Singapore fines Resorts World casino $424,000: A Singapore regulator says the Resorts World Sentosa
A Singapore regulator says the Resorts World Sentosa casino must pay $424,000 in fines for breaking several casino laws. The Casino Regulatory Authority said Wednesday it fined Resorts World 200,000 Singapore dollars ($161,000) for reimbursing the SG$100 casino entry fee to a group of Singapore journalists who attended the opening of a women-only section. The authority also fined the resort SG$180,000 for not keeping video surveillance footage for the required period and another SG$150,000 for lacking an audible notification of failures in its surveillance system. Resorts World Sentosa, which is owned by Malaysia's Genting Bhd., said in a statement that it cooperated with the authority and has taken steps to prevent the problems occuring again.
