The Singapore casino Marina Bay Sands, run by billionaire Sheldon Adelson’s Las Vegas Sands Corp., has agreed to settle a lawsuit brought by a former patron, meeting his demand for a $9.1m payment, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Marina Bay Sands also agreed to allow Wang Xi back into the casino as long as he abides by its policies, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the matter is confidential. A spokesman for Marina Bay Sands declined to comment. Wang also declined to comment through his lawyer at Rajah & Tann Singapore.

Wang sued the Singapore casino last year to recover $9.1m that he said was sent to other patrons in 2015 without his approval. The Singapore Police Force also investigated Wang’s complaint, Bloomberg News reported in May.
