A 63-year-old Frenchman has been sentenced to nine months in jail after being extradited from Germany for cheating a Singapore casino two years ago, a report says.
Reynald Georges Victor Lasnel pleaded guilty on Monday to cheating the then newly opened Resorts World Sentosa at roulette tables in connivance with two other Europeans who are still at large.
The trio managed to flee Singapore while out on bail following their arrest but Lasnel was caught at Frankfurt airport in January with the help of German officials and the global law enforcement group Interpol.
The Singapore police confirmed on Tuesday that Lasnel was extradited to the city-state on September 11 after being held in a German jail after his arrest.
Court officials could not be reached for further information on the case.
The Straits Times newspaper said Lasnel, another Frenchman and a Spaniard conspired to distract casino staff and slip in bets when the roulette ball was about to land on the winning numbers.
They won a total of Sg$13,400 ($A10,930) in April 2010 but were caught after another patron tipped off casino staff.
At his hearing on Monday, Lasnel pleaded for leniency, calling himself a "weak, tired and sick old man" with two teenage daughters to support but he was sentenced to nine months in jail, the newspaper said.
He had already spent eight months in a German prison while awaiting extradition but Singapore prosecutors urged the period not be taken into account in the sentence for cheating, the report added.
