In a recent crackdown on illegal online lottery operations, the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) has brought money laundering and gambling charges against Panthawat “Nott” Nakwisut, former CEO of the now-defunct Kong Salak Plus platform, and 16 other individuals. The suspects are part of a larger group of 41 individuals, with some currently imprisoned and others eluding arrest warrants.

DSI investigators submitted their report to prosecutors at the Attorney-General’s Office in Bangkok, detailing the defendants who are allegedly involved in the Kong Salak Plus scheme that was closed in February 2023. Panthawat, also known as “Nott Kong Salak Plus,” is accused of turning in winning lottery tickets to a man named “Foey” to collect cash prizes totaling 53 million baht. These funds were later deposited into his bank account, with the other 16 suspects accused of facilitating the creation of bank accounts and cash withdrawals.

These charges will be supported by a sizable case file containing over 10,000 pages of evidence against the 17 suspects. Even though all suspects have denied the allegations during questioning, DSI officials claim to have a cashier’s check as proof of their wrongdoings. Panthawat confirmed the legitimacy of the check but continued to deny the charges. However, investigators are confident in their evidence and have decided to pursue indictments.

Prior to the shutdown of Kong Salak Plus, Panthawat was known for promptly contacting lottery winners and personally delivering their prizes, garnering praise from online lottery enthusiasts. Following the closure of his platform, he turned to politics and founded the “Change” party to compete in the May 14 general election, with him at the helm as Party Leader.

The case against Panthawat and his fellow defendants is part of ongoing efforts to combat the illegal lottery trade and enforce gambling regulations in Thailand. With the prosecution’s office now in possession of the DSI report and supporting evidence, the legal process will determine the fate of the accused individuals and the future of illicit online lottery operations in the country.
