Because the game was improvised, and the person who organized the game had voluntarily given up direct participation in the game and volunteered to be the dealer, several participants other than Charlie wade and Olivia did not even think about cheating.
The poker cards were unopened and new, so no one would suspect anything.
There was nothing wrong with the cards, but the real problem was with the dealer.
He is an expert gambler himself and has made his fortune from gambling. Even when playing with professionals, he can cheat unnoticed, let alone against such a group of amateurs.
This man has a very fast hand and a very good memory, with finger dexterity that is comparable to that of a close-up magician, so when he shuffles the cards, no one knows that he has already memorised the position of each card.
He then cut and inserted the cards seemingly at random, having already arranged the cards according to his predetermined rules.
At this time, Olivia also gave each person a pile of chips and said: “Gentlemen, each of us has 100 million euros in chips, we will take them first, whoever loses first will buy all 100 million euros from the others and continue to play. share according to the amount they each won, what does everyone think?”
Naturally the crowd had no problem with this.
After all, Olivia’s place was not a real casino. In a casino, people would first pay to buy chips from the casino and then return the money at the end, but in a private gambling game between friends like this, they would not usually buy chips from a certain person, but would give out the chips first and the first one to lose would take the money out to buy them, so it would be easier to count.
However, just as the others were nodding their heads, Charlie wade spoke up, “Let me interject ah, the chips are only 100 million euros, isn’t that a little less?”
“That’s still less?” A kid whom Charlie wade didn’t know said offhandedly, “It’s just for fun, one hundred million is quite a lot!”
Charlie wade waved his hand and said with an expression of disdain, “One hundred million euros is not enough, if I don’t have enough chips, I can’t even place a bet!”
Olivia asked, “Then what does Mr. Wade mean?”
Charlie wade laughed, “Simple, just multiply the face value of all the chips by ten times.”
As he said that, he picked up a 100,000 chip and spoke, “Look, this 100,000 chip represents one million euros, and this one next to it, which is one million, will be ten million euros.”
The others could not help but suck in a cold breath.
One of them thought to himself, “D*mn, he’s really rich! A billion euros for an entertainment poker game, that’s too f*cking scary.”
The others mostly echoed this sentiment.
Playing too big was more than they could afford.
The most these guys could lose was a few million or a few tens of millions, and to really lose a billion on such an occasion would be absolutely devastating.
William, however, was thrilled to the core.
He knew very well in his heart that he had the secret help of the lottery officials and absolutely ate Charlie wade to death.
Not to mention a billion euros at most, what the hell is 10 billion euros? It was a good thing to have a 100% win rate, so it was done.
So he said, “Gentlemen, Mr. Wade is a guest here, so don’t let Mr. Wade spoil his fun. If you really think the stakes are too high, don’t force yourself to place heavy bets.”
When the crowd heard this, they could only nod their heads in agreement.
After all, here, William was half the host, and was a member of the Rothschild family, so he had more face than everyone else. As for Charlie wade, the Wade family behind him was indeed worth over a hundred billion euros, and had inextricable ties with the Ten Thousand Dragons Temple, so everyone could only go along with the two of them.
Seeing this, the lotus said with a smile, “Good, since everyone has discussed the rules, I will now deal the cards.”
Immediately afterwards, he dealt the first card to the first person on his right, and then dealt the cards in order all the way through.
After the cards were dealt, the bets began to be placed.
