The Royal Thai Police have busted a 360 million baht gambling ring in the city of Pattaya. Police raided a luxury condominium in Chonburi’s Banglamung district, targeting the operators of the Paris99th website, an illegal online gambling platform.

Thai authorities continue to crack down on gambling

Police told media that the operation has more than 200,000 registered customers and financial transactions totaling over 360 million baht.

The police cyber task force conducting the raid arrested four suspects caught in the act operating IT equipment related to the Paris99th website, a man and three women. Authorities also seized a large amount of equipment, including two laptops, four monitors, three smartphones and other gadgets, totaling 100,000 baht for investigation.

The suspects are now charged with collusion to encourage others to gamble or gamble on unlicensed electronic media and to promote gambling activities without proper authorization.

This is not the first time Pattaya has been the scene of a major crackdown on illegal online gambling. In June 2022, cyber police also arrested 11 suspects in connection with an illegal online gambling ring that generated over 100 million baht in revenue. The suspects in this case had used Facebook and YouTube ads to lure customers, which police soon noticed.

This latest crackdown is another example of the Thai authorities’ efforts to crack down on illegal online gambling activity in the country. The Department for Digital Economy and Society has reported that more than 1,500 people have been arrested for online fraud and gambling in 2022. The Cybercrime Control Committee released the statistics at its first meeting of the year.
