That mysterious punter's club

I noticed reports on this story a little while ago and had been meaning to share it. It reminds me of an earlier group of Australian punters, as well as a key plot line from two of dick Francis’s novels.
I will quote just the first paragraph form the SMR report:

“The head of a secretive "Punters Club" which uses sophisticated software to make thousands of calculated online bets across the globe each day, allegedly made more than $36 million over three years from the venture but did not declare a single cent of it to the Australian Taxation Office, court documents reveal.”
The standard of maths teaching at the University of Tasmania is obviously impressive!
