The second person taken to court on Wednesday for a casino-related offence at Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) was accused of claiming $630 belonging to another gambler.

Alice Lau Qian Xiu, 46, an assistant accountant, is alleged to have misappropriated a 'cashout ticket' bearing that amount in credit from 32-year-old sales executive Soh Wee Chen. (correct)

Lau, who is out on $5,000 bail, is said to have committed the offence at about 11pm on Feb 16 - two days after the casino opened on Chinese New Year. She will appear in court again on March 31. If convicted, she could be jailed up to two years and/or fined up to $10,000.

Her case comes a week after taxi driver Loo Siew Wan was charged with allegedly trying to cheat the casino on Feb 22. The 53-year-old had a placed a bet of two $100 chips on the 'banker' after the result of the game had been declared. He hoped to fool the dealer into believing that he had a winning bet.

The cabby, who is prohibited from entering the casino under an exclusion order, is also accused of stealing his elder brother's Singapore driving licence on Feb 21 and impersonating his brother to get in to gamble the next day.

Meanwhile, two Mongolians are out on police bail for cheating by impersonation, and investigation into five people for trying to sneak into the casino on opening day without each paying the $100 levy is ongoing.
