Online gambling has been restricted and severely monitored in the United States and across several other countries too. Unrecognised international operators are not allowed to carry out online gambling operations in Singapore because unknown gambling servers are outlawed. Whereas, Brunei has completely outlawed online gambling both on domestic and international websites.
In Malaysia, it is illegal to host and operate an internet gambling operation. Recently, the Sarawak police raided an illegal online gambling outlet and the earnings per month from this outlet is mind-boggling. According to the Star, the Miri-based illegal gambling outlet earns the staggering amount of RM600,000 every month!
However, the people involved in the operation could not indulge in their luxury for long. The Sarawakian police arrested four suspects including a teenager during their sting.
“At about 10am, police raided a house in Taman Hui Sing and arrested four people aged 19 to 38. We also seized seven computers,” said State CID chief Senior Asst Comm Dennis Leong.
Upon further probing, the suspects had revealed that they have been operating the illegal online gambling platform for 6 months. The police are now investigating all transactions that were carried out via online and the brains behind this illegal activity have yet to be identified.
