It said the increase was “mainly from bingo games, electronic games and the casino businesses.” Third-quarter EBITDA showed a growth of 602 per cent from last year’s loss of PHP111m to a positive PHP560m.

The company posted its net income of PHP172m for the three quarters that ended September 30, its first positive net income since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. It achieved a net profit of PHP429m, compared to a net loss of PHP107m in the previous year.
