Thai Cyber Crime Division Breaks Up Extensive Online Gambling Network Worth Over 1.3 Billion Baht


On November 6th, 2023, Thai Cyber Crime Investigation (CCI) officers held a press conference on extensive online gambling websites and captured masterminds in Pathum Thani, Prachinburi, and Chanthaburi. Their annual financial income was reportedly 1.3 billion baht.

According to the police report, the CCI officers conducted an investigation on three online gambling websites: Meslot789, Winnerslot555, and Major168. The alleged online gambling websites provided football bets, slots, and other gambling games for users and conveniently had automatic deposit-withdrawal systems via Thai banks and websites.
The CCI officers gathered all the evidence and requested search warrants and arrest warrants from the Thai courts.

As a result, there were 27 alleged suspects involved in online gambling identified as owners, employees, and mule accounts. The property in dispute was worth over 38 million baht and more than 1.3 billion baht for the annual financial income from 3 websites. Moreover, there were 30 other websites linked to the three main websites.

The CCI pledged to conduct further investigations to hold involved individuals accountable for their crimes including online influencers who promote online gambling.
