    Default To seek their luck at the new Casino

    1. Stealing after losing all your money

    2. Getting someone into a fight

    3. Killing someone on the pretext of self-defence

    All these can happen at the the height of anger
    after losing all your hard earn or even leisure money.

    The consequence from future casualty is unthinkable
    and there isn't any way to stop such crimes from people
    who feel they want to match their "luck" at the new casino!

    What are your ideas and suggestions?

    1. Refund the locals the $100 once they get out from the casino

    2 & 3 can happen anywhere else

    There is a way to find out the financial status of whoever
    is entering the Casino especially the locals.

    Perhaps once they lose more than 5k or 10K they have
    to leave and get back their $100 entrance fee.

    But if they are financially free with more than 5 to 10
    million, they can stay till they lost more than a million
    dollar.

    What do you think?

    Standard "social risk assessment", the government is willing to accept "collateral damages" for the greater economic benefits.

    Since serial gamblers are going to lose their money one way or another (gambling ships, genting, online etc. etc.) might as well entice them to give their cash away locally.

    What happens to that SGD 100? Will it be used to treat gambling addicts? Or given to the poor?

    Overtime they will be given as bonus handouts to high level civil servants and government officials who probably burned their hands in the stock market not too long ago or even in the future.

    The $100 collected from Singaporeans / PR will be donated to Singapore Totalisator Board, now known as the Tote Board.

    "Standard Operating Procedure (SOP)" for local mega projects, feng shui masters was engaged in the development of Suntec City with the 5 office towers symbolising fingers on a hand and the fountain of wealth representing a engagement or wedding ring.

    The rotation of Singapore Flyer was also reversed to direct the flow of water into the CBD under the advise again of the feng shui masters and I last heard the feng shui masters was advocating the suggestion that rocking mechanical arm be installed on the Sentosa Merlion to the Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC) and Singapore Tourism Board (STB).

    gambling either happens at some dark alleys in geylang or somewhere.. or at the casino..

    When it is at the casino, at least it brings in some revenue.. isn't it the lesser evil?

    I don't think the rich are likely to step into the casino as much as the poorer people... they have better avenues to multiply their money (if they step in, they won't mind losing anyway)

    For the poorer people like most of us here... I think it'll be better if:
    - We lose money, and they refund us the $100 on leaving.
    - We won more than $100, and they'll keep the $100.
    - We won anything between $0 to $100, they'll refund a portion of it.

    "recover 100"?

    there is a reason why the casino business is so happy, it is because got loads of people lose money, then want to "recover loss". in true blue irrational gambler's logic, the first place to recover loss is where they lost it.

    I think it's better not to be in a situation of trying to recover losses by not having a venue to facilitate your loss at the first place.

    looks like the $100 fee is causing many to not want to go casino

    See? its working........ to keep those that the Casino intends to keep out... out

    That $100 fee should actually be raised further to reduce congestion on the gaming floor .

    I think the consideration should be:

    1. What are the immediate and long term benefits to all stakeholders in having casinos in Singapore;

    2. What are the stake holders' cost in attaining these benefits;

    3. Does going ahead with casinos contravene the culture and values of the stakeholders;

    4. What if the cost becomes disproportiately larger than the benefits the decision makes.
