A huge $130 million gambling ring operating in Vietnam has been shut down by police, as a raid in the Ha Tinh province was conducted.
The rings were being run by a gang, and used two online betting services to run their racket. There were 1,566 accounts tied to the ring, with about a third being used for gamblers. The raid had police from five regions, including Ho Chi Minh City, Phu Yen, Binh Dinh, Khanh Hoa, and Ha Tinh.
It's believed that the rings were active for about seven months, meaning that there was about $21.6 million raised by wagers each month.
45 people are being looked at by authorities, with 16 of them being gamblers and the best being involved in the ring's operation.
No comment on the raid was available as of press time.
