Deputy Commissioner Graham Ashton said people needed to be aware that this sort of activity was illegal in Victoria.
“Victoria now has specific legislation that covers offences related to cheating at gambling,” DC Ashton said.
“Offences include engaging in conduct that corrupts a betting outcome, facilitating conduct that could corrupt a betting outcome and use of corrupt conduct information for betting purposes.
“These offences carry hefty penalties of up to 10 years in prison.
“We will be monitoring matches for the remainder of the tournament, so if you’re thinking of engaging in this kind of behaviour, think again.”
