On September 9th two croupiers were sentenced to jail for being involved in a cheating case in a Singaporean casino. The case might have begun on June 29th and finished on July 14th.
65 year-old Singaporean Chua Lai Hat is charged of being the responsible of the offence.
He became the accomplice of the two dealers who were telling him the value of the last card at three card poker, a game played versus the casino in which each player makes an initial bet and gets three cards, the players can then choose to fold or to double the stake regarding their cards without seeing the croupier's cards.
The two alleged offenders, 27 year-old Malaysian Choo Hui Yong and 40 year-old Chinese Zhang Zijiu, who were both working at the Singapore Resort World Sentosa could have face up to seven years jail and a $150,000 fine.
The two men were sentenced respectively to four and eight months of jail.
The cheating scheme has been uncovered thanks to a Pit manager, who is the only one to have discovered the fraud while the others employees said they didn't notice anything.
The two croupiers who were receiving 20% of Chua Lai Hat's gains may have earned about $1,000.
Zhang Zijiu and Chua Lai Hat are mentioned to have been involved in similar cases.
No information was given so far about Chua Hai Lat's trial.
