Land-based casinos normally have CCTV equipment installed in order to help catch any and every suspicious activity lurking at their casino floors. It is mainly designed to catch player cheats. However, in one incident at the Resorts World Sentosa (RWS), their surveillance cameras helped catch one of their very own employees.
A (now former) dealer from RWS allegedly stole at least S$77,000 worth of $1,000 chips and used the money from it to purchase luxury goods for himself and he also gifted some to his girlfriend.
On October 11 Wednesday, a Chinese national was sentenced in jail for 25 weeks after he conspired with a casino dealer to cheat the Marina Bay Sands (MBS) casino in Singapore of over $24,000.
Wang Zhe, age 26, a Chinese native, had pleaded guilty to 22 charges of acquiring money by means of a fraudulent scheme or practice in a casino game. About 42 other similar charges were also taken into consideration.
It looks like this particular Laotian native accused of cheating off $1.4m from a casino in Singapore also cheated the law -- by dying. The alleged brains behind a scheme to cheat the Marina Bay Sands casino in Singapore out of $1.4 million cannot defend himself properly against his charges because apparently, according to his lawyer, he is already dead.
