Former Resorts World Sentosa dealer gets jail for casino chip scam


A former dealer at Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore has received a 20-month and 22 weeks jail sentence for stealing $100,000 worth of chips in June and July last year.

The Malaysian man, named as Yeoh Zhong Cheng, took the chips to pay off debts to unlicensed money lenders, according to the Straits Times.

He then pulled in accomplices, including his younger brother, to help him cash out the chips. He pleaded guilty in a court hearing on Monday.

According to the report, Yeoh began working for the Singapore-based IR in 2017. He began skimming chips worth $1,000 off a covered tray on the table and putting them into his shirt. 

According to court documents, the dealer took at least 124 chips, worth a total of $124,000, on 28 occasions between June and July last year.
