The Cypriot police raided a house in Limassol in 2009 after they had received complaints that the house had turned into a gambling club. The police entered the house and found a group of female pensioners playing cards. The police recovered around €100 in stake money and confiscated playing cards and poker chips.

Two of the women have since the raid passed away and two are in nursing home. The organizer of the private home game, a 98-year-old Cypriot woman, can now get up to a 6-month jail term or a €750 fine since gambling for money, even in a private home game, is illegal in Cyprus.

Yioula Diakantoni, the daughter of the 98-year-old told the Associated Press, "They were playing with only very small sums of money, just to make it interesting. My mother has never done anyone harm and we hope she continues playing because it keeps her mind sharp."

Early this morning the police made a raid against Casino Cosmopol in Gothenburg, Sweden. The raid resulted in that 8 persons were arrested, of which 7 worked at the casino. According to the police, these 8 persons (2 men and 6 women) have cheated the casino of hundreds of thousands (Swedish crowns) since the summer this year.

The fraud has taken place at the casino's game tables and thanks to security cameras and security staff the police have plenty of proof. The arrested persons will be heard by the police during the day and it's probably just a matter of time before the police can give further information on the matter.
