Thailand’s AFC Champions League bet, BG Pathum, failed to stop Ulsan Hyundai from clinching the top position in the 16-round playoff of Division E’s Group F. During the opening minutes of the final Group F game held today (July 11) at the Leo Stadium in Bangkok, fans of the Thailand League 1 champions held high hopes that their wagers would win.
However, BG Pathum was able to keep Ulsan at bay only for a while. The Koreans proved their mettle as defending champions. The K league was able to prevent the Thai team from scoring by having possession of the ball most of the time. They were successful in hitting two goals that sealed their Number 1 position in the Group Stage; clearly relegating BG Pathum in the second spot.
Nevertheless, the betting fun continues for Thai football lovers since BG Pathum will advance into the next Round of 16 Playoffs with the top three finishers of other Division E Groups.
The Rabbits will enter the next round by clashing with another tough South Korean opponent, two-time AFC Champions Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors. On the other hand, Ulsan Hyundai will face Group I leader, Japanese champions Kawasaki Frontale. Like Ulsan, Kawasaki also finished the Group Stage 16-round with a perfect 6 out of 6 wins.
Asian bookies will have their hands full since international football organizations like the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) continue to deliver exciting football games that fuel their passion for both the ball game and for betting.
On top of the ongoing AFC Champions League games, the 2020 UEFA Euro Champions League is on the verge of conclusion, with England getting a shot at the title against Italy in the final match held today.
At the same time, the qualifying round for the 2021 UEFA Euro Cup is also underway, leading toward the tournament proper set to take place in September 2021 until May 2022. These are football betting opportunities that Thai gambling fanatics will not miss for anything.
Gambling is Not Legal in Thailand but Thais Gamble Anyway
Like in most Asian countries, gambling has always been part of the people’s culture. More so now that placing bets on international sports competitions is possible, along with the availability and accessibility of online casino games.
Apparently, gambling prohibitions and enforcements of gambling laws have not prevented Thai citizens from taking part in gambling activities. This is so because advanced technologies have made gambling online not only possible, but also safe and secure.
In Thailand, law enforcement agencies crackdown on illegal gambling joints but not on households where people engage in recreational gambling, either during friendly or social gatherings or as online entertainment.
Although the government has ordered Internet service providers (ISPs) to block offshore-based sportsbooks and online casinos, it does not pose a problem, especially for mobile gambling. Mobile applications and Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) enabled online casino and sportsbook operators to shield their customers’ sports betting and casino gaming activities from the prying eyes ISPs and local authorities.
UFABet for one, does not use websites of third party agents when giving customers access to football betting markets and online casino games. Instead, all that a registered customer needs to do is to apply for a preferred sports betting line directly from the website. The same approach applies to online casino customers. Those looking to play baccarat games can simply สมัครบาคาร่า directly with the website.
