Casino action set in Taipei TV studio
It was reported by the Taiwanese media that last week the local police raided and shut down a three-month old illegal online gambling operation, which set the unspecified “casino in a rented TV studio in Taipei, Taiwan.
According to the reports, the casino included casino tables, roulette wheels, poker chips and hired models masquerading as dealers. Also, in those three months of its work, the "casino" allegedly signed up 1000 customers.
The operation supported a live broadcast of the staged "action" onto a website, whereas TV screens airing programs by China-based broadcasters were screened to create the illusion that the casino was being run from Mainland China. However, the website was supposedly hosted on a Philippines-based server.
The Taiwanese Police arrested sixteen dealers, workers and modeling agents in the raid and it was stated that the identification of the remaining members of the operation is ongoing, it was reported by asiaone.com
