This week in The Ledger we revisit the arrest of a man in connection with the ZKasino scam in the Netherlands, CoinPoker kicks off its CSOP+ tournament and MegaDice celebrates a successful pre-sale.

The Ledger was impressed to learn this week that Police in the Netherlands had already detained someone in connection with the suspected ZKasino scam.

A 26-year-old man was arrested on April 29 on suspicion of fraud, embezzlement, and money laundering, according to the country’s Fiscal Information and Investigation Service.

They also reported seizing assets worth more than €11.4m, including cryptocurrencies, real estate, and luxury vehicles.

Meanwhile, in more positive news, online crypto poker platform CoinPoker kicked off its CSOP Plus (CSOP+) tournament, which has been dubbed as the most significant crypto poker event of the year.

CSOP+ participants can compete for a portion of a $25m prize pool. The tournament will run throughout May, with up to 18 events per day. Although, no contests are scheduled for Fridays.

Crypto gambling platform Mega Dice has sold 11,558,533 tokens worth almost $800,000, reaching a major milestone in the presale for its native token $DICE.

The presale launched in the middle of April on Solana with an initial presale price of $0.069. The price is expected to increase and will be dictated by market dynamics once the presale is concluded.

Elsewhere this week, virtual horse racing game Photo Finish LIVE introduced the Pick’Em Challenge Series which is set to take place every Thursday and Saturday.

Various prizes will be up for grabs with different daily, weekly and seasonal prize pools. Daily prizes are divided into: overall winners, top daily winners, and beat Bryce. The overall winners will have the chance to win a horse in case they guess correctly 50% of the winners on any given day.

This week also saw Azuro and Chiliz announce they had joined forces in a partnership meant to boost the adoption of on-chain sports prediction markets.

And finally, renowned European soccer club AC Milan revealed it has signed a partnership with crypto gambling platform TG.Casino.
