Thailand law enforcement authorities busted a $3million per month illegal online gambling racket recently.
Casino gambling being illegal in Thailand, the police seized eight computers, 30 monitors, 27 mobile phones, seven bank account books and 17 ATM cards.
The operation was being run in three rooms of a building which ended up in getting 19 people (8 men and 11 women) arrested. The reports have stated that the online gambling website PGSLOT889.com was under investigation and that it could still lead to further unearthing of illegal networks.
