While the Resorts World shooting incident has cast a negative light on casinos, it cannot be denied that the gaming industry in the Philippines is experiencing a boom. It’s a business that’s worth Ph188 billion in gross gaming revenue as of 2016 figures, and projected to reach PhP297.35 billion by 2018. At the center of the action is Entertainment City, an enclave of upscale hotels and casinos located in Pasay City.
