In recent years, Macau has emerged as the Gambling Capital of the World, surpassing Las Vegas in terms of gambling income. It’s not surprising that a Hong Kong mobster would chose Macau to bet his ill-gotten money.What is astonishing is the amount of money he lost. The criminal is said to have spent HKD 2 billion ($250 million USD) in the casino in just four years.Most of us would be happy to walk away from the casino with our riches, but this thug was not. To get his money back, he intended to kidnap the casino owner.Fortunately, the plot was thwarted, and the mobster was apprehended before he could carry it out. But that simply goes to show that some people would go to any length to win when it comes to gambling.
