A London casino dealer stabbed

By Sophie Couard

Last July, Kien Ngyun stabbed a 48-year-old dealer, who narrowly missed being killed.

Working in a casino can be dangerous work. Last December, a 65-year-old player was sentenced to life imprisonment without probation for murdering a dealer. In today's news, we’re reporting on a similar attack on a dealer, using a knife, at a London casino.

After an argument with casino staff

The incident occurred in July of last year. 35-year-old Kien Ngyun argued with Empire staff at Leicester Square in London before leaving. A few minutes later, he returned and attacked a 48-year-old dealer with a knife. The dealer barely escaped with his life. The attacker did not stop and in his crazed state tried to attack other employees. Three men from the security staff and four from reception managed to force him into a corner with chairs until the police arrived.

Dealer

Sentenced to an indefinite hospital stay

The perpetrator has now been sentenced to indefinite hospital stay.

In the course of the police investigation, evidence was found in which the attacker wrote that all employees of the casinos must die because they would steal people's money, and he would take over the casino and donate the money to charity. Kien Ngyun pleaded guilty in Southwark Crown Court and sentenced to an indefinite stay at a mental hospital under the Mental Health Act of that country. Fortunately, the dealer is now recovering at home.

Of course, this extreme situation cannot happen in an online casino. Players can always enjoy a variety of live games in a secure environment in casinos such as Lucky31 and DublinBet.
