Apparently, there's a drug maker that has a fancy for gambling, as Russian authorities seized hundreds of bricks of cocaine adorned with bet365's logo.
The Russian Federal Customs Service revealed that they seized 400 kilograms of cocaine at the shipping port in St. Petersburg. The shipment originated from Ecuador, and was stored in a shipping container. The bricks had bet365's logo printed on the outside and were stamped with the word "BET" on the actual coke itself.
Bet365 has been working to establish a sportsbetting foothold in Russia, and it's not known whether incidents like this will have any impact on them. Right now, Russian authorities are working to see who in the country was expecting the shipment so that they can break up the ring.
