Australians, New Zealander arrested for online gambling in Thailand

    Thai police have reportedly arrested six Australians and one New Zealander for an illegal sports betting operation on the island of Pattaya. The authorities used an undercover informant to place bets on Australian horse races, which were broadcast over the Internet onto large-screen televisions. The alleged operator told police he had been running the operation for a long time and had accepted bets and paid out according to the website rate.
