An unnumbered house in Sa Kaew’s Aranyaprathet district was the first to be searched after police learned gambling websites were being run from there.

In the house, police found 120 employees who ran the websites and learned each website had about 4,000 members and generated up to Bt30 million monthly.

As many as 15 websites with 60,000 to 70,000 members were being operated from this house, generating about Bt300 million per month. Hence, police believe a big syndicate may be behind this operation.

Two sites in Bangkok and one in Nakhon Ratchasima were also searched and police collected transaction records as evidence.

A businessman based in Aranyaprathet is believed to be behind the online gambling operation.
