Danilo Suarez urges PCSO to expand STL operations

Nov 2, 2018 @ 17:43

Quezon 3rd District Representative Danilo Suarez called on the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) to allow the expansion of Small-Town Lottery in the country.

The Quezon politiko said doing so will not only allow the government to reap maximum economic benefits from STL but also help eliminate illegal gambling.

He also said this is the perfect opportunity for the PCSO to expand STL because President Rodrigo Duterte has strengthened the government’s campaign against illegal gambling.

“I continue to urge the PCSO to allow the expansion of the STL nationwide so that provinces may benefit from the program through additional employment and eradication of illegal numbers game,” Suarez said.

“I urge my fellow legislators to look into the potential of STL and support my call for its institutionalization. Numbers games are admittedly deeply ingrained in our society. What we can do therefore is to provide legal and regulated machinery that will protect the interest of the playing public,” he added.
