Special forces from the department of public administration and the Bang Pa-In district chief descended on a casino being run in the area.

 

The raid followed complaints to the government's Damrongtham body that the casino9 was breaking up families. 

 

The owner had boasted that he had the authorities in his pocket and was immune from prosecution. 

 

The casino in the Sinthiwa Thani area had been operating for a long time. It was in a one story air-con building encompassing 350 square meters.

 

Outside were many cars and motorcycles. A sliding door was guarded. 

 

A team of sixty officers took part in the raid sealing all entrances.

A total of 49 men and 73 women were arrested. Of these 94 were players and 28 described as hosts. 

 

There was one High-Low table, three "Seua Mangkorn" (Tiger Dragon) card games and four slot machines. 

 

Staff were exchanging cash for chips. Cash totalling 939,070 baht was seized. Records showed a daily turnover of 1.2 to 1.3 million baht.

 

All those arrested were taken to the Bang Pa-In district office thence to the local police station for prosecution.

 

The inquiry is being widened to catch the mastermind behind the operation.

As gambling seems to be entrenched in most if not all Provences possibly the Government should legalize and reap the taxes.  A legal "Casino" would make control and honesty of the gaming possible.  I think the Lao and Cambodian casino's would not have  so many Thai's going out of country then, keeping their Baht at home.

Why do you think that, out of all the countries in the region, only Thailand has no casinos? Because then the untouchable VIPs who lurk in the shadows, pull the strings and own the illegal ones would lose their billions. I imagine this particular owner upset someone even higher up the VIP chain and so a raid was arranged.

Casinos could save Thailand 

Would bring the chinese tourists,and help to sell some of the thousands of empty condos,but would be disasterous for local thai people getting addicted to gambling.

As effectively as putting up speed limit signs on roads.

What actually happened to all those retired "dirty farang" who were "caught" playing bridge, booked and released on bail? It took a Khunying to explain to the BiB, that Bridge is an Olympic sport, which in turn was of little to no interest to the brown-dressed clowns in Pattaya. 

Just asking ........
