Raps filed vs player, employees involved in bingo scam

MANILA, Philippines – The operator of one of the country's biggest mall-based bingo games has filed estafa charges against a BingoPlus player and three BingoPlus employees after it was discovered that they had conspired with each other to fix a BingoPlus game in order to win a jackpot prize amounting to P3.96 million.

In a statement, BingoPlus said that it was filing charges as it is committed "to maintaining the highest standards of integrity, transparency, and trust within our community."

One of the suspects was the host during the game, while the two others were the game attendants on duty.

According to the complaint, as a result of the "concerted acts" of the three BingoPlus employees, they were able "to successfully implement their devious scheme of helping their cohort, Respondent Rafael, to win the jackpot prize." The player-suspect would later approach the Bingo Plus SM City Cauayan branch manager to complain that he had been "scammed" by the three BingoPlus employees.

After the game-fixing scheme was reported to law enforcement authorities, an investigation by the police revealed that after player-suspect had claimed the jackpot prize, which amounted to P3.16 million after taxes, he split the winnings with the three BingoPlus employees.
