Five Filipinos, five males and one female, have been released on police bail one day after being arrested on May 23 for illegal gambling in North Point.

A mainland Chinese man with a two-way permit who was arrested along with the Filipinos was also released on May 24 following an initial investigation.
A spokesman from the Police Public Relations Bureau said those arrested were instructed to report again to the police late next month.

The six, aged from 30 to 53, were found playing on arcade machines when a special duty unit at the Eastern Police District raided a flat on Bank Tower at 351 King’s Road at 7pm on Thursday.
Also arrested was a 30-year-old Hong Kong man for allegedly operating the illegal gambling establishment.

The officers acted after receiving tips-off and conducting a thorough surveillance.
A Filipino male and female who could not provide any identity documents during the raid were also booked for failing to show their Hong Kong identity cards, the spokesman said.
Local reports said two fishing machines and about $2,500 in cash, a card reader machine and a pack of gaming cards were seized from the gambling den.
Bank Tower, where the illegal gambling den was located, was the same building where seven Filipinos, including three women - and three local Chinese - were arrested on Dec 7 last year for illegal gambling.
The seven Filipinos and three local Chinese were fined $500 each in Eastern Court on Mar 12 after they pleaded guilty to illegal gambling.
