BACOLOD City Vice Mayor Greg Gasataya said Friday the Provincial Board has not officially received any information or communication regarding the plan of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) to Peryahan Games in the city.

Gasataya said online gaming and other operations that require the use of computers need to pass through the Provincial Board for the issuance of a Resolution of No Objection (Rono) like in previous instances involving the PCSO.

He said there is a procedure to be followed and these matters have to pass through a committee. The committee will then conduct an assessment and submit its decision to the Provincial Board.

Gasataya said the city has a Rono ordinance that requires this kind of operations to obtain a resolution from the Provincial Board.

The PCSO came up with the Peryahan Games after the supposed failure of the controversial Bingo Milyonaryo.

PCSO acting chairman and general manager Jose Ferdinand Rojas II had earlier informed Mayor Monico Puentevella in a letter about the PCSO’s plan to launch the “Peryahan” in Bacolod.

Rojas said that by virtue of the deed of authority dated April 2, PCSO approved the one-year experimental test-run of the Peryahan Games and authorized Globaltech Mobile Online Corporation (Globaltech) as the provider, distributor and system supplier of the said game.

In a letter dated November 4, Globaltech president Jose Gregorio Aguiling informed Puentevella that representatives from Globaltech will make formal presentation to him on the proposed Peryahan Games in the city.

Moreover, Rojas said that “in the conduct of the Peryahan Games, PCSO shall provide shares for the same gross sales allocated which will be two percent of the 30 percent charity fund based on the gross sales and receipts of the games within the province .”

Also “five percent of the 30 percent charity fund based on the gross sales receipts of the games within the city or municipality” will also be provided.

Its operation will open up job opportunities for the residents of the local government units, Rojas said.
