The Thai authorities are closely monitoring all of the land and online casino betting activities related to this year’s World Cup. Several centers to track down and stop internet betting rings are set p in Bangkok and other area of the country.
Experts think that approximately one billion dollars from Thailand only will be spent on the World Cup betting. The figure is huge, especially if to take into consideration the fact that betting in Thailand results in one year prison sentence and fines. So far, a small number of bettors have been arrested and it looks as if the Thai government is losing the battle.
