Lotto operations resume

A man waits by the public assistance desk of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) in Mandaluyong City on Wednesday, the same day that lotto operations resumed following President Rodrigo Duterte’s order to lift the agency's suspension. More than 21,000 lotto outlets and other PCSO gaming kiosks were shut down nationwide from July 27 to 30 after the President declared these as illegal due to "massive corruption," but Duterte lifted the suspension on lotto operations on Tuesday.
