A former dealer with Marina Bay Sands in Singapore was jailed for eight months and 12 weeks for fraud, which involved misappropriating casino chips from the gaming tables.
Jiang Kaiwen, 24, a Singaporean, took $118,000 worth of casino cash chips entrusted to him when he was working at MBS between March 1 and May 3 this year, according to local media reports.
He would pass the misappropriated chips to his friend, Li Zhifan, 24, a student, to help him cash out. On several occasions, Li engaged the help of student Dong Hao, 23, to cash out the misappropriated chips. Both Li and Dong are from China.
Jiang pleaded guilty to 20 charges with 70 others taken into consideration. He was allegedly disgruntled with management.
