The emergence of illegal online gambling (IOG) has led to an increase in gambling addiction and threats to cyber security. Since IOG is advertised through short message service (SMS), we propose a novel system to detect and extract uniform resource locator (URL) information from SMS spam. For majority of the cases, these URLs are not directly linked to a real website address, which causes difficulties for detection systems. In order to address this problem, we utilized a readable transformation technique (RTT). The resulting suggestions can be enhanced to extract URLs automatically from SMS spam, which will allow local authorities identify and block IOG operations.
