Chinese Police Hit Online Gamblers – January 27th, 2005

Casino NewsChinese police have arrested nearly 600 people in 22 provinces as part of their crackdown on gambling, the official China Daily newspaper reported.  Police raided two online gambling rings, one of them Taiwan-based, which they suspect may have handled bets worth as much as $60m (£32.1m).

Gambling is illegal in China, but is increasingly popular online and in casinos just across China’s borders. Border police have stepped up searches of travellers for illicit cash.

China launched its anti-gambling drive last week, after it emerged that a senior official had lost at least $300,000 in public money on trips to a North Korean casino. Cai Hao-wen has since gone on the run.
