Masquerading as 24 hour internet cafe
 
Tokyo Metropolitan Police have nabbed three suspects in Tokyo's red-light district accused of running an online casino called Internet Nevada under the guise of a 24-hour internet cafe.
 
Suspects include 55-year-old manager Takeshi Yoshida and two other employees who have reportedly admitted to the charges.
 
The gambling operation apparently used a points system that saw its customers paid 100 Yen for each point they gained or bet they won.
 
Internet Nevada is estimated to have generated revenues of over 70 Million Yen (approx. USD 889 448).
