Eyewitnesses say that every day for the past month, gamblers have been flocking to this makeshift betting booth at the back alley junction of Geylang Lorong 15 and Lorong 17.
They place bets on a dice game commonly known as “Big,Small” in Chinese, where the punter is supposed to guess the total sum of numbers shown on the dices rolled.
A croupier stands at the makeshift 2 metre long table taking bets and rolling the dice, while his partner watches out for any suspicious-looking people in the crowd (i.e undercover cops).
Not by shouting, but through wireless headsets!
Those caught can be fined up to S$50,000 and jailed for 3 years.
And gamblers aren’t spared either.
If caught, they can be fined up to S$5000.
