Sly moment cunning baccarat dealer steals chips worth $11000 from a gaming table at The Star …

A baccarat dealer who palmed $11,000 worth of chips from a Sydney casino has been sacked and convicted along with a worker who repeatedly overpaid a patron.

Richard Quach, who dealt baccarat at The Star Sydney, was caught red-handed on security camera footage in 2020 taking five chips off a gaming table and stuffing them into his sock.

The casino later established he had stolen $11,000 in gaming chips in one week.

He cashed out $6000 of those chips to play gaming machines inside the casino.

Quach was sacked by The Star and sentenced in a NSW court to a two-year community corrections order.

In another incident, Star employee Pharadorn Naweesakorn gave $6000 in chips to a customer in exchange for $1000 in cash.

The Star later established Naweesakorn had made total overpayments of $20,000 to the same patron on four separate occasions.

He was also sacked and sentenced to a two-year community corrections order.

The gaming licences of the two men have been cancelled by the NSW Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority.

‘A casino special employee is a licensee engaged to supervise and facilitate gaming activities,’ ILGA chair Philip Crawford said in a statement.

‘These people help safeguard the integrity of casino operations from criminal influence, serious misconduct or exploitation and a special degree of trust is placed in them.’
