High-roller scams Crown out of $32 million
A foreign high roller has been linked to a sting that's netted 32 million dollars from Crown Casino.
The Herald Sun reports Crown security cameras had been monitoring a foreign high roller, exposing a complex system of cheating.
A Crown staff member has also been sacked amid claims the VIP client didn't act alone in the scheme.
Herald Sun Crime Reporter Mark Butler joined Ross and John and explained the con is something out of the film Ocean's 11.
"Someone has been able able to get into the security system remotely and we're told advise the player about what other cards the other players are holding, and he's cleaned up to the tune of 32 million.
"All I had say is the VIP services manager was given his marching orders at the same time Crown officials grabbed this fella from his villa in Crown towers and told him not to come back."
Butler said Crown is confident they'll be able to recoup at least some of the 32 million dollars.
It's the biggest case of alleged fraud in the casino's 19 year history and a US casino fraud expert says it's among the biggest scams he's heard of.
"Casinos across the world need to take note," he said.
