International celebrity entrepreneur Maria Ozawa, in partnership with M88 Mansion, the number one gaming destination in Asia, officially sealed their partnership and launched Maria’s Room last April 22 at Okada Manila.

Maria’s Room is a dedicated online gaming portal designed exclusively for Ozawa by M88 Mansion. It offers exciting online casino games recommended by Ozawa herself from top gaming providers such as Pragmatic Play, Microgaming, Sexy Gaming, CQ9, and more.

Ozawa talked about the exciting partnership during a media launch entitled “One Night Only: Live in Manila.”

“I want to express how grateful I am for the continuous support, confidence, and trust I receive from one of Asia’s most recognizable and most established online casinos – M88 Mansion. It was my first time partnering with a gaming company, and I am truly thrilled with Maria’s Room as it presents my personality in a new light. It definitely mirrors my fun side,” Ozawa shared.

According to M88 Mansion Creative Director Carlos Lopez, Maria’s Room has displayed significant success since its soft launch in February and continues to grow in all the target markets of M88 Mansion in Southeast Asia.

Maria’s Room guarantees excellent and engaging games for players, including “Bikini Party” with sexy ladies playing beach volleyball, “Football Baby” where they can play soccer, and “Ladies Nite 2 Turn Wild”, a video slot where they can party the night away.

The platform also features exclusive videos and a photo gallery of Ozawa. Players can receive a shoutout from the Japanese model and film actress herself. These and more are what can be found inside Maria’s Room by logging on to https://m88.com/maria-ozawa.

M88 Mansion also introduced the Maria’s Room exclusive workout kits for its followers, which were inspired by Ozawa being a health and fitness enthusiast, as seen in her segment called “Monday Mornings with Maria” on Facebook and her YouTube channel.

During the Q&A, Maria said she had a pleasant experience while filming a movie in the country. “It is fun in the Philippines,” she quipped, adding that she is willing to do another film if there is an offer.


Veteran actress Boots Anson Roa-Rodrigo has endorsed the candidacy of Vice President Leni Robredo as she also revealed her realizations about Martial Law.

“Ngayong 2022, ang presidente ko ay si Leni Robredo. Boots Anson-Roa-Rodrigo po. Dating naniwala sa pangako ng disiplina at pagkakaisa, pero nakita at naranasan ang katotohanan,” Anson-Roa said in a video.

Anson-Roa, who ran for senator under the Koalisyon ng Nagkakaisang Pilipino (KNP) ticket of the late Fernando Poe Jr., also found fault in the regime of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos Sr. She debunked claims that the Philippines had its “golden years” during the Martial Law years under Marcos.

“Sabi ng lola mo, maganda ang panahon noon? Yung more than 20 years ng diktadurya? Naranasan ko lahat ‘yan,” she said.

Initially, Anson-Roa said she believed that discipline under a Martial Law rule would lead to a better Philippines.

“Pero nakita ko, with my own eyes ang pagbagsak ng ekonomiya. ‘Yung gutom at kawalan ng trabaho. Naranasan ko magkaroon ng mga kaibigan na bigla na lang nawala,” the actress said.

“Mga simpleng tao, ‘yung iba natagpuang patay, karamihan hindi na nakita,” she added.

She is hoping the current generation of Filipinos would never experience the horrors of Martial Law by fighting for the country and choosing Robredo as the country’s next president.

“Diyos ko, mga apo. Sana hindi niyo maranasan. Sana hindi na natin maranasan muli.  Nobody recovers from that pain. Take it from me, mga apo. Hindi natin golden years yon,” Boots added.

Aside from Boots, several celebrities recently expressed support for VP Leni, including Vice Ganda, Nadine Lustre, Kathryn Bernardo, Maricel Soriano, Liza Soberano, and John Arcilla.
