Gold and above can buy RM1k package, but only through their travel agency there. It's advance purchase too and subjected to room availability.

I ask the staff at the counter and was told the reset is 0430 hrs.

A very strange time. They should just align with the timing for the guest pass (which is 0500hrs).

Anyway, this is another reason I like to take nite coach. If you take the WTS night coach (depart 9pm onwards depending on yr pick up pt), you can usually reach Genting ard 3am+.

That gives you enough time to buy the Golden Package before the cut-off time. So over a 4D3N, it's possible to buy 4 packages.

can this analogy be applied to slots too?
max or min bet?
The situation for slots is slightly more complicated. This is because the casino edge can change based on the number of lines of played. A good example of this are the linked progressive slots which allow you to win the jackpot only if you play all the lines. The chance of hitting these jackpots is usually low. As such the odds improvement is usually very small. In general, it is almost impossible to compensate for the increase you are betting.

Putting this as a real life example, suppose we both play a progressive slot with Mini, Minor and Major jackpots. I play 1 line (RM 0.10). You play 25 lines (RM0.10x25 = RM 2.50). Because I play 1 line, I have no chance to strike the progressive jackpot. You on the other hand have a chance to strike the progressive jackpot. After 3D2N, I lose RM 100. You are expected to lose 23x to 25x what I lost (RM2,300 to RM2,500) even though you occasionally strike those mini, minor and major jackpots.

On the same note, it is a myth you can get positive expectations games from progressive jackpots that become "ripe". This myth is encouraged by casinos as it encourages increased play as the jackpot becomes larger (i.e. those uncles and aunties who will camp there and whack non stop once the jackpot exceeds a certain size). The statistics behind such jackpots is that the jackpot is 99.9999% likely to drop before the positive expectations point is reached. The casino in any case has network tools to monitor such events. In the very unlikely event that the positive expectations point is reached, the casino has the right and ability to reset the machines. The fact that you never see them do it is because that point is not reached 99.9999% of the time !

Go genting by air from Senai?

Wouldn't that make the whole journey super tiring due to having so many different legs? It does seem to make the journey a lot more interesting haha.

Does the itinerary look something like
Bus to JB > Bus to Senai > Flight to KLIA > Bus to GPO > Cable car to Genting

How long does the journey take this way and how much would this method cost compared to the usual way of going up by coaches?
