    Việt Nam Casino not paying woman, story here. Interesting to see the result.

    As some of you know I have lived in In Việt Nam for the last 9 years. i am integrated into the society and culture as I speak the language. There are casinos all over the country. However they are for foreigners only. Vietnamese are not even allowed to walk in there, unless they are the employees of course. A few years ago in one of the nicest beaches in the country on an island called Phú Quốc they opened a casino where Vietnamese can gamble. Vietnamese people love to gamble they just do it in a different way but now are able to go here. It is very nice and the island is amazing, if you ever come to Việt Nam it is amazing if you like white sand and crystal clear blue water.The beaches here are better than anything America has to offer. There is a story that happened last year but the story is getting a lot of publicity here. I know some people in Interpol and other highly connected government people here. I have talked with them about this. They are pretty confident that the lady won't see any more of her winnings. It is pretty crazy if she doesn't get what she won. They paid her the 400k and she probably went back to Italy and they figured screw her, there is nothing she can do. It is the truth, there isn't much she can do, it will be very interesting to see how this plays out. If anyone is interested in the story and the area, I have provided links below. If anyone has any questions about gambling, travel, living here, just ask me. I consider myself an expert about the life in Việt Nam as a foreigner.

    Phú Quốc also has the longest cable car in the world, with the length of 8 km, the Phu Quoc cable car route is the longest non-stop three-way cable car in the world recorded by the Guinness Book of World Records.

    Italian woman sues Vietnamese casino for not paying out $1.9 mln winnings - VnExpress International

    An Italian woman has sued a casino in Kien Giang's Phu Quoc Island for not paying her $2.4 million winnings in full.

    If I could place I bet, I would bet she doesn't see a penny more. I am really curious to see how it plays out.

    You'd think tourist authorities would put pressure on the casino.

    A good media campaign is probably her best hope by the sounds.

    it happened before when a dude who was from US won $55 millions from the slot machine back in the 2000s. He's never gotten his money. Source: I lived there during that time.

    It's still under lawsuit I believe. But the guy who won is too old, he might give up soon. This was back to the day when Casino only allow to play within the hotels in district 1, Saigon.

    That went completely “over” your head. I don’t mean the tone of the people talking. The tone of the word. Vietnamese is a tonal language. I need a tone to tell you the word.

    Nobody would understand what you wrote. It’s “ chúc may mắn ”. You have to use the tones.
