Russian Authorities Arrest 100 People in Illegal Gambling Crackdown

Russian Authorities Arrest 100 People in Illegal Gambling Crackdown

The Russian police have revealed an underground casino network in Moscow during a joint operation of several investigative offices. Following a long investigation and more than 80 searches of businesses and homes, authorities have detained 100 people, including the leader of the criminal organization, A. Bazhanov.

The news of the massive operation that uncovered one of the largest criminal syndicates in the Russian capital was announced Wednesday by the press service of ICR, an abbreviation for the Investigative Committee of Russia, which is the country’s anti-corruption agency. The investigation, however, was conducted in cooperation with the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the FSB, the Federal Security Service, which is the main successor agency to the former KGB.

With this large-scale operation, authorities revealed that the criminal organization has created a sophisticated network of 15 illegal casinos and gaming clubs in Moscow. They operated under the guise of legal bookmaker Panorama LLC since May 2016 and provided illegal gambling outside Panorama’s official premises. The betting company is working under several brand names, including GreenBet, UnionBet, and WinLine. Members of the criminal organization managed to conduct unsanctioned gambling operations using specialized equipment.

Investigators have cracked down on the activities of 15 Moscow casinos and detained 100 individuals after a huge number of offices and apartments were searched, ICR’s Yulia Ivanova said. Initially, 47 of them will be charged with different crimes, she added. According to her office, investigators have united a total of 12 criminal cases. This is certainly one of the largest operations against illegal gambling businesses in Russia in the past few years.

Underground Casinos Earned Millions of Rubles Every Month

The criminal syndicate that organized the illegal gambling and betting operations probably started as a much smaller activity of A. Bazhanov. Over a period of 2 years, the network expanded to around 15 gaming clubs and casinos, which generated revenues worth hundreds of millions of rubles every month. The leaders of the group had a lavish lifestyle, according to investigators. They purchased a top-tier real state, as well as expensive cars and other luxury items.

The structure of the network was neatly set up, so the different levels of the operation functioned separately. Many of the individuals did not know their fellow syndicate members but it was the leaders of the organization who were surrounded by the ultimate secrecy. Various technological innovations were used such as IP phones and messaging apps, there was a strict hierarchy, and accomplices’ tasks were clearly distributed.

This is not the first investigation against illegal gambling groups in Russia, with various underground betting shops and gaming clubs being uncovered across the country. According to the data revealed by authorities, however, this large-scale operation has eliminated one of the largest networks of illegal casinos in Moscow. The organization led by Bazhanov is also one of the biggest criminal groups uncovered in the capital.

Formula One Inks Historic Sponsorship Deal to Launch Live Betting

Formula One Inks Historic Sponsorship Deal to Launch Live Betting

Formula One, the highest and most prestigious class of auto racing sports in the world, has surprisingly changed its years-long attitude towards sponsorship by bookies on Tuesday. The brand’s owner, Liberty Media, announced it has signed a sponsorship and data rights deal with Interregional Sports Group and Sportsradar.

As part of the groundbreaking partnership, the first ever F1 betting offering will be created, allowing fans to place live bets on the competition. According to an official press statement, released Tuesday, the deal enables the development of in-play betting markets. For the first time in the history of Formula One, millions of people around the world will be able to wager easily on Grand Prix.

This is the first strategic partnership for Formula One and according to media reports in The Edge, the contract between Liberty Media and the two companies costs US$8 billion. The Financial Times estimates that the deal will be worth at least $100 million over the next five years. Interregional Sports Group (ISG), which is a London-based marketing agency, will grant betting partnership rights to various betting brands in regulated markets. This will include on-screen graphics, trackside signage, as well as digital integration with the social platforms of Formula One, the statement reveals.

Although the details of the deal are still unclear, ISG would make an upfront payment to Formula One and then, it would sell the access rights to gambling companies. The other company in the partnership is Sportsradar, a sports betting and data analyzing firm, headquartered in Switzerland. According to the press release, the company and its Fraud Detection System will provide assistance with the safety and integrity policies. It already works with various rights holders and helps them prevent and fight match-fixing. Some of these leagues are NBA, NHL, FIFA, World Rugby, ITF, UEFA, AFC, and more.

F1’s First Betting Sponsorship Deal in 40 Years

During Bernie Ecclestone’s era, which continued for 40 years, the endorsement from betting companies was not allowed. Ecclestone who ran Formula One since the 1970’s did not want the brand to be associated with gambling in order to preserve its glamorous image. Most sports, leagues, and teams, on the other hand, have signed multi-million sponsorship deals with sports betting and gambling companies over the years. Such partnerships have increased in value in recent years, earning fortunes to some of the most successful teams in the world.

The deal with ISG and Sportsradar will not only allow fans to place live bets but it will also enable advertisements to be displayed on electronic billboards track-side. Gambling brands will be flashed on the track and on-screen during televised races. After this partnership takes into effect, Formula One will become a lot like English football, for example. This season, 17 of all 24 Championship clubs and 9 of all 20 Premier League clubs are sponsored by sportsbooks, which names are clearly displayed on footballers’ shirts.

The move is an important shift in the business strategy from what was practiced over decades under the previous owner. But it also comes in a time of controversy regarding the influence of gambling giants on sports groups and major sporting leagues. For this season, Formula One has 21 races which take place worldwide. Some of the countries where they are held, however, prohibit or restrict gambling ads during live broadcasts.
