Australian woman stole almost $ 1,000,000 and put everything on a mobile game

A resident of Australia was found guilty of 25 cases of fraud committed over three years. During this time, she pocketed almost $ 1,000,000 and spent all the money on the Heart of Vegas game.

What is known

In the 90s, Rachel Naomi Perry was already convicted of stealing from her employer. The defendant was found to be upset due to her attraction to gambling.

This time, the 49-year-old woman embezzled funds from the veterinary clinic where she served as an accountant. In addition, she took out a loan in her own name in the amount of $ 24,000 and opened a credit card for $ 30,000 in the name of her husband without his knowledge.

In total, Rachel Naomi Perry stole $ 940,000. All the money was spent on the Heart of Vegas mobile slot machine simulator. Interestingly, the game is not an online casino, and you cannot win real money in it.

The lawyer notes that the defendant played unconsciously. Moreover, she activated an automatic game in the application so that money was spent even while she was sleeping. Perry will be sentenced next month.
