A clean 10k in chips. =D
I went up to the Highlands of Sin on Saturday since I was bored and I wanted to see if the winning streak still applies. *pretends* I put RM 3,000 on Player for 3 rounds. Motherfucker, it tied two times but I stuck with it and didn’t withdraw and won in the 3rd round with a natural 9. Sweet.
(for the uninitiated, you don’t lose money if it’s a tie on Baccarat)
I lost RM 100 on Player double though. RM 3,000 on a single bet is a grey area, sometimes they allow it, sometimes they don’t (since technically one person is supposed to bet max RM 2,000 per round).
I left the table and put RM 100 on the number 4 in Roulette and it came out as…3. >.<
I decided to call it a day and went to the cashier. Unfortunately, there’s this Baccarat table just blocking my way to the cashier and I put down my spare RM 200 on Player. I lost that bet and wanted to go but something just told me to go again.
Thus, I put a RM 1,000 bet on Player and guess what? Natural fucking 9. =D
I won RM 3,600 in total and in combination with my RM 6,400 buy in that comes out to a neat and even RM 10,000 cheque.
I’m glad I didn’t move tables when I went in. I went to a cold table (as in there’s no one there) and started exchanging my cash for chips before people started thronging in. I wanted to leave since it takes a long time for everyone to start up but I was adviced not to – and a good thing too. I had RM 3,100 riding on that – I always take up the spot 6 and 7 and after the gnarly two times in a row draw, I finally won RM 3,000. Heh!
One last thing, I finally managed to clear up the winning vs non-winning cheque issue – if you get a winning cheque you will NOT get the full amount since Genting will tax you. However if you get a non-winning cheque it’s nice and easy, you get everything. I also bought two jeans and shirts and minus all expenses I think it comes up to about a RM 2,500 nett win. Mind you though, my calculations are terribly flawed and includes stuff like buying attire. ;)
Anyway, those of you who have been following me on Twitter would know about my mom’s battle with cancer. It’s not something I want to talk about now, but will post about it soon k? I’ll be flying to NZ to be with her before her operation. Thanks for all the mentions, DMs, SMS, emails and IM well wishes – much appreciated.
