United States Federal Enforcement authorities have once again struck – this time succeeding in busting a massive online sports betting operation in the state of Florida going under the code name Operation Gotham City.
Last week the enforcement authorities managed to arrest seven people who were then charged with several federal offences while they are still on the look out for five more individuals.
Meanwhile, the principal defendant in the bust has been identified by the Federal Agents as 52 year old Adam Green who is currently being held on a bond of $750,000. The Federal Agents have meanwhile refused to elaborate any further until they have managed to execute all the other arrest warrants.
The Federal Agents did, however, disclose that “sting” bets of $160,000 was included in the enforcement action that occurred across five different states and involved Central American investigations into money laundering which took place through numerous banks and suggests that there may be a Costa Rica connection.
The names of the other ring members who have so far been identified include 36 year old Erick Spinosa, 32 year old Emilio Colon, 24 year old Jordan Brown, 34 year old Sean Barnes, 42 year old Mark Ruggiero and 45 year old Rehan Kazi.
The Federal Agents revealed that the undercover sting investigations took place over a period of a year.
Meanwhile, the Florida state legislature’s Office of Program Policy & Government Analysis (OPPAGA) has announced that it will present its final review of online gambling regulation pros and cons to the state Senate Regulated Industries Committee on 9th January, 2014.
One of the leading South African casino operators, Sun International, acquired Powerbet Gaming, the owner and operator of Voltbet.com earlier this year for an amount of Rand 30 million ($3 m).
Sun International has now announced that it has re-branded the Voltbet.com site and has launched a new betting site, Sunbet.
Michael Farr, an executive at Sun International, has revealed that Sunbet will be marketed to South Africans and will assist in speeding up the group’s entry into online gambling. Farr added that the Sunbet betting site would put Sun International into a good position for the day when online gambling options are expanded beyond sports betting by the government in South Africa.
Speaking at the launch of the new betting site, Sunbet, in Johannesburg, South Africa, recently, Farr revealed that although the sports betting industry is presently in its infancy in South Africa, it seems that online gaming will be legalized in South Africa in due course and that they are of the opinion that this business will position them well for when this happens, in terms of track record as well as in understanding their guests’ online preferences.
At the present moment online gambling is still illegal in South Africa, with the exception of sports betting. South Africans will now have a chance to bet on non-sports competitive events such as the popular television reality show, Idols, with Sunbet.
There are currently 300 sports books and over 400 betting shops in South Africa. It is expected that there will be a tremendous increase in sports betting in the country when South Africans wager on the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
