Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – The online gambling server was found not to originate from Indonesia. However, several countries have legalized gambling, including Cambodia and the Philippines.

Budi ensured that his party would continue to try to reduce online gambling practices. However, he also admitted that this effort was not easy.

“We are trying our best, but technology is sophistication versus sophistication,” he said.

“But we have made the ecosystem not conducive, that’s our serious step,” added Budi.

Some of the steps taken include blocking accounts related to online gambling. In collaboration with the Financial Services Authority (OJK), 2,760 accounts have been blocked in the period 17 July-16 October 2023.

Apart from that, it also blocks with cellular operators. It turned out that it was also recognized that cell phone numbers promoting online gambling came from abroad.

“We get promotions from WhatsApp from other countries, from Cambodia and the Philippines, which means our cellular operator number is no longer in use,” explained Budi.

Budi also admitted that the practice of online gambling was so disturbing that President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) was worried. Including asking that online gambling not damage society.

“That is President Jokowi’s anxiety which has been mandated to me. So that online gambling does not damage society,” said Budi.
