This week Chinese law enforcement personnel in the Jiangsu Province announced that they have conducted a cross-border gambling raid, which saw 36 people arrested.
21 of those taken into custody were in the Philippines, with another 15 in China. The ring was suspected of taking in about $48 million USD in wagers, and operated a series of six online betting sites. In addition to the arrests, a variety of computers, credit cards, cellular phones, and other evidence was seized by authorities. It is believed that the gambling websites operated throughout China, and there were also a series of raids in the provinces of Guandong, Guangxi, Jiangsiu, Chongqing, and Sichuan provinces.
The raid comes a week after police in Shanghai revealed that they had broken up a gambling ring that has generated $7.5 million in bets, where 48 people were taken into custody.
