ATTRACTIVE dealers - check.

Casino tables, roulette wheels and poker chips - check.

The gambling room would not look out of place in any casino.

But where were the punters?

The "casino" was a set in a rented TV studio and the centre piece for an illegal gambling website in Taipei, Taiwan.

Apple Daily Taiwan reported that the three-month-old operation was shutdown after a raid by Taiwanese police on Saturday evening.

Sixteen dealers, workers and modelling agents were arrested.

Two of the female dealers were found to be underage - they were 16 and 17 respectively.

24/7 operation

The gambling operation was broadcast live on the website for 24 hours daily, so those who signed up as members could gamble round the clock.

The website was said to have paid NT$1.11 million (S$47,020) to a modelling agency for 40 models to work as their "croupiers".

The models were told to tie up their hair, put on heavy make-up and wear revealing dresses to entice customers.

They were also told to hold the dice containers close to their chests when rolling dice.

The women worked on three shifts, with eight dealers on each shift.

Customers could even choose their favourite dealers, who were each assigned to one of eight casino tables, five of which were used for baccarat.

The casino had managed to draw more than 1,000 customers in just three months.

To create the illusion that the casino was being run from mainland China, TV monitors mounted on the walls screened programmes aired by China-based broadcasters.

The website itself was apparently hosted on a server based in the Philippines.

Taiwanese police are conducting further investigations to identify the remaining members of the operation.
