The Stop Gambling Foundation believes, as many as five million Thais are expected to participate in FIFA 2022 World Cup online betting during the month-long competition, including approximately one million new participants.
Stop Gambling Foundation stated that up to 4 million people are regular online football betters.
During the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, that number is expected to rise by about one million, with youths accounting for 13% of the total.
Thanakorn Komkrit, head of the Stop Gambling Foundation said that that monitoring and control have become more difficult since betting migrated to online platforms.
Meanwhile, professional web development companies, mostly based overseas, have been competing to offer services developing online betting platforms for those looking to open betting sites for the FIFA 2022 World Cup matches.
According to one such website administrator, developing a betting website could cost up to a million baht because each website will have more than ten gambling links.
To save money, he said that there are about 12 companies that offer leasing services at Bt120,000-Bt150,000 per site. Saying that those who want their own FIFA betting site would have to pay an additional 15% to the site owner on top of the Bt1million for website development.
When a football better logs into the system to begin betting, they will notice that several other links offering better deals will appear on the screen of their smartphone if they uses their 2022 World Cup betting websites.
