The police seized 1,127 online gambling simulators, worth RM2.7 million, in a raid at a godown in Seri Kembangan early today.
Serdang police chief Ismadi Borhan said the raid was conducted at about 1am after a two-day surveillance following a tip-off, but no arrest was made.
The imported online gambling simulators were intended to be delivered to more than 1,000 online gambling premises nationwide, Ismadi told reporters at the godown in Taman Bukit Serdang today.
He said the seizure was the biggest involving online gambling simulators and the police were looking for the mastermind of the syndicate, as well as the owner of the godown.
The machines will be handed over to the Customs Department for investigation under Section 135 (1)(a) of the Customs Act 1967.
