The ring was worth more than VNĐ120 billion (US$5.3 million).

Three of the defendants - Lê Quang Vinh, 31, who headed the ring; Trần Anh Dương, 22, and Nguyễn Mạnh Tùng, 22 - will be prosecuted for organising the gambling while the rest will be prosecuted for gambling.

The ring was busted last month after local police checked 10 gambling points in Khoái Châu and Tiên Lữ districts. Police arrested 14 persons and seized nearly VNĐ400 million in cash, two cars, 15 mobile phones, three computers and other items.  

Initial investigation revealed that the defendants often used social networking sites, such as Zalo and Facebook, as well as mobile messages to organise gambling. They also used websites to join football betting games at regional and international levels.

The case is under further investigation.
