Nguyen Van Duong’s Role in the Billion-Dollar Gambling Case
The billion-dollar gambling case involving the online gambling ring led by Phan Sao Nam caused a significant shock in the Vietnamese law enforcement community. According to the investigation, this case involved successful entrepreneurs and received protection from high-ranking leaders in the Vietnamese police force. Among the key figures in this case is Nguyen Van Duong, one of the masterminds behind the billion-dollar gambling operation linked to Phan Sao Nam.
After establishing the CNC Company with the support of two police generals, Phan Van Vinh and Nguyen Thanh Hoa, Duong facilitated its operations. In 2015, Duong accepted Phan Sao Nam’s proposal to release the RikVip online card game, which served as a platform for illegal gambling activities.
Once the contract was signed, Duong instructed his team to register domains, establish trademarks, and set up payment gateways to facilitate the operation and revenue reconciliation of the gambling activities. Through these illicit gambling activities, they accumulated illicit gains amounting to over 1,655 billion dong.
Key Details of the RikVip Billion-Dollar Gambling Case
The RikVip billion-dollar gambling case was uncovered by the police through an internet fraud scheme. After an extensive investigation, law enforcement authorities apprehended 13 individuals involved in illegal gambling. Through the testimonies of these individuals, the investigation expanded, revealing that all the unlawful gambling transactions were conducted through the RikVip online card game platform.
Based on this evidence, the Phu Tho Provincial Police initiated a specialized investigation and identified the individuals behind the RikVip online card game as Nguyen Van Duong and Phan Sao Nam. These two individuals were determined to be the masterminds behind the billion-dollar RikVip gambling case.
In another development, the investigative authorities also established that the billion-dollar RikVip gambling ring had the protection of two high-ranking police leaders, Phan Van Vinh and Nguyen Thanh Hoa. Although they held positions as directors of C50, they not only failed to prevent the illegal activities but also provided assistance and protection.
According to the investigation, Nguyen Van Duong’s CNC Company was chosen by C50 as a front company responsible for obtaining operating licenses for the online gaming system. During the license application process, Phan Van Vinh and Nguyen Thanh Hoa submitted additional requests to the Ministry of Information and Communications for support in approving this game.
