Calvin Lim, DFNN CEO, said: “The positive result of our revenue comparing the second quarters of 2020 and 2021 showing a 104 per cent increase, is due to the success of InPlay.ph.

DFNN Inc received the first online casino licence in the Philippines last year through its interactive entertainment unit, which already had a PAGCOR licence to provide services to internet cafes in the country.

Online casino licences in the Philippines are regulated by a new system called PIGO (Philippine Inland Gaming Operator).

In May, PAGCOR allowed Solaire Resort and Casino and Resorts World Manila to launch online gaming products. The regulator had previously given Okada Manila permission to launch an online product.
