Interesting Place - Portugal

It is illegal to play bingo in Portugal.

( 30 customers at a pub where bingo was being played were arrested by police in Portugal for. These dangerous criminals were questioned by police for four hours and those who were not playing the game were arrested for "observing a crime".

Strict gambling laws in Portugal mean organisers of bingo or raffle nights have to apply for a one-off government licence. So, how many millions were being won and lost at this game? Well, the prizes consisted of biscuits and chocolates.

The police officers took the remaining prizes, the bingo machine, cards and pens. plus a microphone and speakers, as "evidence".

I hope someone counted the biscuits. )
