KELOWNA - Two men are facing charges related to cheating at a Kelowna casino.

A dealer and gambler have been charged after an investigation into collusion allegations at the Lake City Casino in Kelowna in November. According to a police release the gambler was seen at the dealer’s roulette and poker tables on three days.

The investigation concluded with evidence the pair were running a plan called ‘Cheat at Play,’ which is illegal.

Mingzhe Xu, a 25-year-old Kamloops man, now faces two counts of intent to defraud a casino. Yun Long Yang, a 21-year-old Kelowna man, faces one count of attempting to defraud a casino and has lost his gaming worker registration.

They are expected in Kelowna Provincial Court on May 4, 2017.
