South Korea Warns Internet Casino Operators
Apparently, online Togel gambling via the Internet is also HUGE in South Korea. On this story, police locate Chinese casino operators out of Hong Kong based servers.
The Pusan Metropolitan Police Agency said on Sunday they are searching for five people suspected of operating illegal international gambling Web sites.
According to the police, the suspects, who are living in China, opened two gambling Web sites using Hong Kong servers in April 2004. They collected more than 20,000 Korean members through advertisements using cell phone text messages and provided them with online gambling venues for poker and “go-stop,’’ the Korean card game.
The money involved totaled 13.5 billion won, the police said.
Gamblers sent cash to the operators’ bank accounts, who in turn provided them with game money, taking 8 percent of the cash as commission.
According to the police the five operators are members of the same family and were punished in 2001 for operating a gambling Web site in Korea. They then went to Shenzhen, China where they continued to run their illegal gambling business.
The police also charged 76 people who they say regularly logged onto the Web sites and gambled including a doctor, a company executive, a housewife, and a college student.
“They gambled on the sites for more than a month spending more than 2 million won each. Most of them were not aware that gambling on the Internet is subject to the country’s gambling laws,’’ a police officer said.
The police asked Interpol for help in arresting the operators as they are living overseas. full story
