According to information from Korean news collected by GGRAcia’s Korean correspondent, the allegations include casino cheating, cheating, and misappropriation.
The local prosecutor’s office and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, which oversees the domestic casino sector, confirmed the ongoing investigation into Daegu casinos to GGRAs in early May, respectively.
Two of the defendants were described as high-ranking bosses at the time of the criminal charges. Also accused of wrongdoing were two executives at the time, four employed as salespeople, and four working as casino dealers. All 12 are accused of casino misconduct.
Media reports did not reveal the names of the individuals allegedly involved. They are not currently in custody, according to reports.
According to local media, casino dealers bought 4.5 billion won from two Chinese listed as Hong Kongers in a local media outlet, who were found to have baccarat at the venue. The scam reportedly occurred in September 2017, when dealers “falsely mixed” cards and “switched cards.”
In July 2017, there was a fraud case in which 54 million won was deceived by a Japanese player using the same method.
The two senior bosses at the time are also accused of borrowing 9.1 billion won from a Hong Kong financial company and lending 6.45 billion won to one of the casino executives without collateral from the recipient, and the act marked as breach of trust reportedly occurred in 2017.
Some of the presidents at the time are suspected of misappropriating 950 million won in company funds for “discretionary consumption.”
The prosecution believes that the two bosses and two executives provided 230 million won worth of services to induce suspected dealers to participate in player fraud, and such inducement is classified as a breach of trust in Korea.
