The CRA is responsible for ensuring that the management and operation of the casinos in Singapore remains free from criminal influence or exploitation. It also ensures that gaming in a casino is conducted honestly, and that casinos do not cause harm to minors, vulnerable persons and society at large.
In February 2012, the CRA imposed fines of SGD$385,000 onto casinos Marina Bay Sands and Resorts World Sentosa for lapses in their security and screening. This resulted from 44 cases of people who managed to enter or remain in the gambling halls despite being disallowed into the casinos. These included 19 cases where Singaporeans and permanent residents were allowed in without paying for the $100 entry levy; five cases where gamblers overstayed the tenure of their entry levies, seven where people on exclusion orders were allowed to enter and 13 cases where minors were allowed in.
