Victoria Police announced on Friday afternoon that six Australians have been arrested in connection with an investigation into rigging Counter-Strike: Global Offensive matches, the first major case of its kind in Australia.


An investigation began in March this year after a betting agency tipped off police about suspicious activity around a CS:GO tournament. “It’s alleged that players were arranging to throw matches and subsequently placing bets on those matches,” Victoria Police said in a release.


At least five matches were affected by the activity, with warrants served and four men arrested on Wednesday. Another warrant was executed by Western Australian police in Perth, but no arrests were made there. Two more warrants were executed today in Mount Eliza, resulting in two more arrests.
