They were running an online gambling operation turning over 2 million Yuan or about 8 million baht a month.

The raid was led by Chonburi provincial police chief Maj-Gen Nanthachart Suphamongkhon in conjunction with tourist and immigration police.

Maj-Gen Nanthachart said that suspicions were aroused after a large number of tourists were spotted going into rooms 421/114 and 421/117.

Armed with a Pattaya court search warrant the authorities found the Chinese and a host of evidence in the form of computer notebooks, mobile phones and electronic accounts. 

In one room there were 14 men and 3 women taking bets while there were two people in another room. 

Nearly 200 phones were seized. 

All those arrested have been booked with working illegally. 

They were paid 10,000 Yuan or about 40,000 baht a month, reported Daily News.
