RM 1,500 from Genting – thanks!

rebate

I never knew my Genting WorldCard actually holds a cash equivalent that can be cashed out. I lost mine and headed to the casino to replace my WorldCard and managed to redeem 50 Genting Points for RM 50. I decided to try my luck at the Baccarat table…

chips

…and managed to win RM 1,500 thanks to a Player dragon. It was a cold table when I started with my RM 3,000 buy-in and it was packed when I left after RM 4,500 in chips. I was up RM 2,000 for a while before going down to RM 1,000 so I decided to leave satisfied with my RM 1,500 win.

    • Eh what do you mean? This is the regular RM 500 chips from Casino de Genting (the main casino).

      I think the chips in International Room has a more subdued palette instead of being very glossy, while the main casino and the one in First World Hotel uses the same chips, if I’m not mistaken. :D

  1. That shows one should leave the gambling table when there is a winning, no matter how much the amount is. A little win is better than a big loss. =)

    • Indeed!

      I wish I had learned this very important lesson earlier. I used to chase the win, not content with anything less than RM 5,000 and it led to a couple of disastrous losses – I’ve lost around RM 35,000 – RM 50,000 on at least 3 separate occasions.

      I stopped gambling except during CNY for over a year, this is the first time I’ve stepped foot in a casino in a long time. :)

    • It actually went to paying my rent but I also belanja a friend to Harrods.

      Hey, should meet up for lunch or dinner sometime. :D

    • Well…not really.

      I like Baccarat coz it’s fast and it has the best odds of any table in the casino. I prefer the main casino for Baccarat instead of International Room – the latter slows down the game by having the person with the highest bet (usually me for Player) open the cards.

      It’s traditionally played that way but I prefer a faster game.

      I might also spend a bit of time at Roulette but I’m really not interested in any other table games besides Baccarat. :)

      • HAH! So I gather you’re not a fan of those uncle aunties who open the cards in an over-dramatic PAINFULLY slow way?

        I am quite different from you, I prefer to chill and spend long hours at the casino hence my fancy for Blackjack… which can be really slow when some joker is taking forever to make a decision.

    • Eh then what do you do inside the casino bro? :)

      I don’t spend much time inside – the longest would probably be an hour, betting RM 500 slowly each round, which was what happened this round.

      I’m usually in and out within 15 minutes – I used to put large bets (RM 2,000 minimum) and cash out after winning over RM 5,000 – RM 6,000.

      However, the last time I was there I was in there almost an hour, slowly betting RM 500 and following the trend instead of bucking it. It was quite fun but I would have left if I started losing – somehow I didn’t and if I had bet my usual amount instead of RM 500, I would have won a large amount of money. Oh well. :)

    • Well, my rent is higher than RM 1,500 so it went towards rent (and also a RM 300++ dinner at Harrods) but buying you dinner?

      ANYTIME buddy!

      It’ll be my pleasure Arthur. :D

      I’m coming back to Sibu middle of June, see you then mate! :)

    • Well, for me the biggest takeout from this experience was that I know I can walk away instead of chasing a win and play moderately instead of going all out with the table maximum bet the way I used to.

      I wouldn’t have been content with RM 1,500 in the past, now I’m quite happy coz it kinda paid for rent. :D

    • Heh! Thanks!

      Well, this ain’t very much of a risk since I was already up RM 2,000 and was just playing for fun and to stop it from getting below a RM 1,000 win.

      It basically fluctuated around while I watched this drama unfold between two PRC ladies and a local one.

      I finally left with 1.5k. :D

    • Haha! I actually spent all of it dy.

      My rent costs more than 1.5k. :x

      RM 1,500 is nothing…gotta win 6k at least in the past before I leave to cover costs and grab a beer. Wait, I shall attempt that again. ;)

  2. usually i bet roulette 30 numbers , per round around rm3000.
    just win 1 round or 2 rounds maximum , then out.
    winning 1000-2000 each day

    • Bro, I read your comment three times and I could find nothing wrong with it.

      It’s very good odds, very high percentage indeed, but if it hits one of the 7 numbers you’re not buying (including the 0 house number) then you’re fucked.

      However, it is a very solid betting strategy and safer than going 16-17 numbers (about half) since the payout 35-1 and it’s a low per number bet (RM 100). Plus, you can cover the house number 0 with this.

      Cons:
      High bankroll required
      Rather go for even money baccarat with 1k win per game
      Roulette is slow

      Pros:
      It’s statistically sound – drives your odds into the upper 80% chance of winning

      It’s dangerous if you don’t have a high enough bankroll to survive at least 3 strikes prob need RM 10,000 at least with this strategy.

      Still an element of risk to it, but that goes without saying.

      Thanks bro, I’ll try it next time I’m at a casino. :)

  3. The 7 numbers excluded are selected carefully. Not randomly, but observed the past spins (choose the cold numbers, which often sleep 50-100 spins easily).
    Starting with RM3000 with your own bankroll is indeed heartbeatening, but once winning with the house money, you will be much calm.

    • Thanks again for the tip mate!

      Got it, I’ll try this one. RM 2,000 – RM 5,000 was my usual bet last time but nowadays, I don’t do that anymore.

      This is definitely worth a try though. :)

  4. I really shouldn’t have done the 50 GP for RM 50 exchange. Genting Points are worth much more than that – you can do points redemption with Star Cruises etc. :x

  5. Oh so it’s Genting Points? When you mentioned 50 World Points, I thought it’s WP instead.
    It’s a totally different point system. GP is worth way more than WP.

    • Hey thanks for catching that Charmaine! :)

      Heh! Yeah, it’s Genting Points, worth 1000x more than World Points if I recall correctly. Wow, you do know a lot about the WorldCard. I just use it in the casino and I recently learned how they actually credit GP to you – it’s based on your gambling turnover rate.

      I’ve always wondered why some people who play way longer than me has less GP than me.
