Gambling addictions spike amid the pandemic crisis

For the first time in history, the entire globe shared a comparable struggle - the pandemic lockdown.

Casinos in South Korea temporarily close due to Covid-19 cases

After resuming services post lowdown closures, South Korean casinos are forced to temporarily close due to surging Covid-19 cases linked with their properties. As of last week, South Korea had 1,556 new cases in just 24 hours, and extreme measures are being taken in hopes to knock the numbers back down. Social distancing, mask mandates, and vaccine requirements are expected to be amplified by the end of this August. The Greater Seoul area is at the moment under Level 4 social distancing rules, and an additional ban on private gatherings of three or more people after 6 p.m. is in place. At other times, private gatherings of five or more people are not allowed.

New Amazon Lottery scam on the rise - don’t get finessed

Scammers are getting oh so creative, and it’s best not to get excited about anything at all until you’re confident that you’re not falling for a scam.

A man who was stupid enough to steal $86K in lottery tickets gets arrested

People often take things that don’t belong to them and don’t get caught. Perhaps you can get away with sneaking a snickers bar out of a grocery store or loot change from someone’s unlocked vehicle without ever getting noticed.

But good luck trying to steal $86K worth of items from a Pharmacy store - you will get busted, and there will be no mercy for such stupidity.
