""Koh deposited $300,000 into a safety deposit box at Sydney's The Star casino. He deposited another $700,000 the day after that."" Why did he do that? This is the part i don't get in this story. He got caught because of that.

High rollers usually using the safety depo 'cuz they don't want 2 carry huge sums of money around on the floor and this way they could get five-six figure sums house credit as soon as they need it while playing. Just speeds up the money handling.
