Two Marina Bay Sands (MBS) dealers were caught helping a roulette gambler win, according to Channel News Asia, by modifying the wheel so that the ball would land on the player’s chosen numbers. After getting to know one of the MBS casino dealers, the player promised to tip her if she could sway the roulette wheel in his favor. This led to an SG$ 2,330 (US$1,700) win from 174 games.
Each time the ball fell on one of the gambler’s three favored numbers, he would pay the dealers SG$70 ($51), with the money handled outside the casino. On a day when he played 22 games and lost them all, he lost the most money, totaling SG$5,000 ($3,646). His highest single-day net profits were SG$ 4,305 ($3,139).
The collaboration was uncovered by MBS’s surveillance division, leading to the late July 2021 filing of a police complaint. In accordance with the Casino Control Act, the gambler and one of the dealers admitted guilty to conspiring to cheat while playing roulette, and they were each given 28 months in prison.
