Police take down fake gaming chip gang

Macau’s judiciary police have cracked down a fake gaming chip case that had been on-going for more than two years, local media reports.

Last Thursday, seven local residents were arrested for allegedly earning MOP$18 million (US$2.2 million) using fake chips at the casinos since August 2017, following a long investigation.

The gang included five men and two women and were caught with 199 fake gaming chips, each valued at HK$100,000.

Police found that the gang had also been operating illegal online gambling operations as well.
