Horse betting is becoming an endemic problem in Singapore

Police in Singapore are investigating potential widespread illegal horse betting across the country. In the latest crackdown, they raided a number of operations and are investigating more than 80 for their involvement.

The Singapore Police Force (SPF) announced on Tuesday, 22 February 2022, that it, along with the Criminal Investigation Department, targeted six illegal gambling locations across the country from February 14 to 20. The raids took place in Bedok, Marsiling, Jurong West, and others.

As a result of the interventions, the SPF identified suspects who were either leading the illegal horse racing activity or just participating as gamblers. Both categories carry their own type of punishment, and police will now determine who deserves which.

Some of those arrested were organizers and others were bettors. Police also picked up a few runners, individuals who gather information on the betting activity taking place around the course.

Phone records and documentation will help the investigation. The SPF seized a number of phones, along with paperwork, as well as more than $30,000 in cash. It’s possible, through the documentation, that those involved might face additional charges. In addition, police may make more arrests.

Reports about the raids didn’t specify if the individuals are still in custody, or if they are free pending the outcome of the investigations.
