BANGUED, Abra — Jueteng bet collections in Abra reached P800,000 daily or a whooping P24 million monthly, a significant hike coinciding with the upcoming May 2013 polls.
From P500,000 daily bet collections, bets reportedly rose to as much as P800,000 a day.
“[Bet collections rose) especially in Bangued,” said a town mayor who refused to be named.
Bangued is Abra’s capital town and is densely populated.
The jueteng operator in the province is only known for his alias “Bonito”. – Artemio Dumlao
