A combined police and military backed raid in the Laksi area of Bangkok resulted in the arrest of 78 gamblers and seven guns and ammunition.
The raid last night in a large house was in Soi Chin Khet, a sub-soi off Ngam Wong Wan Soi 47. Police had earlier received reports that up to 100 gamblers a night were playing hi-lo and dice games there.
Some of the clientele managed to flee but 48 men and 30 women were taken to Thung Song Hong police station for questioning.
Casino equipment, computers, money as well as seven guns were confiscated.
The enquiry is expected to expand to see what influential people, if any, were behind the casino.
