Croupier Exacts Revenge By Cheating Casino Out Of $138,000

A croupier working at the Marina Bay Sands (MBS) casino in Singapore became unhappy with his employer and opted to exact his revenge - by cheating it of over $138,000. However, as with all cheats, you can never really get away with it as the casino will eventually find out.

Jiang Kaiwen, age 24, who started working on September last year at the MBS casino as a dealer of Blackjack, Baccarat and Sic Bo, pleaded guilty to 20 charges of criminal breach of trust and cheating of play, along with 70 more charges being considered for sentencing. His crimes were exposed right after the MBS surveillance team conducted their routine audit checks and saw him cheating via the security footage.

Within a month, he first snuck casino chips worth $118,000. Then, he also connived with two friends to play at the casino, paying them even when they lost their bets.

Why He Did It
Unlike the usual reason of simple greed that we usually see on other cases of cheating casino dealers, Jiang had another reason, albeit it's also rather simple - he said he became unhappy at the casino management over two occurrences which left him feeling resentful and underappreciated.

On two occasions, Jiang had been abused verbally by customers, and to add insult to injury, the management sided with the customers.

He decided to exact his revenge by means of misappropriating casino chips from the gaming tables. Between April 7 and May 3 this year, he successfully snuck out casino chips 47 times out of the premises by concealing them in his shoes, or in Bermuda shorts he wore under his work pants. He would then give the stolen chips to his Chinese friend Li Zhifan, age 24, who would proceed to cash out the chips. Another Chinese friend, Dong Hao, age 22, was also involved.

When his two Chinese friends were playing there, Jiang would also tend to overpay them when they were changing chips or when they won. Even if they lost, he would still pay them.

The three took away $20,275 worth of casino chips and would split the money at the MBS toilets.
On May 9 this year, upon his return from a holiday in Vietnam, Jiang was arrested - only a day after a MBS casino security officer filed a police report. Police escorted him to his home, where he surrendered the $118,000 he stole. He and his two accomplices (whose court cases are still pending) gave back the remaining $20,275 to MBS casino.

His Punishment
On September 3, Deputy Public Prosecutor Thiam Jia Min calls for Jiang to be jailed for a period of 13 up to 16 months. Jiang's defense lawyer said that his client was remorseful, and that he only did those things out of naivety and in a momentary lapse of judgment. Jiang is expected to be sentenced on October 3, 2016.

This is a story right out of a film. This guy might have got away with it but is seems that he got a bit too greedy and now he is going to have to spend some time in jail. I am curious to see how long he gets

We see more often lately fraud cases in casinos.
Every casino is full with cameras. What are they thinking in the first place.
Overpaying the ones working with him was one of he things he did, but getting out of the casino
the chips by himself? How hard was this to spot.

ah well, it doesn't matter how good of a cheat you are, in the end of the day no one, i repeat no one cheats the ultimate cheaters- the casino! pointless even to try, since once your failed attempts do come into the spotlight- you risk of your balls being snapped of and your legged stuffed into your anus... oh and the usual stuff like prison and fines.

The absolute best thing about this story, is not the fact that this guy was allegedly abused by customers and not supported by his employers, but the absolutely fabulous journalistic expertise of using the word "snuck". This is a word that does not really exist though is in use by millions of pre school children (and billions of adult Americans) Me thinks they should have used the word "sneaked".

Singapore's gross domestic product per person well exceeds $60,000. Although $138,000 is a good chunk of (extra) money, I don't think it was worth the risk of getting caught.
I have been wanting to go to Singapore for a long time. Singapore is one of the few exotic destinations I would like to visit in my lifetime.

Goood, for once it's not the casino that's scamming/cheating people out of their money.... Big Smile
But yeah like Pochui pointed out, trying to cheat people that are professionnal cheaters is a bit suicidal. I bet they broke his knees and some fingers before they brought him to the police too, casino mafia style Blink These guys are scary and usually italian...
