An undercover policeman at a Pattaya Resort allegedly witnessed, tourists gambling using the game of connect four. The crackdown follows attempts to license darts and arrest bridge players last year in the beach side town. The undercover police comments that the “tourist friendly” image of Pattaya was at stake.
