Online Sports Betting Offenders In Vietnamese Court

Sixty three to stand trial in Dream Weavers case

The Supreme People's Procuracy in Vietnam has announced that 63 individuals arrested in the break up of a major online sports betting ring in northern Vietnam earlier this year are to stand trial soon.
Among them are To Cong Hung (34) director of Dream Weavers Online Services JSC based in Ho Chi Minh City, and five accomplices who have been accused of managing the illegal enterprise.
Prosecutors will lead evidence showing that the ring's website was operated from offshore servers and generated more than VND487 billion (US$21.8 million) wagered by gamblers in Vietnam between 2012 and 2015.
Bets were made on soccer, basketball and tennis games, the state will allege. There were also online poker games.
Hung is accused of sending around VND20 billion in bet money to various accounts at Chinese banks, and to have earned about VND4.3 billion from running the illegal services in Vietnam.

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
