Since June last year, Mr. A's group, who are junior high school classmates and seniors and juniors in the neighborhood, have set up an office in Bupyeong-gu, Incheon, and have been broadcasting their own "baccarat" gambling on YouTube 6 hours a day.

After posting the address of the social media chat room in the channel chat room, when users entered the channel, they were directed to the gambling site.

In order to avoid being tracked by the police, they bought other people's accounts and ran 2 YouTube channels, with a total of more than 33,23 subscribers.

The amount of money deposited into gambling accounts by people who flowed into gambling sites in this way reached 450 billion won.

It was investigated that Mr. A received 8 million won in cash from the operator of a gambling site in exchange for collecting members, and paid his accomplices an allowance of 300 million won to 1 million won per month.

Police officials warned that illegal gambling is basically a structure in which the gambling house has no choice but to gain an advantage, so the probability of winning money is low, and there is no way to get legal redress because the moment you use the gambling site, you become a suspect.
