Received call from my RM. Can book explorer dream ( star virgo) for departure in Australia, but must take flight there with your own expenses.

just to share, u can't use GD free cabin to book sister ship. Only can redeem/board GD.

thought it's same as Star cruise, few years ago I ever use the free cabin to board other sister ship in HK.

They have sent SMS few months ago in January about this for departure from Shanghai (ex-HK), Singapore and Darwin to Sydney on 6-Oct. Also within Australia Cities or to New Zealand from Oct 2019.

You can probably join in SG to cruise to Sydney and fly back one way.

However if you have been onboard Genting Dream or World Dream before (both are almost double in size), you probably may not want to try this smaller refurbished ex-SuperStar Virgo now known as Explorer Dream unless you are interested in the Australia/NZ Itineraries.

Been playing on $200 baccarat table with around 50% betting but only manage to clock in 10TP in 3 full shoe. So the based calculations diff on different games.
Think it probably took into consideration of the initial or subsequent amount you have changed from cash to cash chips, plus the time played.

How much did you changed and how long did you play or how long time to complete 1 or 3 shoes?

absolutely no checks on the dress code loh.. Can see people(apnn) wearing bathrobe and queuing at the 6 lvl front office so many times.. Only zipline,rocking climbing, gym you should wear accordingly.

Very heng last min got a balcony for 21Jun cruise yesterday... really tough since they start the new system.. old system i still can get balcony deluxe but not now.
Sometime there are last minutes cancellation or released from blocked cabins or transferred from non-Casino cabins etc.

What is your card Status?

so far, no one calls me before.

agreed, virgo think 20yrs old? old ship and small, at that time was the biggest among the Stars.

I change my chips from other table. Played around 5 hrs for 3 shoes. Played 1 to 1 with the dealer.

Played 5 hrs at $200 Table only to get 10TP? That's about 2TP earned per hour.

Is the table in general gaming area or inside the Premium or International area?

At the premium, near the roulette table. Sometimes can get more tp at outside $100 table.

My estimates was based on Slot Plays where Points are awarded after you pressed the Spin or Play button. It does not matter if game result is good or bad. A 5cents denom at full 88credits or $4.40 per spin, you will earn TP faster than playing on a 2cents 88credits Slot. Apparently this is a very complex formula which I have yet to figure out and it looks like based on USD. However from my play experience, I could easily earn few TPs per hour play on Slots similar like Kia.

From your ETG Rapid Roulette, you betted $175 each on Black and Red plus $10 on zero. Total bet amound should be S$360 or about US$262 to get 1TP per game. Think this is very close to my earlier estimation of $250 (on high side) except unsure if it is based on USD value.
Just want to be sure you understand the roulette etg play
I lose $10 every round and get 0.130 TP. So after 7 rounds I get 0.91 TP.

Seems that your calculation was based on lost amount or maybe House Advantage HA % which does not seem correct. Just think of what if you bet only both Black and Red $180 each (sorry just realised you mentioned $175 earlier but why not $180 based on 18 red and 18 black?) and do not bet the $10 on the zero. Chances of losing even $10 is very low (unless really bad luck that all 7 rounds open number 0 ) but you still get TP (guess same 0.130) right?

Yes the TP awarded is based on the total bet.
The $10 bet on zero is to take the gamble out of play.
The bet on zero is an insurance bet. Yes can do $180, but it is a very small over insurance.

I occasionally play ETG. Bet ONCE or TWICE, win $100-$200 and leave. If play roulette usually bet line of 3 numbers or block of 6 numbers. Risk $500-$1k for a winning of $100-$200, feel so stressful
However, throwing $500 into a slot machine is "cheap".
Obviously, I am a slot person. Going up tonight.

I agreed that playing slots actually will earn more TP easier than ETG.

I can have avg bet of $65 per game in ETG, the TP earned after 2 hours is only 1TP++.. probably they will not issue TP if we win? Hmm... Because i only put in $100 and then i started my game with min bet..after I got my hunches right, i will gradually increase my stakes.

Realised if i play slots, especially lightning respin or the echo fortune, same time spent on the machine, TP earned is much more.
