Galaxy doesn’t confirm if its Cotai property was the target of fake chip scam


Gaming operator Galaxy Entertainment Group Ltd. did not confirm if a recent fake casino chips scam affected its Cotai property, after footage from local news broadcaster TDM showed apprehended fake chips with the name of Galaxy Macau printed on them.
According to the PJ, two Mainlanders were arrested on July 22 after having been found to have defrauded a casino in Cotai for around HKD320,000 (US$40,964) by using fake casino chips valued at HKD10,000.
The two arrested men were found in possession of HKD820,000 in fake chips, with the PJ admitting another accomplice is still being chased.
The PJ also informed that since July 17 the same casino in Cotai had been targeted seven times by a group using the same method.
In a response to a Business Daily inquiry Galaxy Entertainment states that “as this incident is under police investigation, we have no further information to provide at this moment”.
