QUEZON CITY, April 22 -- The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) operation of Small Town Lottery in Bohol is legal. 

The STL draws in Bohol are conducted three times daily, at 11 am, 4 pm and 9 pm, by PCSO’s Authorized Agency Corporation (AAC) PF3 Games and Entertainment Corporation, located in Taloto District, Tagbilaran City.

The PCSO appreciates the initiative and vigilance of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) in verifying the illegal numbers game in the Province and to the Regional Trial Court of Tagbilaran City Bohol which acted immediately to protect the STL. 

PCSO assures the gaming public that the 2016 Revised STL Implementing Rules and Regulations strictly prohibits in using PCSO games as front for illegal gambling activities. Thus, the charitable agency encourages everyone to report immediately to PCSO and law enforcement agencies like the PNP and NBI the conduct, presence or existence, of any illegal or unauthorized gambling activities or operations in their communities.

PCSO is one with other government offices in helping President Rodrigo Duterte in his fight against corruption and illegal gambling.  The Agency remains focused on the expansion of STL to generate Serbisyo, Trabaho and Laro to more Filipinos. (PCSO)
