He has been sentenced to two years' jail to be served by way of intensive correction order that began earlier this month. He is also required to perform 250 hours community service work.
Independent Liquor & Gaming Authority chair, Philip Crawford, says The Star self-reported the misconduct and was right to sack Lam as he held a position of responsibility.
"A casino special employee is licensed to supervise and facilitate gaming activities," Mr Crawford said in a statement on Saturday.
"Their role is to help safeguard the integrity of casino operations from criminal influence, serious misconduct or exploitation, and a special degree of trust is placed in them.
"This case demonstrates a clear breach of that trust."
ILGA, on application by NSW Liquor and Gaming, has also cancelled Lam's gaming licence.
His case comes after two Star employees were sacked and convicted after attempting to steal more than $30,000 in gaming chips in March.
