Milan Design Week, having previously collaborated with the Royal College of Art for the 2019 edition of the design festival.

This landmark project also marks the second time OPPO and Kengo Kuma have collaborated on a design piece together, first debuting their original Bamboo Ring exhibition at the 2019 London Design Festival. The first iteration of the Bamboo Ring installation explored the harmonious relationship between humans and nature through the envisioning of lightweight yet strong structures made with bamboo and carbon fiber. 

Bamboo (竹) Ring :||  Weaving a Symphony of Lightness and Form by OPPO x Kengo Kuma

This year, OPPO’s experiential installation pushes the original project further, using pioneering technology to engage all the senses through a series of orchestral scores composed by Japanese violinist Midori Komachi with Musicity. Taking inspiration from sounds found in O Relax, OPPO’s digital wellbeing application that offers comforting nature and city sounds from around the world, Midori composed various soundscapes based on the cycle of seasons, which moves through the structure along with the viewer. 

Bamboo (竹) Ring :||  Weaving a Symphony of Lightness and Form by OPPO x Kengo Kuma

The installation’s woven structure, crafted from rings of bamboo and carbon fiber, becomes an instrument as music travels through it via structural sound technologies originating from OPPO London Design Centre's research. Integrating various sound technologies like haptic motors, MEMS speaker strips, and exciters, the installation produces an immersive base and a range of higher frequencies which reverberate the bamboo to create an overall effect similar to a percussion instrument. 

“OPPO is a human-centric brand, and our focus is on innovating for the people. We are delighted to partner with Kengo Kuma again, an architect who is known for seamlessly integrating nature and culture. Together, we demonstrate how we can use technology and design to add value to our daily lives drawing on our philosophy principles of ‘Technology as an Art Form’ and our brand mission ‘Technology for Mankind, Being Kind to the World.’” ~Jintong Zhu, Head of OPPO London Design Centre

After Milan Design Week, OPPO will donate the Bamboo Ring installation to Arte Sella Park in Trentino, Italy, a contemporary art museum with outdoor exhibits made from natural materials and backdropped by the mountainous Sella Valley, where it will find its permanent home.
