SINGAPORE - He was hoping to win big at the poker table.
And Limbu Aadarsh from Nepal allegedly employed a few underhand tactics while gambling at the Marina Bay Sands (MBS) and Resorts World Sentosa casinos.
He is alleged to have done this between November last year and this month.
Yesterday, Aadarsh, 30, was charged with 13 counts of cheating.
According to the charge sheets, Aadarsh used "a silver powder substance contained in a metal cap that facilitates cheating" at the poker tables.
At other times, the substance was a green powder.
It remains unclear how the substance had helped in his alleged cheating attempts.
On Feb 28, Aadarsh played Black Jack at the MBS casino.
He was accused of possessing a "modified" MBS chip with a $25 value on that occasion.
If found guilty, he can be fined up to $150,000 or jailed up to seven years, or both.
