Gambling with their health as well as money: 108 Thais arrested at Hi-Lo casino near Bangkok

Residents concerned about the potential spread of Covid-19 contacted the Department of Provincial Administration to tell them there was a gambling den in their soi. 

 

Fifty officers led by Ranarong Thipsiri went to investigate in Soi Phibul Songkhram 32 in Suan Yai, Muang, Nonthaburi, north west of the capital Bangkok. 

 

Arrested were 108 gamblers, reported Sanook.

 

And there was more than 200,000 baht on the tables. 

 

Thaivisa notes that gambling dens operate relatively openly all over Thailand. 

 

But since the Covid-19 pandemic started to grip there are more reports about locals reporting the operations of the dens as they fear the spread of the coronavirus among closely packed patrons.

Thailand's rife with gambling. I've seen friends of the family with phones out on gambling sites, lists of sports matches and odds, and doing bank transfers. I've been to nightclubs showing sports matches streaming from pirate sites, with advertisements for said gambling sites running along the bottom. I know of one province with some abandoned looking factories, you drive up at night, say the magic words or something, then get to see Vegas inside. Woo-hoo!

108 gamblers and 200,000 on tables, well unless they had 100's of 1000's more in their pockets, that is not such a big deal.

But money isn't the issue here, it is their rank stupidity and selfishness.

They should be locked up in the <deleted>t ie st of military quarantines available for the duration.

Well done, the locals. Yet another insight into the selfish behaviour of a large percentage of Thais who couldn't give a dime about the consequences of infection for them and others they mix with. 

yes indeed, but remember they are gamblers (addicted ones possibly) who like to gamble - even with their own lives! I wonder what the odds are??

But if you play your cards right you might avoid quarantine ...or is that too gambling ?

Unfortunately gambling with others' lives as well. As they will go out and spend winnings or return home to family as losers. Either way they are all spreaders. 200k/108 gamblers=these are not hi-rollers both financially or intellectualy.
