Police in Anhui Province of China have arrested nine suspects for organising online gambling through QQ groups.

At the end of 2018, police received information that a victim had lost over 600,000 yuan (around 87,200 USD) through gambling on a website called “Jurassic.”

They then found multiple suspects through bank, Alipay and Tenpay accounts provided by the victim, but the investigation has been very difficult due to a large number of accounts and phone numbers involved.

After a thorough investigation, police finally targeted a gambling gang led by a suspect surnamed Chen. The gang of nine have convened almost 10,000 people participating in online gambling through QQ groups and made more than 50 million yuan (Around 7 million USD) in illegal profit.

The nine suspects were detained and more than 200 bank cards, 50 cellphones and eight computers were also seised.
