Hong Kong high roller sues Marina Bay Sands

Hong Kong businessman Cheung Che-kin is suing Las Vegas Sands’ Marina Bay Sands for damages alleging he lost money after the casino stopped him gambling using pooled chips, according to media reports.

Cheung claims the Singapore casino prevented him from taking over a baccarat game with a friend. MBS has denied the claims and launched a counter suit to retrieve $11.5 million in credit it gave to the businessman to gamble.

The incident dates back to Dec. 2012. Cheung, who was playing in a VIP room, alleges that the casino knew he would be playing from a combined pool and that this was ok.

But when his friend said he felt unwell and Cheung attempted to take over playing from the combined chips, he was refused permission.
