State gaming regulator Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) today announced that final judging for its photography contest for this year, which attracted 5,407 entries, has been concluded and that the winners will be made public on September 13.
“We are proud to announce that this year’s photography contest has been a tremendous success and that the 24 winners will be announced on September 13 at the National Museum of Natural History in Manila,” according to PAGCOR Chairman and CEO Alejandro Tengco.
Mr. Tengco said that the photo contest, which was divided into the conventional digital camera and mobile camera categories, required that entries feature hidden or untapped tourist destinations around the country as part of PAGCOR’s thrust to promote tourism.
“And we are pleasantly surprised to discover that, indeed, the Philippines has a lot more to offer than our traditional and popular destinations, and we believe that a lot of people would also like to fully explore these places that are featured in the contest,” Mr. Tengco said.
The PAGCOR chief said more than 13,000 people expressed interest in joining the contest when it was first announced online last February 15. Out of the initial number, a total of 8,771 people registered to join while 5,407 entries were actually submitted.
All the entries were initially judged by region, with five finalists from each category selected during the judging for Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao and Metro Manila. The overall winners were selected from the 40 regional finalists.
The 12 winners in the conventional photo category will receive Php80,000 in cash prizes each while the 12 winners in the mobile category will take home Php35,000 each. The non-winning finalists will also receive consolation prizes.
Among the judges in the final judging are prominent professional photographers like Mr. Bobot Go, Ms Lauren Malcampo, and Mr. Wig Tysmans along with columnist and editor Mr. Pepper Teehankee.

Get back to basics and win big in latest ‘Powered by OneTouch’ title Mo Mo Moolah
Mo Mo Moolah, the latest ‘Powered by OneTouch’ release, serves up a classic casino experience with innovative modern features and huge win potential.
A one line game set across three reels, Mo Mo Moolah evokes a sense of nostalgia where simplicity reigns supreme, combining traditional elements with features such as rewarding respins and multipliers.
Players choose to play with one, two or three reels with all columns activated offering bigger prizes of up to 10,500x the bet.
A Respin feature can be triggered when two or more reels are active if either a 0 or 00 land, regardless of a winning or non-winning spin.
When all reels are in play, landing the Cash Stack symbol on the third column triggers a special Moolah Respin feature. This sees it lock in place while the first two reels will respin. If a Cash Stacks tile appear on both reels, the It’s Raining Moolah round will be triggered.
One of seven different valued coins are available on reel one whilst the subsequent two contain multipliers of up to 10x. The second reel will multiply the coin win on the first reel, whilst the third reel will multiply the new value for potentially massive 2,000x wins.
Madis Raus, Head of OneTouch, said: “The latest ‘Powered by OneTouch’ release, Mo Mo Moolah, embodies the perfect blend of classic charm with some added modern twists to keep things fresh.
“We invite players to enjoy the nostalgia of a traditional stepper game while spinning for thrilling wins in this captivating slot experience.”
Gaming Corps’ sizzling Super Hot Stacks slot brings Free Spins and Bonus Guarantees
Gaming Corps is bringing back the beloved classic fruit theme with the launch of new slot game Super Hot Stacks.
Super Hot Stacks is a five-reel video slot with three symbols per reel and 15 paylines. The game gives players the chance to watch their wins multiply as the reels stack up with juicy fruits and exciting multiplier values.
The Super Hot Stacks feature can be triggered on any spin. When a symbol lands in every symbol position on a single reel, the multiplier increases by +1. This multiplier then applies to any winning combinations on that spin. The maximum multiplier in the main game is six, but can go up to 25 in the Free Spins feature where the multiplier is sticky!
The action-packed Free Spins feature will be awarded when players land three Scatter symbols; players will receive seven Free Spins and this can be re-triggered up to fifty Free Spins. If the player obtains less than 10x their total bet in the Free Spins feature, the Bonus Guarantee will be triggered, awarding additional Free Spins to continue the action.
Gaming Corps continues to cement its position as an up-and-coming games developer with this latest slot release, following a plethora of game launches this year, with successful titles such as Raging Zeus Mines, Wild Woof, Prospector’s Plinko and Luke E. Chance and the Book of Luck.
Connor Blinman, Head of Games at Gaming Corps said: “The Gaming Corps development team have been hard at work of late focusing on several game releases, and we are delighted Super Hot Stacks is now ready for players to enjoy. It is a pleasure for us to take a classic theme that players love and put our own spin on it.
“This has been a momentous year for Gaming Corps already as we continue to grow as a developer, creating diverse content remains at the forefront of our strategy, and there are more releases in the pipeline which will give players even more memorable experiences.”
