FILIPINO athletes training for the 32nd Southeast Asian Games (SEAG) in Cambodia in May can now shift to high gear in their preparation for the biennial meet after the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) turned over on January 19, 2023 a total of P256.38 million in remittances to the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC).
Said amount represents PAGCOR’s mandated contributions to the government sports body for the months of November (P124.45 million) and December (P131.93 million) last year.
PAGCOR Chairman and CEO Alejandro Tengco personally handed the state-run gaming firm’s remittances to newly-appointed PSC Chairman Richard Bachmann in a simple turnover ceremony held at the PAGCOR Executive Office in Malate, Manila.
“With the amount that we remitted, we hope to contribute significantly to the training of our national athletes for various international competitions and to the further development of Philippine sports. Our future remittances will be bigger as our operations are slowly easing back to normalcy,” Tengco said.
Bachmann, on the other hand, expressed extreme gratitude to the state-run gaming firm for its latest remittances to the PSC, saying they would be very beneficial especially to the players representing the country in the Cambodia SEAG.
“This is definitely a big help to us as there are already a lot of requests coming from the NSAs (National Sports Associations) for equipment that they need for the training of their athletes for the coming SEA Games. Wala na tayong problema sa pondo pagdating dito,” Bachmann noted.
Besides remitting its mandated shares to PSC, PAGCOR also hands cash grants to athletes and coaches who win in international competitions under the National Athletes and Coaches Benefits and Incentives Act.
The agency played a vital role in the successful staging of the 30th SEAG in 2019 by donating P842.50 million to the PSC for the rehabilitation of major sports facilities utilized for the Games. Among these sports facilities were the Rizal Memorial Coliseum and Ninoy Aquino Stadium inside the historic Rizal Memorial Sports Complex in Malate, Manila and the Philsports Complex Multipurpose Arena in Pasig City.
The state-run gaming firm also made financial contribution to the Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee for the hosting of the biennial meet. #
smartclip, the adtech development unit of RTL Group, has announced the publication of its latest white paper — ‘Game On: Engaging the Ever-Growing Casual Gaming Audience with Rewarded Video Ads’. Featuring key insights into casual gaming advertising, with a specific focus on the high-performing rewarded video ad format, the paper is designed to enhance advertisers’ understanding of this expanding market and support them in reaching casual gaming’s diverse, leaned-in audience.
In recent years, gaming has evolved to become one of the world’s biggest forms of entertainment. And casual games — characterised by their simple, straightforward gameplay, easy accessibility on mobile devices, and minimal time/skill requirement — have become an important segment of the gaming market, reaching a wide audience across all ages, genders, and education and income levels. But navigating this complex environment can be daunting for advertisers and agencies, so providing them with the knowledge and insight they need is vital in order to maximise their success.

Drawing on smartclip Europe’s extensive expertise, underpinned by exclusive real-world data, and contributions from industry executives, alongside facts and figures from the wider industry, this new paper delves into casual gaming from every angle — the games and the gamers, the ad formats and the KPIs, the outdated misconceptions, and the future opportunities. Alongside this valuable intelligence, the paper also explores how brands of all shapes and sizes can take their gaming advertising to the next level, looking at the potential for utilising familiar ad formats to create tailored, scalable campaigns with effective targeting, measurement and reporting solutions.
An in-depth study of rewarded video, an in-game video ad that offers a game-related boost after players have watched the full ad, also features. Emerging as an effective, accessible ad format to reach the casual gaming audience, rewarded video creates positive brand associations by offering an important value exchange, an advertising feature predicted to play an increasingly major role in successful campaigns as more immersive digital experiences evolve.

“We are seeing an increasing number of brands leveraging the potential of casual gaming advertising to reach a diverse, highly engaged audience,” said Shira Leffel, Executive Director Marketing & Product Education at smartclip. “Casual gaming advertising — particularly rewarded video — offers a powerful, brand-safe, and effective way to reach myriad target customers, delivering high viewability rates of 98% and high view-through rates averaging at 94%. Our aim with this new paper is to encourage a deeper understanding of gaming, gamers, and gaming advertising, and to ensure this vibrant, growing market is as accessible as possible for all advertisers.”
BETER, the industry’s leading provider of betting content and gaming solutions, has extended its esports portfolio by adding the Dota 2 tournaments. These tournaments will be conducted by international esports organizer ESportsBattle.
New tournaments will run for 11 days each, with five teams, each consisting of five 7000-8000 MMR members, waging into battle in a round-robin format with a single elimination final. Across the entire tournament series, there will be up to 120 best-of-three matches per month with each match having an average map duration of 60 minutes.
BETER will also provide live streaming, live data and odds for all Dota 2 matches. All the streams are narrated  by professional commentators.
Under its proprietary ESportsBattle brand, BETER provides more than 25,000 events each month across a full portfolio of popular disciplines such as efootball, ebasketball, ehockey, CS:GO and now Dota 2.
Evgeniy Bekker, BETER Esports General Manager, said:
“Dota 2 is one of the most prestigious and popular games with millions of fans around the world, which is why we chose it as the fifth discipline to be added to our ESportsBattle tournaments. Our team has decades of experience, and used best practice to successfully launch the new tournaments, and we are happy to showcase it at ICE London. Don’t miss a chance to visit our stand, as we have a huge range of  products in our esports portfolio to offer. This addition is the next step in our overall strategy for esports leadership.
ESportsBattle tournaments are operated based on, and comply with, the principles and rules of fair play, and we have implemented a robust policy surrounding this. Also, our team has the highest integrity control all over Tier-3 tournaments worldwide. That’s why all operators can be confident in the transparency of BETER’s events“.
All Dota 2 events are designed to meet the needs of next-gen players, and we look forward to seeing more brands roll-out our tournaments now that they include Dota 2“.
