Internet1x2.com, an online gambling site specializing in soccer betting, was the scene of several arrests this week. The company, which is based in Israel has been operating now for a decade. It was started by two brothers and former Israeli Basketball players. It gained popularity a few years ago when it was associated with Yahoops.com, which was almost sued by the search engine Yahoo!. On Tuesday, the police uncovered the illegal online gambling network, which was reputed for its slow pays, and arrested 5 people who were suspected of operating an online gambling network catering to Israeli gamblers. Other members of the Organization who were involved with providing technical support to the websites and managing finances and payments as well as several gamblers, were also detained.
According to the Israeli police, this is just a taste of what is in store for those persons who insist on operating illegal online gambling operations.
