Yet in spite of this continuous threat, the number of Malaysian gamblers is not decreasing, and none are more keen gamblers than the football enthusiasts.
It’s getting more and more attention and heats are getting higher as team draws for the World Cup next year in South Africa this week, and specialists comment that illegitimate bookies are by now getting ready to rake in big amount of dollars on football’s largest spectacular.
Year by year, a big portion of the expected $10 billion made by illegitimate gaming organizations generated from bets on international football matches, and in World Cup years this amount is going to rise. And in spite of prohibitions and police raid, football bookies have kept on succeeding by providing betting odds online.
