Croupier and High Rollers Arrested for Casino Fraud

Tags: casino fruad, Genevieve Amichand, high roller, Roshan Harilall, South Africa, Sunisha Harry.
Posted on Friday, December 28, 2018 by "T".

A croupier working at the Sibaya Casino in South Africa was found to be allegedly rigging the roulette tables and conspiring with two casino players. In the scam they were able to steal around R500,000 (approx. US$36,000).

Last week, the now ex-croupier Genevieve Amichand and her two co-conspirators, brothers Roshan and Rakesh Harilall, appeared in the Verulam Magistrate's Court after they were arrested due to the alleged thefts in February and December 2016. The accused individuals were represented by attorney Chris Gounden.

Roshan Harilall, a diamond cardholder, typically spends around R5 million annually at the casino.

Meanwhile, his brother Rakesh, a gold cardholder, must spend around R3.5 to R4 million annually just to keep his status.

All three perpetrators were at first charged with R3.7 million fraud when they were arrested in 2017. However, it was not placed on the court roll that time. In June 2018, the theft and fraud charges were reinstated again.

Sunisha Harry, Rakesh Harilall's wife, was also arrested in June but was released after paying the R1000 bail.

The three were released on a warning but then were summoned to court. This time, the fraud amount was lowered to R487,000 from the original R3.7 million.

The State alleges the croupier Amichand had intentionally spun the wheel on the roulette table quite slowly, thus resulting in an error, but instead of claiming it as an error and must re-spin, she allegedly declared the error number as a win.

All four individuals are believed to have worked together. They have pleaded not guilty.

The case is still ongoing.

Quite strange accusation. "Spun the wheel slowly" Should be dealt with by the person working the floor. But even if the croupier is convicted for these rather vague charges, how are they going to proof the involvement of the players? Looks like a dud to me.

In this news exist more accurate details.
It's not weird or strange, but it's exactly what he says here.
The casino gave up a considerable part of the damage and this means that they have researched better.
We can not omit this thing.
It was R3.7 million and now the damage is R487,000.
Video samples will elucidate this case and if the croupier and ,,his friends'' are guilty, they will pay.

I cant really understand the "error" they are talking about form the slow spin.
Probably there is a minimum speed, that the wheel must be having,
in order for the whole thing to be considered valid.
And again, they were expecting to get away with this?
Why they are having so many cameras in the casinos, in the first place? Smile

How many times we did read the past year about such occurrences in casinos ?
Thye are and will be one of the most secured areas, with all that personnel and cameras,
and yet people will still try to commit a crime.
Lets see how many incidents will happen this year, and which one will be the most weird one Smile

As long as people have the chance to steal money, they will try this.
If monthly wages are enough for all the people in the world, then the percentage of thieves, will decrease very much.
Unfortunately in this world thieves and mafia from different countries earn the most money.
That's why there are thieves everywhere, including casinos where there are nice sums of money to steal. Smile

You could also say, that there are are the clever ones and the dumb ones.
And the second ones are the kind trying to steal from a casino.
People getting caught all the time today, from crime scenes that there is not
a single camera around, and they are trying to steal in a casino, where your every move is
tracked and recorded Smile

That is the challenge. Making the perfect coup, and cheating the casinos out of their money, while watched by a dozend or so surveillance cameras. But maybe the method has to be just a bit more sophisticated, then the one applied here.
 Mober1/7/2019 8:20:32 PM GMT
It i s not something that happens in the spot.
Since the croupier is in it, they must had organized it beforehand.
But it looks like they didnt do a good job after all.
I bet that the specific croupier wont work in a casino again Smile
