    After that news I've started to wonder if there are legal gambling at all in China. I guess it's very tough for the local authorities to control the illegal actions of so huge population. 140 people were arrested and that's probably would be a huge number in any country but China.

    I know that China does have legal gambling in what they call their special administrative regions which are Hong Kong and Macau. Online gambling of any kind is a no, no......... I agree with pinkxxx to a degree. In the large scheme of things, it isn't that many, but 1,980 cases since March is a large number, if that makes any sense. I wished these governments would allow people to make up their own minds about online gambling. I don't know that these arrests are for real illegal gambling, which I agree, these sites need to be removed by the proper authorities or if China's residents are partaking in online gambling and that too is illegal.

    I was going to say that was a lot of people but for the number of population in China it isn't that many . Nonetheless....These stories are growing in all countries, crack down on illegal online gambling . You would think they would be smart enough not to chance it but I guess the profit out weighs the risk to them. The crack downs are only going to increase they seem to be good at busting them now , no matter what country they are in .
