When Xiao Luo won again! This time it was a 40 million dollar bet on “Big,” and he duly received an 80 million dollar payout. As the stacks of chips continued to grow into skyscrapers in front of him, the excitement of the crowd had now turned into a carnival-like atmosphere with everyone enthusiastically shouting “God of Gambling.” The noise and commotion attracted more and more onlookers, and the table quickly became the center of attention.
Gu Qianlin was in a state of total shock and awe! Winning four rounds in a row was simply just unbelievable.
At the moment, the croupier found an excuse to take his leave, and another replaced him.
The corner of Xiao Luo’s mouth curled up in mockery. The old trick, again.
“Enough, I’ll stop here today.”
Xiao Luo asked a casino employee to cash in the chips and bank in the money to his account.
“Wait, since you are so lucky, isn’t it a pity to not continue playing for a couple more games?”
Geng Qiuxing dashed down at almost the speed of a 100-meter sprinter. 80 million dollars were at stake. The casino was already making one hell of a loss, if the money was taken away just like that, Master Long would probably cut him up alive. So, it was definitely impossible for him to just stand aside and watch Xiao Luo leave.
“Can’t I even stop if I don’t feel like playing anymore?” Xiao Luo laughed coldly.
“Can, of course, you can. I just feel that you can play a couple more games since you are so lucky. It’s a suggestion, just a suggestion!” Geng Qiuxing said with a smile. His face was all smiles, but his eyes were dark and gloomy.
“Officer Gu, what do you think?”
Xiao Luo turned to look at Gu Qianlin and asked with a smile.
Geng Qiuxing’s expression changed slightly. With a cop here, it would really be quite hard for him to threaten Xiao Luo. But he couldn’t just let Xiao Luo walk away with 80 million. He was conflicted and at a loss for a while, unable to decide on how to make his move.
Gu Qianlin was a good reader of vocal and physical expressions. She was immediately aware of the warnings and threats within Geng Qiuxing’s words and gaze. Now, she finally understood why Xiao Luo had asked her to come over, and it was purely to use her for protection. Although she hated the casino’s shady methods, she wasn’t so sure if she now hated Xiao Luo even more for playing her like a fool.
Clearing her throat, she said, “I think you can play a couple more games.”
Geng Qiuxing’s expression relaxed, and he laughed sinisterly. “This beautiful lady here is right. Surely it is unreasonable to stop since you are so lucky.”
“Then, I’ll play a couple more games!”
Xiao Luo shrugged indifferently and sat back down at the table. “I’ll stop when I have 100 million.”
Hearing his words, Geng Qiuxing laughed to himself, as he thought, “You would be lucky enough to walk out of the casino with as much money as you came in with, and yet here you are, still wanting to make 100 million, in your f*cking dreams!”
As the new croupier took his position on the table, Geng Qiuxing gave him a meaningful look.
The croupier nodded in response, then deftly switched the three dice.
“Let’s start.” He smiled at Xiao Luo, then placed the lid over the bowl and prepared to start shaking.
Xiao Luo directly reached out and grabbed the croupier’s wrist. Before he could react, Xiao Luo had taken off the ring on the other man’s finger. Xiao Luo then opened the dice casting bowl and waved the ring over the three dice. As the ring moved, so did the dice, which would allow the croupier to alter the dice roll at as he wished.
Xiao Luo gave an innocent, inquiring smile. “Pardon me for asking, is this considered cheating?”
The croupier’s expression changed drastically, as a cold sweat broke out, and he couldn’t believe that Xiao Luo saw through his trick.
Meanwhile, the gamblers around them, seeing what had happened, reacted immediately. They now understood why they had lost most of the time in this casino. Recalling how much money they had lost in vain, their anger surged all at once.
“Cheaters, there’re cheaters here!”
“B*stard, you *ssholes, return me my hard-earned money.”
“Everyone come and see this, the casino has cheated, the casino has cheated us of our money.”
The crowd was furious. As more and more gamblers heard the commotion, they made their way over. After knowing what happened, they all joined the ranks of protestors against the casino. For a while, the shouts and protests were overwhelming. The offending croupier was beaten up outright by the crowd. A lot of the gamblers who had lost all of their cash and assets began smashing up everything in the casino. It started with only one person and quickly grew into a mob.
“Xiao Luo, you…”
Gu Qianlin had underestimated Xiao Luo. She knew that Xiao Luo had just intended to stir up some trouble in the casino, but now she realized he actually had a well thought out plan from the very start. The Dragon Gang had smashed up shops belonging to Luo’s Company, so he used the fury of the angry gamblers to achieve his goal of smashing up the Yellow Skies Casino. And he got his vengeance without having to actually do it himself.
“I’m just letting everyone know the truth and help them quit gambling.” Xiao Luo said in mock concern.
Gu Qianlin knew that he could not be reasoned with. Watching hundreds of gamblers madly smashing up the premises and beating up the casino employees, she took out her phone to contact the headquarters to send a team immediately. However, a protester knocked into her in the chaos, causing her handphone to drop, right under the feet of the stampeding gamblers. Broken, it could no longer be used.
Standing amid the mayhem, Geng Qiuxing was raging in a fury, his face ominous and dark. Xiao Luo had exposed the casino’s hidden scams, and the casino’s reputation would be destroyed, causing its business to plummet. How could he possibly stay calm with his casino being smashed up by angry gamblers?
“The casino is in trouble, send forty to fifty men over!”
He made the call, and in less than 10 minutes, 5 vans screeched to the front entrance of the casino. A cohort of burly men armed with long knives, axes, and iron rods alighted from the vehicles. In an instant, the doors of the casino burst open, and the armed men charged into the massed crowd of protestors, hacking them down with no mercy.
“Officer Gu, the villains are here, do hurry and arrest them. Look at them, how ferocious they are, hacking away at people.” Xiao Luo said to Gu Qianlin, flashing a sardonic smile to her face.
Gu Qianlin’s thoughts were in a whirl. She had long since known that the Dragon Gang members were ruthless, but seeing it with her own eyes, her understanding of “ruthless” took on a whole new meaning. Hacking away relentlessly with their weapons, how could these people do it to unarmed folk?
“Stop hitting me, we dare not continue, we dare not continue.”
“I’m sorry, please don’t kill me.”
“Stop, don’t kill me.”
As the Dragon Gang hacked away, the gamblers in the casino cowered in fear and knelt down to beg for their lives.
“Everyone, f*cking get out and shut your mouth after getting out. Don’t spread rumors, or I’ll bury you all alive!” Geng Qiuxing roared fiercely as he issued his threat.
The gamblers were grateful to get away with their lives and promptly fled. It didn’t take long before everyone cleared out, leaving only Xiao Luo, Gu Qianlin, and the fierce-looking members of the Dragon Gang in the casino.
“Little b*stard, don’t you know what place this is! How dare you misbehave yourself here. I think you don’t know how the devil looks like.” Geng Qiuxing’s expression was grotesque, and he bellowed in a cruel voice as if he wanted to swallow Xiao Luo alive.
Xiao Luo didn’t answer him, but said to Gu Qianlin, “Officer Gu, surely you wouldn’t stand aside and watch them hack me to death!”
Gu Qianlin knew that Xiao Luo had blatantly manipulated her, but at the moment, her sense of duty took precedence, and she suffered her angst in silence. She strode forward and pointed at Geng Qiuxing. “I am a Police Officer Gu, hurry up and ask your men to put down their weapons and plead for leniency, or else…”
“Else your head! Go and hack this b*tch and that little b*stard into a paste!” Geng Qiuxing was raging with fury.” I couldn’t care less if she was a cop, they can just f*cking die.”
“You bunch of sh*t!”
As the Dragon Gang members swarmed towards them, Gu Qianlin rushed towards them in measured steps, and with a feint and a slap of her hand, she drove off the man at the front of the mob and skillfully snatched away his steel rod…
