‘The global illegal betting market is likely to be as big as $500bn in transactions, with Asia as the driver. The world’s largest legal and illegal betting outlets worldwide are based in Asia and they are likely responsible for 70 to 80 per cent of that illegal market,' said Martin Purbrick, director of security and integrity for the Hong Kong Jockey Club.  He added: ‘The growth of illegal betting in Asia has led to global expansion of the operators, the consequent spread of criminal involvement in racing and other sports betting markets, as well as being a driver for other criminal problems such as sports corruption and money laundering.’
With demand high to take part in the €12m jackpot lotto draw on Wednesday, a number of customers were unable to purchase tickets due to a DDoS attack aimed at PLI’s servers. “Indications are that this morning’s technical issues were as a result of a DDOS attack affecting our communications networks,” said PLI in a statement. “The issues were resolved by the National Lottery’s DDOS protection systems, limiting disruption and restoring all operations within two hours.”
