Indonesia Police to watch Internet Cafes for Illegal Sports BettingSports betting is illegal in Indonesia but that doesn’t stop fans from betting on their favorite sports. And with the World Cup currently taking place, many people will be placing bets. To try and keep a handle on things, the police force in Indonesia is going to be keeping a close eye on places that offer internet services such as cafes and clubs.
Police believe that these places are being used by sports bettors to place bets. The police chief Anom Wibowo of Surabaya commented that why else would people be going to cafes and clubs with their laptops. He doesn’t believe it is just to watch the game.
Though police are going to be watching places that offer a Wi-Fi connection, they will not be able to catch those that use the underground sports betting systems as easily. There are many bookies that will take bets in places that police cannot easily get to and they also use the internet to take bets from punters. Although police are going to be watching the places that offer internet connections there will still be ways for players to place their bets.
