Chapter 480: Acquiring Casinos (Part Two)
But, other people weren’t stupid too. If it was before, there would be someone coming out to take the deal within the blink of an eye even if the price tag was 5 billion. But now, the segment that was originally most lucrative was no longer capable of generating a profit and was even losing a crap ton of money. If it was just the hotel section of the bundle, it wouldn’t be worth 2 billion at all! Other people weren’t stupid. If your casinos were losing money every day, who would still be willing to spend 2 billion to buy it?
The highest bidder was 1 billion!
At this time, Stenson came forward.
Peel’s son agreed without hesitation. “Deal!”
And then, from pedestrian malls, resort hotels, to casinos, the largest establishment in Las Vegas was bought under Xu Cheng’s name.
The four mafia bosses sat in Xu Cheng’s villa, they were quite envious.
Lin Dong poured a cup of tea for each of them, and the four of them weren’t in the mood at all for some tea. They anxiously asked, “Mr. Fang, so about the other casinos…”
Xu Cheng put down his cigar and nodded. “You guys go nuts. I told you, I won’t treat you badly if you follow me.”
The four of them all nodded in excitement as they picked up the teacups and raised it to Xu Cheng. “Mr. Fang, you are indeed a great business partner. We were wise to agree to work with you. Here, Mr. Fang, following your home country’s traditions, we will toast with this tea in place of alcohol!”
The four of them all downed the tea in one go, their faces filled with excitement and satisfaction.
“I can also help you guys snipe the other casinos. But as for acquiring those casinos, you guys can take care of it. Each of you has probably pocketed more than three billion since we began cooperating, right?”
“Of course, of course, we will take full care of it!” Saar waved his hand. “We got the money.”
Xu Cheng nodded. “But I will say the ugly words ahead of time. I brought you guys into this game, and I can also kick you out. For all things, it’s better to follow the rules. I know you guys don’t want to be known for doing shady business for your whole life. I’m not in a position to tell you what to do with your businesses back in Mexico, but! For the future prosperity of Las Vegas, I hope you guys don’t mess up the atmosphere and rules this city originally has, you guys know what I mean? Although this is the city of sin, don’t bring in the bad habits you guys had before. I know your black market has no rules, but here, if you want to make money for a long time, there must be rules!”
The other four immediately nodded and smiled. “That’s for sure, we also wanted to make the switch earlier. Don’t worry, since the casinos are legal, we will follow the laws and rules, we won’t mess around.”
Xu Cheng nodded. He picked up his teacup and said, “Alright. After you guys eat up these casinos, I won’t mess around with the casinos anymore. You guys can run the casinos, just do it well.”
The four of them nodded and clicked their cups in the middle. After they took over the casinos, they obviously wouldn’t want Xu Cheng to continue winning money. Actually, even until now, they don’t know how Xu Cheng did it. He never set foot into the casinos, yet he could guess the answer with a one-hundred-percent accuracy.
The craziest part was, he could even guess the Poker cards before they were dealt, as well as everyone’s hands.
In fact, it wasn’t these four people that admired Xu Cheng the most, it was those from the gangs that gambled for them at the casino. They basically just went in there blind and did exactly what Xu Cheng said to do. They would immediately obey the instructions and then bet accurately and win.
At first, normal people would immediately think that Xu Cheng had some moles inside the casino to help out, but even after the police, FBI, and the casino executives invited professionals to clean up the staff ranking, it didn’t seem to change a thing at all. Xu Cheng could still win money from the casino like none of it even happened.(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
Over the first two months, Xu Cheng robbed 19 billion from the casinos! This was even crazier than just robbing a bank. If anyone inside the mafia families weren’t convinced by Xu Cheng’s skills, everyone else probably would drown him in spit. All in all, Mr. Fang became like a god-like figure that the minions at the mafias wouldn’t even dare to talk about.(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
But, it wouldn’t matter if they talked about it. After all, Xu Cheng just used Fang as it was the slang for the Diamond suit in Poker, his real last name wasn’t even close to Fang.(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
