No Evidence of Illegal Betting on Alvin Chau

No Evidence of Illegal Betting on Alvin Chau

Macau’s gaming regulator saw no evidence that junket giant Suncity was operating under-the-table multiplier bets.

According to the three veteran Macau’s gaming regulator officials who testified this week in the trial of former Suncity CEO Alvin Chau and 20 other Suncity employees at Macau’s Court of First Instance, it was unaware any such illicit operations occurred anywhere in the gambling hub.

Alvin Chau is accused of illegal gambling, criminal association, fraud, and money laundering. Prosecutors have styled Suncity, formerly the biggest casino junket operator in the world, as “a criminal syndicate.”

Central to the trial is the alleged existence of under-the-table betting operations in Macau, which prosecutors said were run by Suncity for its high-rolling clients. They accuse the company of cheating the Macau government out of just over US$1 billion in gaming revenue by offering clients tax-free multiplier bets.

“I had not seen any of these activities, and nobody had ever reported to me about them when I was on shift,” Alexandre Alves Rodrigues told the court Tuesday.

Rodriguez used to served as Macau’s gaming regulator inspector for over 25 years and was later acting head of the Gaming Inspection Department.
