Junket told to repay gambler HK$6m in lost chips

Junket operator Dore Entertainment was ordered by Macau’s Court of First Instance to repay a gambler HK$6 million ($764,400)  in lost gaming chips, plus interest.

The same court absolved Wynn Resorts of responsibility in the case, according to local media reports.

In September 2015, a former cage manager allegedly stole more than HK$100 million, using her position in a VIP room in Wynn Macau to illegally pool deposit capital.

The report said four people had pressed charges against the junket and Wynn demanding the repayment of some $64 million deposited, either in the VIP room or in gaming chips.

The court ruled that three of the players had failed to prove they had deposited funds, while the fourth provided a receipt.

The whereabouts of the cage manager is unknown, but the court decided that Dore bore responsibility for the actions of its employee.
