About the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board:

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board is tasked to oversee all aspects of the state’s casino industry, along with oversight of new gaming initiatives created through amendments to the Race Horse Development and Gaming Act recently approved by the signing of Act 42 of 2017.

The Commonwealth’s casino industry currently consists of 10 stand-alone and racetrack casinos in operation, along with the two smaller resort casinos.  These facilities collectively employ 17,000 people and annually generate approximately $1.4 billion in tax revenue from slot machine and table games play. The largest portion of that money is used for property tax reduction to all Pennsylvania homeowners.

Ganapati to Launch Manny Pacquiao Slot Game in SeptemberReading Time: 1 minute

 

Ganapati PLC is going to launch boxing legend Manny Pacquiao themed slot game in September. Proceeds from the game will go to the Manny Pacquiao Foundation, supporting children’s education in the Philippines.

The game’s focus on fighting represents the local communities’ fight for a brighter future, something that Pacquiao strives for in his role as a senator of the Philippines. Elected to the Philippine Senate in 2016, he was firmly established as a leading figure in politics.

“This opportunity is extremely exciting for us as it represents Ganapati’s considerable growth within the industry. We’re delighted to be involved in this project with the octuple champion Manny Pacquiao – a true global superstar. It is wonderful to know the extent to which Ganapati is now being recognised in the industry,” Juliet Adelstein, CEO of Ganapati Europe Holding and Ganapati Malta said.

“Manny Pacquiao has defeated countless powerful players in the past – no matter how strong his opponent, he always faces them head on and without fear. This mental strength of his can be seen not only in his role as a pro-boxer, but also as a politician and future leader of the Philippines. Manny Pacquiao is the most successful and respected athlete in Asia and an incredibly skilled and determined politician. It is an honour to be able to produce his official game,” Hayato Terai, CLO of Ganapati PLC and Ganapati Malta said.
