In War on the Highland

I went to Genting Highland recently in conjunction with CNY holiday. I watched a live show called Happy Shaolin Legend.

I paid RM58 for a V-VIP seat in the 2nd row because my friend was trying to avoid the 1st row to prevent himself from any body injury during the show. He scared the Shaolin performers were too 'keat' ...

This show is their 1st stop for their recently launched World Tour. In terms of overall rating, I would give 6.5 out of overall 10 even though some of the kungfu stunt is 10 out of 10.

After the show, I went to the casino and played an interesting game called Casino War.

It's like in "war" with this guy, the owner of the casino.

Casino War is a casino card game based on the children’s game of War. The game is arguably one of the most easily understood casino card games.

The cards are ranked in the same way that cards in poker games are ranked, except that aces are always high.

One card is dealt to a dealer and to a player. If the player's card is higher he or she wins the amount equal to his bet, if the dealer's card is higher, the player loses his bet. (Wikipedia)

Basically there are 2 rules in order to have a better chance against the banker / dealer.

1st : Spot the dealer who is in sombre mood, or in darker skin color ( I am not a racist, but it’s based on my observation and experiences)

2nd : Strategize your bet placing sequence in 1-2-2-4-4-8-8 mode. If your initial bet is 10 and you won, place your next bet as 20, if won again, 3rd bet as 20, 4th bet as 40 and so on so forth. Always return to 10 for any lost bet.

With this strategy, I managed to win up to 700 from an initial bet of 25, and it's on my last day of stay at Genting.

The thrill that I get from Casino War is much much higher than watching Star Wars.
