Dec. 5, 2018 -- Police in east China's Anhui Province arrested eight people for organizing online gambling that involved over 500 gamblers and a cash flow of over 100 million yuan (around 14.6 million U.S. dollars).
In July, police in the city of Chuzhou received a tip-off about a gang organizing an online casino via an instant messaging app. The informant confessed to having lost 130,000 yuan since March in chat groups.
