Hong Kong Authorities Bust Major Online Gambling Ring - On Monday, China’s official state media agency Xinhua announced the arrests on Sunday of 71 individuals suspected of involvement in a major online gambling ring that involved illegal wagering by Chinese mainland gamblers on Hong Kong’s legal gambling industry.

Guangdong police claim to have frozen RMB 21m (US $3.2m) worth of online wagers.

The ring was organized into four tiers: “overseas bookmakers, senior brokers, brokers and gamblers. The senior brokers sometimes acted as the bookmakers and received bets directly from gamblers. Or they passed the bets to overseas bookmakers to earn brokerage.”
