Hole In the Wall

The Bugle has been wanting to highlight some of the new or unusual businesses sprouting up in the Barrio Barretto area. Here is one that you can walk past again and again and never dream what is going on inside. It is a legitimate on-line casino run by PAGCOR (Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation) Inside it is dark, cool and orderly. It resembles an upscale internet cafe. There are forty plus computers and on the day we visited there were three patrons at 9 AM. Each computer has a multitude of popular games. Some are western in nature and others distinctly Chinese. The poker games run through both cultures. To play you deposit money with the cashier and she credits your computer. The amount accumulates or diminishes depending on your luck and skill. The minimum is a P500 startup. E-Games is located on National highway near the Rizal St. talipapa area.
