Illegal casino broken up in Málaga

There were 110 players at the site on an industrial estate when the police raided last Friday

Málaga National Police last week raided a hidden casino in the city and found 110 players to be active, each one of them having paid 35 € for access. Most of the players were aged between 25 and 40 and many had travelled from across the province.

Police say news of the venue was generally spread by word of mouth, but also on social networking sites on the Internet.

Their raid took place on Friday night February 19, but news of it was released on Wednesday. It came after three months of investigations.

Illegal gambling is a crime under the Spanish Penal Code and the two organisers on this occasion face a fine of between 30,000 and 300,000 €.
