Police in east China's Anhui province have detained eight people for organizing cross-border online gambling, which involves over 130 million yuan (around US$19.2 million).

Earlier in December 2018, a victim reported to the local police of Sixian county that he had lost over 100,000 yuan in a group chat on QQ, a major social media platform, since March.

After a thorough investigation, police traced the online gambling operation to Quanzhou county, Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region in south China.

Police said the online gambling platform was based in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, and the illegal business was operated by Chinese suspects in Hanoi and Guangxi.

The police launched a raid in early February when suspects returned to China for the Spring Festival, or Lunar New Year, a traditional occasion for family gatherings.

Eight suspects were arrested at different places including Guangxi and provinces of Guangdong, Jiangsu, and Hubei. Three vehicles, over 20 computers and 30 cell phones were confiscated on site.

Further investigation is underway.
