This story revolves around a Singaporean businessman who bears the name of Wong Yew Choy. The latter is in fact in full arm wrestling with the Star Gold Casino which is located near Brisbane in Australia. It must be said that this player contracted what can easily be described as colossal debt since it amounts to $ 30.6 million.
An opportunity to see that this is really a VIP customer since in addition he contracted it in just one week, making sure to block his payment check. But it is not a question here of avarice or bad faith, knowing that the reason for this refusal lies in the fact that the croupiers would have made too many errors during its parts and that they would also have distorted the result of certain blows.
A debt of $ 30.6 million
The number is staggering and this debt of $ 30.6 million is certainly one of the largest ever contracted by this casino. A casino that has not hesitated for a minute, and we can easily understand it, to take legal action against its player to simply recover his money.
But is what is criticized against the gaming establishment really founded? Only the future and the result of an investigation can define it for us. In the meantime, the whole world of gaming and the specialized press like ours must base its information on this subject on the words of this rich businessman for whom the errors supposedly made by the casino team seem nevertheless arrange it so well …
Assumed errors or bad faith?
According to this client, his losses are not to be reimbursed. Indeed, it relies on a really serious accusatory defense; explaining that many errors were made during his games by the croupiers of the Star Gold Casino… It is therefore quite naturally and without really a big surprise that Mr. Choy expressed the desire to leave the casino prematurely because of these errors some days after his arrival.
But where everything takes its importance in the case is that the casino itself admitted the faults with which it is accused. The management will even offer him even more credits and will then send him a handwritten letter apologizing for the errors. A letter in which he is promised that this will not happen again. But, if the player has accepted the apology and continues to play, he will not let himself be defeated and will warn that he will not pay if the errors start again later …
You probably guessed it already: the errors continued in all likelihood and Mr Choy therefore returned to Singapore. Once there, he will warn his bank by ordering him not to honor the check he had just left at the casino; deeming according to him to be in perfect right not to pay his gambling debts, based on the agreement made during negotiations with the Star Gold Casino. For its part, the casino decided to file a complaint while Mr Choy’s lawyer said for his part that his client was ready to justify his decision not to pay the debts in court and in court.
