Pagcor refutes plagiarism claim, probes ‘fake news’


THE Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (Pagcor) decried the recent circulation of screenshots on social media maliciously accusing Pagcor of plagiarizing the logo of a website called “Tripper”.

The allegation made against Pagcor is entirely false and driven by malicious intent. Throughout its operations, Pagcor has consistently upheld the highest standards of integrity, transparency, and accountability, said the state gaming agency in a statement. The agency said it “remains dedicated to fostering a safe and thriving gaming industry in the country.”

Nonetheless, Pagcor said it is actively investigating the “source of this malicious and baseless campaign and urges the public to exercise caution. At the outset, the website is lacking showing of credibility and in fact, bears resemblance to a phishing site.”

It urged everyone to be vigilant and to obtain information from credible sources to combat the spread of false narratives and protect themselves from potential scams.

Pagcor said it “remains dedicated to responsible gaming, regulation of the Philippine gaming industry and nation building.”
