Banks Open Branches in MBS
Bank of China, Citibank, OCBC Bank and United Overseas Bank will be opening full service branches in Marina Bay Sands (MBS). These banks are to provide financial services to business travellers, tourists and gamblers from the region, but also to local residents. However the banks are not allowed local residents to use their credit cards to buy chips for gambling. Under the Casino Control Act, the casino operators can't extend any form of credit to Singapore residents unless they are premium players, defined as those who must deposit at least One Hundred Thousand Singapore Dollars at the casino. Also No automated teller machines (ATM) are allowed within the casinos either.
