CCTV News Client reported on June 3 that in many "wild" casinos, "rolling dice", also commonly known as "rolling dice", bet on odds and evens. This gambling method is simple and does not depend on venues. Restricted and chased by many gamblers. In some villages in Hubei, this form of gambling has shown a high incidence in recent years. According to insiders, behind the rise of these wild casinos, professional companies are promoting them. Then, who is operating the gambling?
According to a live video of a wild gambling provided to reporters by an insider, in a simple shed constructed of colored striped plastic sheeting and branches, hundreds of people were sitting or standing around a ten-meter long The big table, there are piles of cash on the table, and the onlookers are still throwing money on the table to place bets, the scene is very lively.
"Pillars" place big bets, "hooks" increase popularity
Insiders told reporters that in this wild casino, only some people sitting at the table are real big gamblers. They are also called "pillars" in the jargon. These people bet thousands of yuan or even tens of thousands of yuan each time. The people standing behind them are almost all nearby villagers or migrant workers. Most of them come to gamble, and some are spent by organizers. People hired by money are called "hooks" in the jargon, and their bets are small in order to increase the popularity of the casino. Driven by the "hooks", the atmosphere on the scene will soon become popular.
Insider: Because that thing is too simple, we just shake up two dice here. Either singular or even, which means a 50% probability of winning and a 50% probability of losing. Seeing that someone else wins, I will win 10,000 to 20,000 in one go. I feel very exciting. I may bet, I will place two hundred or five hundred.
A gambling game can reach millions of liquidity
The insider said that after a bet, the liquidity on the table can reach millions. Even a person with a small bet may win or lose tens of thousands. He has seen some migrant workers once. Just lose thousands of dollars.
And this lively casino is not spontaneously issued by people participating in the gambling. There is a complete industrial chain behind it. In this industry chain, there are local "gambling companies" responsible for setting up venues and organizing gamblers, and grading companies that provide POS machines to swipe cards on site. The most important thing is the so-called "Emperor Company" from outside the country.
Insider: "Emperor" is a black word on our side, which actually refers to the dealer. Because the casino table at that time was generally more than ten meters long, but he was the only one who could sit on the table alone. In order to show his status, the idiom on our side was called "the emperor." "Emperor" may have been alone in the past, but now because of the "Emperor" gambling, the wins and losses are relatively large. It may be hundreds of thousands, or even a large casino may be several million. Then you need to follow Doing business is like a partnership, so one, two, three, four, five, six, maybe a dozen or seven or eight people, forming an "Emperor's Company."
The dealer has a clear division of labor and determines the casino rules
In the picture above, the man wearing a white T-shirt and shaking dice is a member of the so-called "Emperor Company". The dice shaker is also known as the "dealer" at the scene and is usually held by the person with the best luck. , Because he is directly related to the probability of winning or losing. In addition to the "croupier", other people also have their own division of labor.
Insider: There are two people standing by the side in the casino, they are responsible for example, the gambler loses money, he collects the gambler's money, and collects it, the gambler wins the money, they want to put the money Send it out, that's it. Then there is a person's backpack. If we call it a backpack, it may mean that all the money for gambling is in the hands of the person with that backpack. For example, the limit on the table is a gambling game of 400,000, then 400,000 is placed on the table, and if I win more, I may put the 100,000 or 200,000 in the bag. Anyway, there is always that much money on the table..
It is understood that the rules of the game in the casino are all made by the so-called "Emperor Company". The time of each game ranges from one hour to three hours. If the big gamblers lose money or the dealer doesn't want to play anymore, the game ends. In order to avoid investigation by the public security organs, most of these wild casinos are built in small woods or mountains off the beaten track. For some informed villagers who do not participate in gambling, gambling companies will use small favors to win them over.
Insider: They may develop. For example, in the surrounding villagers, one or two hundred yuan a day, asking him to watch together, or to help, work in the casino to help, in this case, they will win over the hearts of the local villagers. Lest they report or file a complaint.
Hidden gambling dens, temporary notice of gambling locations
There is no doubt that once this kind of gambling controlled by professional companies spreads in rural areas, it will inevitably affect local social security. Since the beginning of this year, the Xianning police in Hubei has taken away several such wild casinos. Surprisingly, the gamblers in the case, the so-called "Emperor Company" and the "Gambling Company" did not know each other. So, what exactly are these wild casinos formed? How is the profit divided?
Under the leadership of the police handling the case, the reporter came to a gambling den located in the fringe of urban and rural areas. This gambling den is hidden in a small forest. There is no way up the mountain. If there is no guidance, it is difficult for outsiders to find it. According to the police handling the case, this den is just one of the casinos built by the gambling gang that they destroyed in March this year. In order to evade the police, gambling companies usually set up several such hidden venues at the same time. The jargon is called "kiln mouth". Which "kiln mouth" the gambling person goes to every day is given a temporary notice.
Jin Jinsong, captain of the Action Team of the Public Security Detachment of the Xianning Public Security Bureau: His watchman, the guards two hours in advance, for example, at 2 o'clock in the afternoon, he will inform at 12 o'clock in the afternoon, where do you go, for example Speaking of this venue, at venue 1, you go to patrol the mountain, then set the card points, then layout, and then start to notify all the players to come in.
Build a venue and look around for strong gamblers
Choosing a site, setting up a venue, and ensuring the safety of the casino is just the first step for the gambling company. To make each casino exist longer, you also need to find strong players. Therefore, the gambling company is responsible People will mobilize friends and look for gamblers everywhere. For some foreign players, sometimes they have to contact the car to pick them up.
Suspect Zhang Jianbai: If you think he likes gambling, sometimes call him and ask him to bring some people over when he sees no one is there. The one who brings the gambling is to call people. There are locals, Wuhan, or our neighbors. This gambler does not mean that all of them belong to Xianning.
The gamblers don’t know each other, the middleman is responsible for the matchmaking
From February to March this year, the suspect Zhang Jianbai organized more than 40 gambling games, and nearly 100 people were invited to participate in each game. However, he said that he was not familiar with the people of the so-called "Emperor Company", and every time the middleman was responsible for the intermediary, the suspect Fu Zhichao was one of them.
The suspect Fu Zhichao: I know people from Qianjiang, not every wave of people I know. For example, if I know someone who does this, he will find someone else. Find seven or eight organizations to come here. It's like this.
The criminal suspect Huang Ao (member of "Emperor Company"): He can introduce the introducer in many places, that is, he can tell you, for example, Jianli, would you like to do it? Do you have a job now? You can't do it anymore. Then we also asked him whether I bet a lot in that place. If the bet is big, how big is the bet, and if the bet is big, we need to see if we can do it. You can contact us. If we can't do it, we can't do it. Like ours, it's usually done in a small way, and it's usually done in a small place.
The casino earns at least tens of thousands of yuan a day
Fu Zhichao confessed that he introduced two so-called "Emperor Companies" from Qianjiang, including Huang Ao, to go to Xianning for gambling. After each game, the "gambling company" and the so-called "Emperor Company" Each paid him a referral fee of 1,000 yuan.
And the money is insignificant relative to the profitability of the gambling company. According to the rules of the casino, the so-called "Emperor Company" in addition to gambling with the gamblers to determine the winners or losers, before the start of the gambling, the "croupier" will use two dice to roll out a specific point. Single, after the bet is officially opened, when the specific points of 2 and 5 appear(I.e. "Familiarity") Later, after the gambler bets on the order, the so-called "Emperor Company" only pays half of the gambling funds, and the other half of the gambling funds are taken as a rake, commonly known as "cylinder money", which is the casino profit. This money is usually divided between the so-called "Emperor Company" and the local gambling company at a ratio of three to seven. Usually, after a gambling game, the "cylinder money" can range from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands. In other words, the daily profit of the gambling company and the so-called emperor company is at least tens of thousands of yuan.
Suspect Huang Ao: He mainly relies on "familiar points". If there are more "familiar points", he may have a higher profit. If you lose more, you may hit 100,000 today." Be familiar". If there are 3 points for your emperor, you divide 30,000 yuan. If you lose 50,000 yuan in the last order, it means that I lost 50,000 yuan, but I still divided 30,000 yuan in my "familiar point". , Which is equivalent to losing 20,000 like this.
From gambler to banker, the offender was once the victim
During the interview, the reporter also noticed that many of the criminal suspects involved in the case were in the quagmire of gambling. Huang Ao, a member of the Qianjiang Emperor’s company captured by the Xianning police not long ago, is one of them. He used to be in his hometown. He is a well-known vegetable grower with an annual income of several hundred thousand. Then, how did he become a banker from a gambling player step by step?
According to Huang Ao, he first started gambling mainly with mahjong. Later, he lost a lot of times, so he wanted to get back to his money quickly by playing dice in a wild casino. He didn't expect to be in a wild casino. He lost more.
Suspect Huang Ao: You bet and lose money and then you find a way, maybe my channel is different from others. Maybe when I lose money, don’t I always see others win? The Emperor Company always wins, so I will find a way to integrate into the Emperor Company. I think so, so I gradually become a member of the Emperor Company.
Huang Ao joined a bookmaker gang through the way of buying shares, and most of his partners, like him, also lost money because of gambling, so the idea of becoming a bookmaker was born. In the past few months, their company has gone to Hunan, Guangdong and other provinces to take part in gambling. Although there are gains, because he himself is also addicted to gambling, over the years, not only has he lost millions of his family property, but also owed a large amount of debt. The family relies on his father alone to grow vegetables to pay off the debt.
Suspect: (My father) over 50, one eye can’t see, and I’m tired of doing it. How do you say, how can I say it, I’m doing it and not doing it, my dad seems to owe the house Account, and help me pay it back every way.
Reporter: Have you ever calculated how much debt you owe others?
Interviewee: Yes, I’m exaggerating. I didn’t even ask people who owed other people money before. Others owed a lot. Others ran away and went to work. I want this. I can’t get in touch with the money back to others.
Aiming at "wild" casinos, the police explored the mode of fighting
Looking back on his own experience, Huang Ao was deeply regretful. The Xianning police also stated that in response to the current illegal activities organized by such professional companies in the wild casinos, the public security department is also exploring effective methods for dealing with the illegal activities of the Ministry of Public Security in conjunction with the "chain-breaking operation".
Jin Jinsong, Captain of the Action Team of the Public Security Detachment of the Public Security Bureau of Xianning: If you have a criminal record and have been beaten by us within a period of time, you must be investigated for your criminal record, executed together, and severely punished. Then, the police station and the various related departments, that is to say, your jurisdiction and the scope of your functions are under investigation and accountability. Just say that the higher-level authority hit the casino in your place, you haven’t reported it, you haven’t found it, or even you haven’t taken any measures, then this disciplinary action will be taken, and the main person in charge will be held accountable and held accountable. We supervise, and our disciplinary committee holds accountability.
