The fifteen suspects under investigation in a fixed football games scam testified before an Athens prosecutor on Tuesday, The suspects, 14 men and one woman, face charges of money-laundering and fraud against OPAP S.A., the state-run betting and lottery pools group.
Based on OPAP claims, most of the suspects have won large amounts, up to 90,000 euros, by wagering on fixed games.

According to the prosecutor’s office, the suspects allegedly placed their bets into predictions for more than five fixed games in 2010.

Case files for "suspicious" matches are expected to be put together by prosecutors in other cities as well, including Thessaloniki, where similar instances of “super winners” have been reported.
