Largest Online Gambling Bust in China

Largest Online Gambling Bust in China This week the Shanghai police announced that in April they arrested 63 individuals associated with an illegal online gambling operation which generated more than 113 billion yuan ($18 billion) according to the Global Times reports.

The ring operated in a Shanghai-based betting network for over a decade drawing in over 10,000 Chinese online punters by assisting them with placing bets with overseas websites.

This is the largest online case since the Internet became available on the Chinese mainland in 1994 said Li Ming, a press officer for the Songjiang district police in Shanghai.

In addition to the arrests, the bust resulted in 58 bank accounts that were frozen and the seizure of over 60,000 yuan in cash and computers.

Police say 41-year-old man named Hong is the leader of the ring and are seeking an arrest warrant for him.
  • the mans name is hong? just hong? no other name? what is this guy "the fonz" lol.they will never catch him without having his real name..
  • China's population is so vast that the number of gamblers could hardly be a surprise for anyone. What is a surprise, that many gamblers, that much traffic going to one online site, how is it possible to have stayed in business for more than ten years without being detected.
  • I believe chinesse restrictions is bad, but casinos still will try to achieve more players from China, as generally this is great market.
