Clouds Gather for Parq Vancouver Amid Cheating Scandal
Casinos across Canada have found themselves stroked by the long arm of money laundering and casino-based crime over the past year. Despite efforts to quell the spread of criminal activity in Canadian establishments, it seems that problems are still rife. One of the latest casinos to fall victim to the surge in casino crime is Vancouver’s Parq Casino.
The three dealers in question were fired last year after it came to light that they had been working with players in a cheating scandal. The dealers were charged by authorities, and sources reveal that the players received casino chips totalling C$37,000, C$40,000, and C$43,000 by the dealers, money they were not entitled to have received.
And this new incident is surely only to make things worse for the casino in terms of profits and attracting interest from players. This also raises questions over how many other establishments have seen staff members and dealers conducting illegal activity like this. There are more than 8,000 casino employees in the province of British Columbia, and if three employees have been cheating, there is a good bet there are more as well.
Parq Vancouver dealers embroiled in this scheme worth more than C$120,000 are unlikely to be the only offenders. It would be interesting to find out how they were rumbled, and how much casino bosses might have known about what was going on. Angela Swan, Parq’s Vice President of Regulatory Affairs and Compliance declined to comment further, and it seems that the casino might be concerned about the negative press involved.
