The Man Who Gambled Away An Accidental $360,000 COVID Relief Payment

A man in Japan has spent $360,000 of government money on online gambling. It is illegal in the country. The man should have spent the money in a brick and mortar casino. He should not have used the government's money for gambling, because he should be spending it on something else. He was gambling on overseas online casinos. If he was caught, he would be accused of a crime. His gambling was illegal. In Japan, the prosecution will look into the fact that he used online online casino gambling to establish a paper trail. This is the most definitive way to prove his guilt.   “Gambling is a famously amorphous thing in terms of actual prosecution.”
