China, Malaysia and the Philippines are all known for harboring illegal gambling rings. Though authorities work towards dismantling all illegal gambling operations within these three countries, it always seems another is popping up. Police in the Hunan & Guadong provinces of China has announced that they’ve arrested a total of ninety-eight people during a police raid on an illegal gambling ring.
This is a large arrest percentage for a gambling ring which has pleased Guadong and Hunan authorities. Apparently a total of seventy-eight billion dollars in wagers had been made throughout the years that this gambling ring had operated, this illegal gambling operation was processed throughout twelve different venues and had contact with over five hundred internet gambling sites. The sites are slated to service millions of people.
This is one of the largest crackdowns on illegal gambling in China since they began cracking down on these illegal operations two years ago. Authorities in China, Malaysia and the Philippines all hope to have illegal online gambling abolished from their respective countries by 2020. If this is the case, then it’s possible that a regulated & licensed online gambling industry within Asia could be a possibly by 2025 – 2030.
Authorities have yet to release any statements to the American media or European media regarding this manner. That isn’t surprising as in most cases the China government opts out of releasing information regarding anything to do in the country, this is due to the fact that China is a communist regime run state.
