SINGAPORE — A former dealer at the Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) casino took at least S$77,000 worth of S$1,000 cash chips, asked a friend to help him cash some of them out, and used the money to buy luxury goods for himself and his girlfriend.

 

His spending spree included a Breitling watch worth almost S$6,000, a pair of Balenciaga shoes and a pouch, and S$400 Chanel earrings. He also bought an Apple iPad mini and an iPhone.

 

On Thursday (June 20), Ding Zhipeng, a Chinese national, was sentenced to nine months and six weeks’ jail and fined S$12,000.

 

The 28-year-old pleaded guilty in the State Courts to one charge of criminal breach of trust, one charge under the Casino Control Act and one charge under the Corruption, Drug Trafficking and Other Serious Crimes (Confiscation of Benefits) Act. Thirteen similar charges were taken into consideration for sentencing.

 

The court heard that Ding had been employed at RWS since July 2017, and looked after casino cash chips kept in the float — that is, trays where the chips were kept — of his assigned gaming tables.

 

He began stealing casino cash chips from the float sometime in May or June 2018, when there were no patrons at his gaming table.

 

His offences were finally discovered on Nov 12, 2018, when a surveillance operator spotted Ding taking S$1,000 cash chips from the float. The operator then called the police.

 

Officers seized 72 chips and S$3,000 in cash from Ding’s rental room when they searched it later that evening. He surrendered another two chips that he had kept inside his pants when he was arrested.

 

Deputy Public Prosecutor Tay Jia En noted that Ding had misappropriated a large amount over an extended period of time.

 

He showed premeditation by stealing the chips when his supervisor was not looking, the prosecutor added, and he used a friend to cash out the chips as he would attract suspicion by doing it himself.

 

In mitigation, Ding’s lawyer John Koh told the court that his client was stressed and “resorted to improper channels to make extra money”, while working long hours to make money for his family back in China.

 

Most of the money was eventually recovered as well, Mr Koh added.

If I am not mistaken, the items are seized, then auctioned off to recover some if not all of the money.

This is so strange. Isn't any reconciliation done at the start and end of every shift, or are the funds and chips handled everyday so large, that RWS effectively has no handle over such things until something is picked up by the security cameras?

for cash chips how to reconcile in the table?

for example people won $2000 cash chips and then move to other table

even people dont cash out their chips on the same night when they leave the casino

cash chips is as good as cash

the best “scam” i ever heard is pakat with friend in roulette table

when friend number come out ... slot in a $100 with the color chips and payout

that’s why during payout .... every single chip must be laid out during payout
