Five Chinese nationals arrested for running an online casino in San Sai

Five Chinese nationals have been arrested at a house in San Sai in relation to running an illegal online casino from the premises.

The men are claimed to have rented the house in Moo 1 San Sai Noi three months ago where they then set up an online casino that primarily catered to people in Guangzhou with an unnamed “Chinese card game.”

Business was good for the casino having managed to obtain thousands of customers with a turnover in excess of 10 million baht in the last month.

Ironically, when confessing to police the men said they had set up shop in Chiang Mai as they believed the laws were stricter in China – they were clearly deeply mistaken.

The men have been detained in custody pending a court date.
