Where was Neil born and raised?

Neil was born on March 15, 1983, and was raised in the Philippines. He is Filipino by nationality, and his ethnicity is Asian. Neil is a Pisces as per his zodiac sign. He was born to his father, Mauro Arce, and his mother, Jeaniejlo. Unfortunately, Joe has not disclosed the name of his siblings.

Neil’s family is very popular and is known for producing the best ice cream in the Philippines. The business started when his grandfather Ramon Acre and his wife pasteurized Carabao milk and traded with neighbors under the name “Seleta.”

However, RFM acquired the Seleta Ice Cream Company in 1990. As a result, the ice cream recipe was changed to milk instead of Carabao’s milk. His grandfather Ramon’s youngest son, Mauro Arce, revitalized the family business and original ice cream recipes with the new brand “Arce Dairy” in 1995. Thus, Neil’s nickname “Dirty Ice-Cream” in poker serves his fame and family business background.

Regarding his education, Neal studied at De La Salle Santiago Zobel and completed his school and high school education. He later joined Taft University of De La Salle University in Manila, Philippines, and completed his studies there with a Master’s degree in Business Administration.


How did Neil start his Career?

Although Neil Arce comes from the family behind the famous local ice cream brand Arce Dairy, he first wanted to establish his position in the poker world. He was a prominent figure in the 2000 Asian Poker Championships, winning millions of pesos in various Asian tournaments.

Contrary to what one might think, Neil funded his poker career alone. Not his family. In an interview with the Philippine edition of Esquire magazine in 2012, Neal admitted that his parents were actually indifferent to the fact that their son started playing poker. According to Neal, no one understood what it meant to be a poker player at the time. His family thought he was a corrupt gambler and was full of negative emotions about it.

Neil used his income as a banker to support his passion and became a founding member of The Metro Club (the largest poker room in the Philippines and Asia), which paved the way for his career as a poker player.

His most significant victory came in 2009 when the 25-year-old child prodigy defeated 262 players from 40 countries on the Asian Poker Tour held at the Dusit Thani Hotel in Makati City. This game saved him nearly 9 million pesos ($ 185,000) and became the pinnacle of his poker career.

Neil later admitted that a poker player’s life had become a lonely journey. He had to participate in a certain number of poker tournaments in Macau every year, which he was afraid of. As a result, he could not spend time with friends and family; only he traveled.

Since 2013, Neil has had the joy and satisfaction of making movies. He is considered the producer of Robin Padilla’s action thriller “10,000 Hours”, the hilarious movie about the power of a girl “Camp Savi,” the producer of “Last Night” with Piolo-Toni and the producer of “Not a Love Story” Modern love story “Sid & Aya” and fantasy comedy Sarah G “Miss Granny.”

The film “10,000 Hours“, which was directed and produced by Neil, earned the Winner of the Festival prize, and it was again nominated for the FAMAS Award in 2014. Besides, he is not far from winning the producer award.

Neil Arce also has a youtube channel along with his wife where he posts vlogs about his family, house tour, and many more.
