The Philippine peso (PHP), locally called "piso," is the currency of the Philippines, an archipelago country in Southeast Asia. It traces its history to the Spanish peso, which was brought to the Philippines by Spanish trading ships during the centuries that the country was a colony of Spain. Today, Philippine pesos are issued in banknotes and coins of varying denominations by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas.
In 2020, the PHP ranked among the strongest currencies in Asia. Several live casinos allow deposits or payments in Philippine pesos, enabling players who prefer to use the Philippine currency to test their luck at baccarat, roulette, craps, and other popular live casino games.
