Casino busted: It was blatantly operating near major store - shuttle from Pattaya brought gamblers


Recommended Posts

Either they forgot someone on the pay roll or in fact, someone better connected takes over the business. This amount of money the BiB's won't let go.

You do not open and operate a casino without getting approval...this is more likely a high level official takeover of the gambling business...from a less powerful corrupt "businessman"...

maybe mr red bull had a hand or two in it...he obviously will never be bothered with such silly notions as law

As I have said on many previous occasions, the sign of things to come if gambling was made legal in Thailand for foreigners. like in Cambodia, Laos and Burma. All controlled by the CHINESE!!!

The local police were not involved in the bust apart from that - Thaivisa notes that gambling often takes place in connivance with local police turning a blind eye. 

 

It would not be surprising if transfers followed in this case as the inquiry is expanded.

12 million a day I'd surmise they were paid off handsomely to look the other way... hence not being involved or notified of the raid !!

That fact probably also explains why none of the gamblers or the staff running the casino managed to escape from the raid -- which is what usually seems to happen when the local police are involved for some strange reason....

Casinos and gambling operations exist all over Thailand with their location known to almost everyone. This one was operating in the shadow of Tesco Lotus Maptaphut branch in Muang district Rayong. 

 

I was going to say, for a country where gambling except for the official lottery is SUPPOSEDLY illegal, Thailand sure seems to have A LOT of gambling going on...  And let's not even start talking about organized cock fighting bouts...

Why isn't the National Lottery not gambling?  Poor people all over the country spending their last baht on lottery tickets hoping against tremendous odds that they will someday win big.
