The Philippines has announced a crackdown on online poker, which will come into effect from Monday.
The move comes amid growing concern that people are turning to online poker to cheat.
It follows reports of an increase in fraud at online casinos, which is seen as a sign of broader problems in the Philippines’ online gambling market.
“Today, we will be implementing new regulations that will curb the activities of criminal elements and other criminal elements,” President Rodrigo Duterte said.
“This will help us fight against the illicit online gambling industry, which can be a source of economic and social disruption.”
The Philippines is one of the largest and fastest-growing online poker markets in the world, according to PokerStars.
The Philippines also boasts the world’s largest online poker market, and has seen a recent surge in the popularity of the game.
A report released by the Philippines government earlier this year found that online poker accounted for nearly 30% of the country’s total gambling revenues in 2016, a figure that is expected to grow by more than 40% by 2021.
