MANILA – Willie Revillame revealed that his contract with GMA-7 prohibits him to gamble in casinos.

In an interview with GMA-7’s news magazine program “Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho” aired last Sunday, Revillema admitted that he did go to casinos for leisure.

But contrary to reports that he spent almost two years of his break from television spending his fortunes in casinos, Willie said he only went there for leisure.

“Nagka-casino? Yes, tatanggapin kong totoo ‘yan. Naglibang lang ako sa buhay ko. Pinakiramdaman ko lang kung ano meron kasi hindi ako sanay d’yan e.”

(Was I going to casino? Yes. I accept that it is true. I go there for leisure. I tried how it feels because I’m not used to that feeling.)

“So okay, na-challenge ako. Nagsugal ako. Pero part ng buhay ng tao ‘yan. Pero hindi ako magpapaubos sa casino,” Willie added.

(I was challenged. I played. But that’s part of every person’s life. But I did not waste all my money in casinos.)

He then revealed that one of the reasons why stopped gambling is that his current contract with GMA-7 prohibits him to do so.

“Pero tinigilan ko na ‘yan. Kasi, una, bawal na sa aking gawin ‘yan. Kasi with my contract with GMA, hindi na pwede,” he said.

(But I already stopped because I’m  not allowed to do it anymore. In my contract with GMA, I’m no longer allowed to do it.)

Willie’s new program with the channel, “Wowowin” is set to air later this month.
