Manila’s casinos have just reopened after a lengthy suspension. These integrated resorts rely heavily on VIP play to make money. With the lifting of the travel ban, casinos in Manila can now offer gaming action to foreign travelers. However, the Philippine government is still limiting the number of patrons who can play in its casinos.
Casinos in Manila are located in several locations around the city. Several of them are near airports. The Networld Hotel is located near Ninoy Aquino International Airport, which can be reached in 15 minutes by cab. This casino has many amenities to offer to its guests, including a Japanese restaurant, a cafe, a spa and sauna, and a deluxe lobby. It boasts state-of-the-art slot machines and hundreds of gaming tables.
The Casino Filipino Pavilion is one of the oldest casinos in Manila. It is situated in the former Holiday Inn Manila Pavilion. It is one of twenty casinos in Metro Manila. It offers free wi-fi throughout, and its rooms are luxurious. It has several restaurants on site and a large casino with approximately 1200 slot machines and 300 gaming tables.
Okada Manila is the largest casino resort in the Philippines. The casino is owned by Kazuo Okada, a Japanese businessman. He was ousted from the boards of Okada Manila and a Japanese company in 2017. There were accusations against him of misappropriating company funds, but a Philippine court cleared him of these accusations. Kazuo Oka had also asked the Philippine Supreme Court to invalidate the takeover of Okada Manila by Kazuo Okada and Antonio Cojuangco.
