INTERPOL RAID OVER 4000 OVER ILLEGAL SOCCER GAMBLING

Interpol was reported to have arrested over 4000 people in well coordinated raids as they clamp down on illegal soccer gambling.

Interpol carries out the raid across eleven different countries during the Euro 2016 continental tournament in France. The latest global operation was mounted against illegal gambling and the operation in China, France, Malaysia, Singapore, Greece, Thailand, Vietnam, and Italy. The operation SOGA VI is the sixth investigation into football gambling by Interpol, the organization that facilitates cross-border policing, according to the Guardian.

SOGA is short for “soccer gambling” and has bedevilled the game and people for long, so the raid was to cut on the illicit operation. Another operation called Aces is well targeted at illicit betting websites and call centre operations in Cambodia, South Korea, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

China experiencing boom in soccer betting

With soccer continuing to develop in China, soccer betting is also experiencing a boom. More and more people are turning to online betting sites to gamble.


However, this has also given rise to illegal gambling online.

Illegal gambling in China is mostly done through messaging apps such as WeChat and Alibaba apps. Given that online gambling is illegal in China, it is very difficult to get accurate information from gamblers. They said that most of the gambles are done through the use of messaging apps and that the payments are distributed by money transfer services such as bank transfer, Alipay or WeChat.

OWEN GIVES SOCCER BETTING FANS HIS TIPS ON EUROPA LEAGUE FINAL

Newcastle legend Michael Owen shared his thoughts on the Europa League final before he flying out to Basel for BT Sports ahead of the final.


The retired footballer turned Pundit is also a BetVictor Ambassador.

The Reds have won all three UEFA Cup/Europa League finals they have played to date whilst their Spanish opposition in Wedneasday’s final are unbeaten on four of such finals so one of the sides will lose their proud record in Switzerland.

Jose Antonio Camacho believes that Vicente del Bosque should continue

Former Real Madrid star Jose Antonio Camacho believes that Vicente del Bosque should continue as the Spain manager even after the Euro 2016.

The World Cup winning coach is expected to announce his decision to step down from the job after the European championships next month. The 65-year-old has so far not made it clear what his future holds. The recent disappointment of the World Cup 2014 seems to be playing a lot in his mind. Despite going into the World Cup 2014 as the reigning champions, Spain suffered an embarrassing group stage exit.

Liverpool aiming for Top 6

Liverpool are looking to finish in the top six and the hopes of doing so will be boosted heavily by a win against Chelsea in the midweek action.

This is the penultimate game of the campaign for the Reds, who have just qualified for the Europa League final. Winning this game will give them access to the Champions League group stages next season, but the club want to make sure of a European qualification place even before the game. A run of seven victories in the last 11 matches has seen the club move closer towards the top six.

Euro 2016: Top Goalscorer Betting Preview

We’ve all got our opinions as to who will win Euro 2016: the patriots will be backing England, the romantics will tip Spain to complete a hat-trick of titles, the statisticians will be supporting France given that they have won their last two major tournaments on home soil, while the realists will be looking to Germany to take home yet another trophy.

That’s a debate in which all of the headline-making teams are available at short prices – and thus there’s not much appeal for the erstwhile punter. Instead, many will seek potentially profitable avenues elsewhere; one of which is the Top Goalscorer market.

Euro 2016: Frontrunners and darkhorses

With less than a month to go until the start of Euro 2016, preparations are well under way across the twenty-four nations who will all hope to achieve glory in France this summer.

The end of domestic league seasons across Europe have signalled the perfect time for national team managers to select a provisional squad containing players they believe have the quality to go all the way. A series of warm-up games could prove decisive in who makes the cut as a variable number of players are whittled down into a 23-man squad, with managers likely to give everyone a chance to impress and earn their place on the plane to Euro 2016.

Each day, more footballers from Zimbabwe are getting into betting

Football is a sport that is considered to be one of the most lucrative in the world with players earning huge salaries. Lionel Messi earns £336,000 every week and all the top performers in the world have similar earning.

However, taking into consideration that Messi is widely considered to be the best player in the world, it’s only appropriate that he has a salary at that same level. Shane Long is a lesser known figure who performs with Southampton and his salary is in the range of £50,000 which is significantly less in comparison to Messi and other renowned figures but his salary is still good enough for him to live an incredibly luxurious lifestyle.
