Russia’s Federal Customs Service has seized 400 kilograms of cocaine at the St. Petersburg port. What made the case more mysterious was that bricks of cocaine were found with the logo of online gambling operator Bet365. Also, the brick themselves appear to have been molded with the word ‘BET’. The timing of the bust couldn’t be any more unfortunate as Bet365 is planning to launch its online sports betting joint venture in Russia and is set to get its local license in the first half of 2019.
