They will now have to face a lengthy stint in jail after their plans were thwarted and found guilty of an illegal scam.

The court ruled on Monday that both Qamar Hussain and Sajid Rashid were guilty of the offence and were jailed to a 30 month stint in prison. The third colleague Zahidul Haque Khan was able to face a lighter charge that will go for at least 10 months behind bars. According to the prosecutor following this case, the trio was accused of stage-managing and together running a scam for the last one year which had a negative connection with the passing off at least €10 token of casino as €1k tokens on the roulette table at the Casino de Monte-Carlo. This is a property that has been running like any other gaming avenues in Monaco. It is well managed by professionals who are licensed and highly trained in online casino gaming.


Latest news reaching us now indicate that the roulette scammers put in jail were suspected after Richard Monroe, the manager of the casino became so suspicious about the scam at the beginning of the year. This was exactly two months after the trio had been defrauding the casino. Through his profession, Monroe remained so concerned with their betting patters -specially that of Traynor on after he started making big wins even after gambling with small amounts of bets. After investigations, it was revealed that Traynor was able to earn about £2,100 in one of his payout.


The scam continued to basically prey upon the vulnerability at the Casino tables. This is where the tokens are normally issued and they have few face value. According to recent investigations, it was later revealed that the three scammers were sharp enough to slip tokens purchased at €10 to their pockets. There is a surveillance footage recording that was used by the court as supportive evidence to fine them and hold them liable. They are seen playing a smart game to sneak the tokens back into the play after having upped their buy-in value to about €1k. This has been adding a lot of insult to injury. The three suspects have been branded as high-rollers who got the suite at SBM hotel during their great times of exploits.


The manager of the casino was quick to reveal ht the scam was going on from April 2014 and June 2015 before the trio was arrested. Rashid was later found to be an experts and he was the one who was the ringleader using the others to make a life where they hardly had to sweat. He had earlier on served 14 months for other similar escapes within the United Kingdom. He seems to enjoy making quick money without shedding sweat at all. Although they made great money from their fraud, the court came up with a final judgment to inform the trio to simply repay €850k which has been viewed as smaller amount from all of their ill-gotten gains.
