The game of Rock, Paper, Scissors has been around for decades, and it has been a valuable tool in settling disputes around the world. When in doubt of an outcome, Rock, Paper, Scissors was always there to keep friends from getting into a squabble.

On Friday, the Metropolitan Police Department announced that three men have been arrested in conjunction with running illegal online gambling websites. One of the sites was a place for bettors to try their luck on Rock, Paper, Scissors.

Almost 30,000 people used the sites to gamble, according to authorities. The department also confirmed that some of the people who gambled on the sites were minors. The arrests are the first in the country in relation to mobile device gambling.

The sites in question were running the janken(Rock, Paper, Scissors)game, but were not paying out much of their revenue in customer winnings. Land-based casinos are bound by tough laws that make casinos pay a certain amount of their winnings to customers. Out of the 130 million yen the illegal sites took in, they only paid out 1.43 million yen to winners.

In order to collect on the Rock, Paper, Scissors game, gamblers had to string together a run of victories. If they won three times in a row, they received 1,000 yen, and five wins in a row would net the bettor 10,000 yen. The odds of winning five games in a row are less than one percent.

Tomoyuki Miyamoto was identified as the operator of the illegal sites, and he was arrested along with two other men. Nine customers were also cited in the arrests, and prosecutors will decide whether or not to charge them with illegal gambling at a later date.
