MANILA, Philippines—The temptation to gamble must have been too hard to resist for a Korean casino junket employee who ended up losing more than P13 million of his company’s money.

Shin Yun-jae, manager for casino junket operator Pink Dolphin, now faces a qualified theft complaint, after he admitted that he stole P13.5 million from his company’s vault.

After taking the money, he went on a gambling spree at a casino in Resorts World Manila in Pasay City.

“Casino junkets” are casino trips or tours organized by an operator for regular gamblers.

Chief Supt. Rodolfo Llorca, Pasay police chief, said that the suspect “abused the trust and confidence [placed in him] by his company….”

After he lost the money through gambling, Shin confessed to his superiors on Tuesday evening.

After conducting its own investigation, Pink Dolphin, represented by complainant Kim Sang-yoon, turned over the suspect to arresting officer SPO1 Fraulz Paduga on Wednesday.—With Alex Austria

      Kumita nga…, pero, at what cost, naman, to the common populace…?

      Many a business have folded due to gambling.
      Many a family have broken, also because of gambling.
      I even had a friend who committed suicide because of gambling debts.

    See what gambling can and will do to people.

    And the stupid government is all support to more gambling dens.

    With the increase in gambling comes the increase in crimes.

    There’s a reason why gambling is only allowed in rich countries. For a destitute nation such as the Philippines to be promoting and proliferating gambling, it’s really difficult to comprehend. But actually, there is just one word that’s all behind this: corruption.
