A man claims that he saw an imp manipulating a roulette game at the Resorts World Sentosa casino.
He believes that the casino is using imps to cheat patrons at the gambling tables.
The man has since been blacklisted and banned from the casino.
Mr Chen (58, driver) had visited the casino in early November.
He had lost $1,000 on the roulette game when he supposedly saw an imp on the roulette wheel controlling the dice.
Mr Chen claims that he has the ability to see ghostly entities.
He said, "I can see it because I have Yin-yang eyes, so I demanded that the casino return me my money."
He went on to create a commotion and demanded that the casino return his money.
Casino staff eventually took down his particulars and informed him that a supervisor will be contacting him.
When Mr Chen returned to the casino on 28 November, he found himself barred from entry.
Security personnel informed him that he has been blacklisted by the casino.
A spokesperson for the casino explained to reporters that Mr Chen has been listed as "PNG", or "Persona Non Grata". This means that he is no longer welcome at the casino.
The casino maintains that it has the right to put those who infringe on its rules on the PNG list. Such persons can however, appeal to the casino.
Mr Chen is unhappy that he has been blacklisted as he had paid a $2,000 yearly membership fee.
He had received a notification from the casino that he had infringed on its rules, but the notification failed to specify which rules were infringed upon.
"I didn't cheat or owe them any money, why am I blacklisted? I feel this is unfair to me."
He has since called the police to complain about being barred from the casino.
A psychiatrist gave his take on what Mr Chen claims he saw at the casino.
The doctor believes that Mr Chen may have experienced a phenomenon known as microsleep, which resulted in hypnagogic hallucination, causing him to see what he believed was an imp on the roulette wheel.
According to the doctor, microsleep may be caused by lack of sleep and being overly focused on the gambling table.
