Singapore Court Rules Against Australian CasinoTia Winter | 31 October 2019
Most global world banks have voiced their utter disapproval of the practice and the majority of countries and bank groups now no longer allow players to play games online by making use of credit card payments. The reason for this is that people lose all perspective about the concept of money when they are dealing with funds not actually belonging to them but that they are still liable to pay back.
Did Not Want The Credit
The businessman had supposedly ripped through all of the credit provided to him by the Gold Coast operator; credit he claims he never even applied for; playing VIP table games at The Star Gold Coast Casino.
He however claims that the reason behind his refusal to settle his debt is that he was informed by a senior casino executive that due to certain mistakes made by a specific Baccarat dealer, he (the high roller) would not be required to square off with any of the debt racked up at Baccarat tables during the period leading up to July 29, 2018.
Operator Will Appeal Order
The high roller furthermore claims to have been informed by the same casino executive that if a repeat of such an incident were to occur in future, then the same logic would apply, in that he (Wong) would not be liable for payment. The businessman claims that exactly such an event occurred in the vicinity of August 1st, after which he had immediately stopped playing.
The Singapore International Commercial Court did not only dismiss the operator’s application for the recovery of the money owed to it by Wong but has allegedly also ordered that the Star casino pay the wasted legal costs of Wong. The operator has stated its intention to appeal against the outcome and order of cost.
