Three Vancouver based casino dealers from The Parq have been fired for cheating allegations. The revelations made by the British Columbia Attorney General’s office led to this development. The broadcaster submitted a request after which the data was received.
The revealed documents show the players had received $43,000, $37,000 and $40,000 payments as cheating were involved. However, how it took place is still not clear.
Ed Rampone who was the casino investigations director of British Columbia Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch thinks the scam involving dealers and players were on for some time. He added in games like Blackjack performing cheating through extra chips is easier. Typically, the players who get the hints pay the dealers afterwards.
Angela Swan, regulatory affairs and compliance VP of the casino evaded media queries and said the brand was serious about compliance.
The Parq incident however is not an exceptional case! Two years back such cases were found in some other gaming destinations. A player received $7,000 in chips at the Langley’s Cascades Casino. Another incident that made headlines took place at Hard Rock Casino. Almost 88 casino employees were found to be indulging in such unfair activities.
Apart from allegations of collusion, money laundering and cheating, some of the casino workers also faced complaints of theft, assault, intimidation. Some of them were booked for petty theft charges- even for stealing chocolates. Not all such allegations, however prove to be true. River Rock operator and the Great Canadian Gaming Corp refuted claims of money laundering at the venues.
