Police held a press conference on Tuesday inside a covert casino discovered in the Robinson Apartment complex on Jalan Jembatan Dua in Penjaringan, North Jakarta, over the weekend.

At least 91 of the 133 people arrested during raid have been declared suspects. They face up to 10 years' imprisonment under Indonesia's Criminal Code, which outlaws gambling.

According to the suspects, the owners of the illegal establishment raked in as much as Rp 700 million ($49,400) per day in the three days it operated.
