Probably many stayed at FWH at Gentings..
Tired of limited channels offered by Vision Four?

Today I checked in FWH Tower 2 and bought my IPTV box.
Performance not bad.

Enjoying Channel 5/8 with 1 sec audio out of sync
But Taiwan and movies channels are OK

Prepaid SIM Data powered by XOX.
IPTV using QYZB (HDTV)

Things to note, the Telco strength along the corridors.. the windows signals are worse.
Nice! You connect yr box via HDMI right? On my last trip, I checked and it was quite challenging accessing the HDMI port on the TV.

I did try loading a few video file on a USB drive and plug it to the TV USB drive. I tried this with their older TV but no luck. It does works on the newer TV at Tower 3.

Interestingly, the TV remote for Maxim/GG is customised. And the 'Source' button has been removed. So it's impossible to do this at Maxim/GG since you will not be able to switch to the HDMI source. Again, access to the HDMI is challenging because the TV is wall mounted.

Then again, I think most bros do not go Genting to watch TV anyway. So I'm sure most won't bother.

I don't think you are allowed to bet both player and banker for NN chips at the baccarat table. Can check with any dealer on this first.

On the ETG the system would not allow you to do this. But you can on the ETG for Roulette, play red and black. But for NN credits their system may be altered to prevent this.

In this case play cash also on the next ETG terminal beside you to cancel out your betting. I would place a $5 bet on Zero so that you don't get whipped out on your $100 bets on red and black if Zero comes up.
Table games confirmed allowed - since ages liao, when was the last time u placed a bet there, bro?

- it's tested, proven & based on personal xperience (since they give free NN credits & chips at times) plus observations of other patrons as well many times..not just based on wat u thought or wat i thought..only thing is just watch out for the B6 half payment....

- ETG for roulette oso can...tested as well...u can go n try😊... for roulette, agreed on the suggestion on zero.

But the whole idea is on how to take advantage of the RM200 prosperity room pkg...the minute details abt probabilities is to be addressed separately as in any normal bettings.

U r right, bro. Only when i bring my little one and when staying at GG or MXM i do so.

U r right abt the accessibility on the TV settings but i had better luck previously - the models used had the buttons for manual settings at the side of the TV..so just rotate the TV sideway a bit u can access the buttons.

Personally, i dun watch tv tat much...only for occasions when my family n kiddo with me on the trip.....(whenever in my room i prefer do work or surf on my tablet)

Gloria Residences has air con?
Yeap, has aircon, and a heater function too. My room provided amazing views of the mountains. Will figure out how to upload a video of the room I stayed in.

Facilities wise, quite meh. Though I didn't venture throughout the hotel as I was spending majority of the time in the casino or in my room. Hehe.

But doubt I will be staying there again ah. Cause the trip to and fro First World quite mafan actually. And now that I have incurred GP, will be booking my future free stays at the main resort instead.

My last stay at Maxim in Feb, I did try the manual buttons on the TV but could not find the 'Source' button too.

I thought Maxim TV is fixed to the wall. Can rotate meh?

Yes. Can. The Tower 3 TV looks quite new. So probably should also be able to handle MKV files too. I will confirm again next month when I go up again.
