    So rich still want to be richer... greed would be the downfall of man.

    If only he would donate 0.01% of that sum to me.

    Casinos also not stupid .. they do background check b4 granting line of credit, which is why most of these folks are able to run up millions of dollars of losses.

    Anyways, speaking of cameras, when u have tens of millions (dont even need to talk about hundreds of millions) i doubt photography will occupy most of your spare time. There will b other distractions .. investments, properties, cars, country clubs, traveling, hanging out @ night clubs etc ..

    D3 .. L lenses.. XMM .. photography techniques ... all passe

    CASINO is for losers

    What do you all expect ???

    As long as the money comes from foreigners and contribute to SG GDP, nobody will have any objections except for the losers

    Top bankers can gamble in super VIP rooms meant for whales with $4,000 a bottle liquor, birds nest, abalone, sharksfin, best cigars, beautiful waitresses, whatever...

    Of course no need to gamble in public, lah....

    Maybe even got secret route for access and egress to super VIP gambling room, so no public can see.
