The fines imposed by Singapore’s Casino Regulatory Authority (CRA) on its two Integrated Casino Resorts surpassed S$500,000 in 2011 for breaching social safeguard requirements.
Marina Bay Sands was fined $357,500 for allowing 10 people to enter its casino without valid entry levels, two people to stay in the casino after their entry levies expired, and 19 people with exclusion orders to enter and remain in its casino. Resorts World Sentosa was fined $140,000 for allowing seven people onto its gaming floor without valid entry levies, six people to stay in the casino after their entry levies expired, and four people with exclusion orders to enter and remain in its casino, as well as two minors who entered the casino.
MBS was left off though for displaying an incorrect winning message on one of its slots when a player should have won a car, but a message awarding her $416,742.11 in winnings flashed up instead. The casino operator offered her a sum of $50,000 and a car worth $258,962 at first, but ultimately gave in and awarded her the full jackpot. CRA said in its statement that it found ‘no deliberate intention by the operator to deceive or deprive the patron of her prize.’
