Anti-gambling raid

BaccaratAuthorities carried out search operations at the premises, and seized multiple gambling-related items, including baccarat tokens. Additionally, police officers recovered an unknown amount of cash, plus several computers. Police believe that the leader of the gambling gang forms part of the Sun Yee On organization.

Five percent commission

The underground baccarat business made its debut about six months ago, and was equipped with a CCTV system. Players could access the illegal gambling spot between 6pm and 3am.
