This article will discuss how to play Jueteng, this game was exist almost 300 years in Philippines, hoping to win for small amount of betting. Many of bettors were poor and they depend for lucky numbers want to bet, some people dreamed a numbers that they believe that was comes out. When I was child (early 1990’s) I remembered my grandmother bet in Jueteng that composed of 4 categories namely as; “MABUENAS”, “MALIGAYA”, “MAPALAD”, and “MASUERTE” all of these means “LUCKY”, until such time the routine of game modes change.

When I research for Jueteng the game modes suddenly change I don’t know what the reason and I study very well of this particular games, during researching some people could not explain clear such they have fear and public illegal,

The games have number ranges from 1 to 37. Now, they called as “CASA” the mother game which the two numbers, this is one type of game mode (“CASA” means one type of the house) if you bet CASA game mode only two numbers allowed. Example: 12 and 36, you can bet in number 12 for any amount that’s called “Tumbok” and in number 36 for “Sahod” see sample of betting.

As you can see same as CASAS much easier than CASA if the Betting is too long, same numbers (12,36,09) , same total Bet prize (P18.00), if you use the 4 picks to 6 picks just add the “tumbok” and “sahod” then multiply in number of combination , sample : P5.00 plus P1.00 = P6.00 times 6 (4 picks is equal to 6 combinations) the result is P24.00.

This is the basic Jueteng games, there are plenty of games enjoyed like , “CALOT” , “BATIBAT” , “Pompyang Batibat” , “HIGHWAY”, “BARILAN”, “BULABULATE” , “BAO” and many other terms.

This game in the Philippines was institutional that we can say life time hobby because some people hoping for graces and spending money for this battle of illegal numbers. So I hope you enjoy reading of this article.
