Four housewives from Jakarta are facing the prospects of five years’ jail after they were caught playing an Indonesian version of poker on Wednesday.

Adj. Comr. Bungin, head detective with Pademangan Police in Mangga Dua, North Jakarta, confirmed that the housewives, ranging in age from 25 to 54, had been playing Joker Karo.

Bungin said a total of Rp 25,000 ($2.80) had been seized during the raid behind the Bintang Mas train station.

He said local residents had been uneasy with the women, who “often gambled.”

The group said they only played the game to pass the time.

They have been charged with Article 303 of the Criminal Code that carries sanctions of five years in jail for gambling.

Police have previously used the law to charge 10 children caught playing a card game at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport on the outskirts of the capital.
