IEST is committed to responsible gambling. Remote gambling is a legitimate form of entertainment that is experienced by millions of players worldwide. For most players remote gambling is an enjoyable experience, however, the reality must be accepted that a small percentage of players engaging in remote gambling might have a problem with gambling taking over their life and finances. Being a socially responsible company means taking caring of our players, means having a proactive approach about the problems that affect the community. This is why IEST has adopted and is fully committed to the strictest application and enforcement of the following policies:
IEST requires new players to go through a KYC process to verify that they are of lawful age in their respective jurisdiction and at least 21 years old and qualified as a remote gaming player. Should we have a suspicion of a false declaration or minors attempting to use our services we will further pursue reasonable measures to verify this. In this respect, if we have a suspicion to this extent, we reserve the right to suspend an account and request proof of identity and age from the player to verify compliance with this policy. We also ensure that our advertising, sponsorship and promotional activity are not targeted at minors or any non-qualified players. IEST does not allow anybody under the age of 21 or non-qualified players to use our services. This policy is in full compliance and exceeds the requirements of the rules and regulations of the remote gambling authority that oversees and licenses our operation; Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR), Philippines.
We pledge to do all we can but we need your help also to:
Use child protection software to block remote gambling sites from computers minors might have access to.
Do not leave the computer/mobile devices unattended when you are logged on to our site.
Do not leave the "Save Password" option enabled on any IEST login screen.
Create separate profiles for minors on computers/mobile devices so that when they log in they cannot access your information.
If you suspect someone under the age of 21 is registered with us as a player, please contact us immediately.
Compulsive gambling does not benefit IEST. We strive to have a safe, fun environment on our site. Compulsive gamblers are a problem for their families, friends and their lives, creating an unstable, unsafe environment. IEST is committed to detecting and reducing compulsive gambling. We have a system to track player's activities, and we are constantly working to design and enforce controls designed to limit gambling patterns that are out of control. While the majority of people do gamble within their means, for some, it can spiral out of control. We strive not only to identify compulsive gamblers, but also help them address their problem and prevent other players from becoming compulsive gamblers.
In order to help you keep control, we would like you to remember the following:
Gambling should be seen as entertainment, address it as if you are paying for entertainment so do not over pay for your entertainment.
Gambling should NOT be seen as a genuine way of making money.
Avoid chasing losses.
Only gamble what you can afford to lose.
Keep track of the time and amount of money you spend gambling.
If you need to take a break from gambling, please send an email at email@example.com or Visit PAGCOR website at https://pagcor.ph/regulatory

We work to raise the bar of integrity worldwide because we believe that operating at the highest standards benefits everyone.
We believe that we are only as good as our player’s perception of us. Therefore, the highest level of integrity is the only standard by which IEST can operate to have our players have that perception of us.
