China cracks down in ‘Asian Las Vegas’ – Guardian

From the Guardian:

Macau192Chinese authorities have arrested almost 1.2 million people suspected of illegal betting offences during a nine month crackdown, state media reported today.

The arrests were part of a nationwide anti- campaign from January to September in which police seized £166m and investigated 163,000 cases.

The crackdown was aimed mainly at preventing public officials from gambling away public money in Macau, the small special administrative region in southern China that is becoming known as the “Las Vegas of Asia”.
