Chapter 450: A Good Job That Makes Tons of Money (Part Two)
– On the next day –
Following Xu Cheng’s instructions, Lin Dong went online and registered a job listing for a part-time position.
Then, Xu Cheng and Lin Dong headed to Las Vegas.
The moment the job listing went live, Lin Dong received a lot of applicants, all of which were college students using the winter break to make some extra cash.
“In the morning, you just need to work for an hour, 50 dollars plus commission, and the commission is guaranteed to be more than 500 dollars,” Lin Dong said to one of the college students that came for an interview.
That student looked at Lin Dong suspiciously. “You aren’t joking, right?”
“Is there a problem?” Lin Dong was just following the instructions of his teacher regarding pay, and after he confirmed with his notes that there was no problem, he looked back at the student and said, “You don’t have to take the job.”
“Can I ask, what is it that I will be doing? I feel like something is off… Just one hour of work and I can make $50 plus commission?” The student shrugged. “To be honest, as long as it’s not against the law, I feel like I wouldn’t be against anything that I might be doing.”
Lin Dong smiled. “I can promise you, it’s nothing illegal.”
He pointed at the casino across the street and said, “Do you know how to gamble? Do you feel like gambling in there is illegal?”
The student: “Not against the law, and you are saying, my job will be gambling? Gambling money for you?”
Lin Dong smiled and said, “Yeah.”
The student shrugged. “Sounds interesting, but how come you are so confident in my gambling skills? Wouldn’t you be scared that I would lose money for you? Why do I feel like there’s a catch somewhere.”
Lin Dong: “We don’t have to sign an agreement, so don’t worry. Simply put, for one hour, you will have to cooperate with us, just gamble however I tell you to gamble, and after one hour, you deliver the money to us and you can get your commission. You will be able to make 1% of the winnings as commission. How about it, do you want to do this job or not? I promise you, there won’t be any hidden consequences. But, each of you guys can only do this job once.”
The student: “Can I understand it as, if I win, I can make 1% of the commission plus 50$, but what happens if I lose?”
Lin Dong: “Then you are free to go, leave the casino, no one will force you to do anything. Look at me, I’m from Huaxia, would I dare to do something to you in the M Nation?”
“That’s true.” The student nodded. “Alright, I’m down.”
Lin Dong answered a lot of similar questions from the other applicants. There were also a few that thought it was a scam and left, and Lin Dong didn’t force anything.
When it was about night time, Xu Cheng met up with him at an office room he temporarily rented and asked, “How many part-timers do we have tonight?”
“Teacher, 50 guys. What do you have in mind? If you are getting them to gamble, why not just gamble ourselves? That way, even if we lose, we can have some fun,” Lin Dong curiously said.
“What do you know? Back then, when I was dominating the gambling world, you were still being breastfed. Right now, it’s just that someone’s on our tail so it’s not convenient for me to personally do it. Besides, I don’t want to attract too much attention. Tonight, we will just make our first wave of money, and for the next little while, this will be our job. Haha, thinking about using the M Nation’s money to fund my own mercenary group, how come I’m not feeling any guilt at all?” Xu Cheng laughed.

– At night –
Xu Cheng ordered a bottle of champagne and sat on the roof of a hotel overlooking the casino, leaning back on the chair. (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
Inside the casino, there were 25 part-time workers that entered the lobby first and exchanged the money into chips. Lin Dong stood in the middle of the casino lobby with a voice-chat phone app on at all times. Xu Cheng would be telling him how to gamble.
