South Cotabato taps text messaging in anti-gambling drive

[Via Mindanews]
Local officials and the police in South Cotabato (Philippines) have turned to text messaging in their bid to stop the reported rampant gambling activities in the province. Daisy Avance-Fuentes, the Governor of South Cotabato, appealed to residents to provide information about gambling financiers and protectors by sending cellular phone text messages to at least two local radio stations here.

We already have identified these financiers and protectors but we still need additional information that would help build a case against them,
she said. I’m sure you’ve never heard of the 'last two' game…well, the 'last two' was reportedly operating in all 10 towns and the lone city of the province. The game is played by drawing the last two digits of the winning number combination of a Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office’s sweepstakes draw.
