The raid took place at 3.30pm on Saturday afternoon at The Members Lounge off Soi Baukao in Pattaya, owned by Khun Gaewjai aged 52 and her Australian husband Mr Robert Steven Younger aged 58.
At the rear of the bar was a separate room containing a 50 inch TV which was showing live streaming of Australian horse racing.
Betting slips and a total of B72,000 in cash were seized and 17 foreign nationals and 4 Thais were arrested and taken to Pattaya Police Station along with the evidence collected at the scene.
Police revealed how Mr Younger had registered with a betting company in Australia and would make bets on behalf of customers at the bar which contravenes Thailand’s strict anti-gambling laws.
All those caught during the raid will be charged with a variety of gambling offences.
