Roulette Scam Discovered at Cyprus’ First Casino, Police Arrest Dealer

Police arrest dealer at Cyprus’ first casino after CCTV footage showed roulette tampering incidents that resulted in a player winning €5,800

Police in the Cypriot city of Limassol have arrested a live dealer working at the city’s C2 casino on suspicion that he has tampered with the roulette wheel to help a player defraud the casino out of €5,800, local news outlets report.

The casino employee was arrested by police last night. Police officers are looking for a second suspect, the player who collected €5,800 from the casino after being assisted by the detained dealer.

Police were alerted about the suspected conspiracy and fraud at the casino floor by the manager of security at the facility. Upon examination of CCTV footage, security staff members detected 18 different incidents of tampering the roulette wheel in the period between February 6 and March 2. As a result, a customer of the casino amassed €5,800 in winnings.

News about the suspected fraud at the gaming facility arrived as the property’s parent company, Hong Kong-listed casino giant Melco Resorts & Entertainment, is gearing up preparations to launch two more satellite casinos in Cyprus and to break ground on its main integrated resort in Limassol.

The C2 casino currently operational in Limassol is only a temporary facility that will remain open until the larger resort with the main casino floor launch in 2021. Melco debuted the facility last June.

The casino and hotel company and its local partner – Cyprus Phassouri (Zakaki) Ltd. – launched two satellite casinos – one in the Cypriot capital, Nicosia, and the other at Larnaca International Airport – by the end of 2018. As mentioned above, Melco will launch two more facilities of this type later this year – one in Ayia Napa and one in Paphos.

Construction of the Main Resort Expected to Begin Soon

News emerged last month that Melco has picked the preferred contractors for the development of its first integrated resort outside Asia. Greek construction companies GEK Terna and J&P Avax were announced as the winning bidders for the right to build the property that will be the first of its kind in Europe.

Melco has decided to bring its popular City of Dreams resort brand to Europe, naming its new resort City of Dreams Mediterranean. As the company has selected the preferred contractor, it is now almost ready to break ground on the property. Construction is expected to commence in April, according to reports by local media. The resort is expected to open doors in 2021, if no major obstructions occur.

City of Dreams Mediterranean will feature a casino with Las Vegas-style gaming options, a luxury hotel, retail space, convention facilities, and diverse food and beverage options. Melco initially planned to invest €550 million into its first European resort, but later on said that the final investment would exceed that amount.
