2 Punters with Law Problems

Playing casino games or bingo on the internet should be a fun, relaxing hobby but recently it got a couple of punters into serious trouble with the law.

The first incident happened in the UK, when a 55 year old lady decided to steal cash from her workplace to play for some bingo games. In all, Elizabeth Sutton swiped £73,566 from Camelot Automotive. She worked there as an Administration Manager and her fraud caused the company to hit financial problems and colleagues to go a couple of years with a pay rise.    

The period in which she had grabbed all this cash from the company was from the start of December in 2009 through to August in 2011 and it came to light when £40,000 which was due to be paid to a Portuguese firm wasn’t sent over. She was sentenced to 20 months in jail for the theft and the judge said that she should “think about the effect” her actions had while she is sitting in her cell.

A South African Winner Loses

The other case of the law winning against a punter came in South Africa, where a chap from Johannesburg has a R40, 000 win snatched off him by the South African National Gaming Board.

This happened when he put a R20, 000 wager on a UK betting site and doubled his money. However, it was snatched off him before he could even see it and the CEO of the South African Gaming Board, Baby Tyawa, said that any type of “unlicensed online gambling” is a criminal offence in that country.
