Something wrong with my account I guess. I played at the slot machine for quite some times. I did not get any TP at all but I got PP instead. Why is it so?
Where did you check your balance?

If you check from the RWAS Apps you should be able to see your Tier Point status.

Does anyone know how much to top up for palace upgrade from balcony? 4d3n cruise
Oh ok, thanks.
The rate to upgrade is about $600 (or $720 if with 3rd pax) for 3D/2N cruise as posted by others earlier. You can try to check earlier posts for details. Don't recall seeing any earlier posts about upgrade for longer 4D/3N cruise but you can try to check with frontdesk once onboard and share with us later.

Thanks!
So when do online checkin how to get the cabin key and the sticker to paste on passport?
Even if you do online check in you will still need to proceed to the kiosk to get the cabin card & sticker and go to the counter for passport check & collect your landyard

To me online check in is to know cabin number before hand or pre-pay certain items lol. As you will need to go thru the same even if you do online check in.

1TP Slot Play earns 325 PP.
Slot Play $4.40 per Spin earns about 3 PP.
Slot Play $1.76 per Spin earns about 1 PP.
PP earned might be with decimal but rounded as per above.
The 3PP or 1PP outcomes were taken after 1 'test' Spin per betting amount and viewed from the Kiosk balance.

Look like you have confused about Calculated Loss. Believe the correct term should be Estimated Cumulated Wagered Amount.

I have earned about 7KPP and my loss is definitely not $7700 or $10990 (calculated from 7000x$1.54) but about $1K (maybe 10%) otherwise will be I would think this amount is fair comparing to the costs of the cruise fare and is within my budget for this as entertainment.

It would be difficult to calculate %$ loss for Slot Play. Some machines can be good and on few spins could give you big win. Some could last you long hours of play for even a $100. Some could eat and wipe up all you BR within few minutes. This is unlike Table Games where you can pit against the odds using HA and Strategy etc.

Quote from Kia, he is expert to pro-long his Slot Plays with lesser BR to earn 100TP.
Looks to me you have used the win/loss outcome that I warn against.

You are one happy man as you said you got 7K PP for about $1K. Fair amount you said comparing to the cost of the cruise fair.

Next cruise who knows what you will happen to you.

You may even win and still get 7K PP.

Or you could lose your "BR within few minutes" to quote from you.

It all depends on your "luck" or in maths we say "variance"

Somehow you seems to be mixing up between 2 things.

One is about how much to bet (either Slot or Table) to earn point which is what we have been trying to find out. This is about what casino will reward or comp Players.

And two is about the HA, RTP or Probability of Slot Play.

From recent findings, it was noted we can earn about 4PP from $6.16 Spin Bet whether the outcome is a winning or dead spin. You have earlier also mentioned that you were able to earn 1TP from Rapid Roulette betting of about $370 x 7 games while losing about $10 each game.

As for HA, RTP or Probability, this is probably about 90% RTP by guessing. Maybe you could also be right that this % or different game or denom combination might play a part in the computation of the PP to be rewarded but guess this will need more test cases to find out.

Hope this clear any misunderstanding.

There is a 6 monthly review and maybe your TP was reset to 0.

Guys I think GD needs you to cough up some more money.

Dream cruise line is selling 1/3 of the cruise line to TPG Darting.

“The proceeds of the disposal will also increase the liquidity of the company and position it strongly to fund its continued expansion and new ship building programme on completing two ‘Global Class’ ships,”


Don't know how they are going to split the income, expanses and selling cost with the main company Genting HK. Presume they have to form a new company. It is not like RWS and MBS where the casino revenue, hotel and shopping mall all reporting as one company.

What management input will the new partner exercise. Will Genting HK be a casino company or cruise line company. Closest comparison is with RCL. But then the casino operator is just a sub contractor to RCL. In this case TPG is a part owner and Genting is a casino company.

Talking

Back from my 09Aug 3N cruise. Due to the monsoon the sea was abit rough and heavy winds along the way.

For those going on Phuket and stopping at the deep sea port. You will need to take the tender boat when disembark roughly 8 to 10mins. The taxi is THB1000 per way to the Phuket City where there will be many touts. I just went down stretch my legs. You can find some stalls selling clothes and food etc once you walk out. If you walk further there will be a 7-11 just outside the main road.

For Penang there was an incident and the ship need to leave and dock again due to very strong waves. Heard one of the gangway was broken. Hopefully no one was injured. For the re-dock they took nearly 1 1/2 hrs and many people was stuck at the immigration. some nearly waited for 2 1/2hrs. It was abit chaotic at the immgration as no clear announcement was made and alot of uncles and aunties was tired and angry and also got some people shouting. Even the dream cruise staffs also duno what happened for those went onshore.

I quite like the crystal asian spa (Deck 5) promotion. 2 package for 30% and 3 package for 50% which i guess is for longer cruise. I can say is worth it. 1 shoulder and foot massage 1hr is $65 so less 50% is very good deal loh. And you can use the facilities which is not bad. Got Steam, Sauna, pool & jacuzzi. Inside the spa also can find jackpot machine lol.

This trip not alot of ah neh. Lido can see the ah neh section really like nobody. Next trip is 16Aug so see if the ahneh really dropped.

I am holding silver card. My tier point is 2 and expiry on 28 Oct 2019. I called the membership to check that in order to maintain the card I need clear the 2 tier point but the expiry date still remain. They told me expiry date of tier point will not change. Then it will go back to red card. Is it right?

Yap, I was one of thousand who went offshore and returned back to penang port at 5:30pm and stuck till 7:30pm, took almost another 1 hour to board the ship, I was so worn out and not much energy left to fight at the casino. Returned back to bed at 12am and slept till next morning 10am. I heard the wave was pretty strong during Sunday wee hours, luckily I didn't feel it because I was too tired and slept like the dead.

Tier Points is reset every 6 months from the date the card was upgraded or maintained or reset.

The expiry date of that can be seen on RWAS app/website or at the kiosk.

Once the date is reached if you never maintained or upgrade you will be drop to the classic/Red as you are silver now and all TP will start from 0.

To maintain silver you need 6 TP to maintained by 28OCT19.
