Thanks
the cycle completely resets, so 1st extension is 1 month then 2nd is 2 months. U will need a return ticket but sometimes i just bluff it, doesnt always work

3) if you win, can they put cash back onto your card? or do i have to just carry cash back home?

4) Expected to tip dealers?

5) drinks free? how about beer?
1. RWM smaller stakes, solaire bigger

2. if u mean withdrawing from casino cashier i have no idea, at ATMs most are 10k cap with hsbc being 40k cap.

3. u can open an account in solaire and deposit money there, RWM u carry the cash

4. no

5. yes, beer too

BGC is nice around Manila area. I feel more comfortable around that area.

Is the internet really good in Bohol? What are you doing online?
Seems like thats what people are recommending Bohol to have a decent internet. Palawan locals told me has worse internet. I will try to check out both

gotgot123 As a rule of thumb never withdraw or convert any money in a casino (horrendous fees, worse than airports). Having said that the money changer at Solaire (not the cage/cashier, the money changer that is close to the food court) offers excellent USD/PHP conversion rates, around 0.2-0.3% juice, better than the one at RWM IIRC. For other currencies are the rates are worse

Though the acr card is valid for 1 year, so if it is still valid when you make your 2nd extension, you don't need to get new one just yet(you have to get one when it has expired though).

I think you have to pay for beer at RWM... it just depends on room which is free and which is not(but at least most have free soft drinks/coffee/tea).

Have you checked Lazada?

They probably have something for you there. Or even Amazon.com possibly if Lazada doesn't have it.

I ordered something off of Amazon and it had to go through customs so I would check with Lazada first if possible...

Re: Anyone to ask about living in the Philippines?

Beer and soda in can are not free at RW. Beer is like P200 for San Mig.

It may just have been because bad beat was so high but last couple times I was at RW they did not have 25/50, only 50/100 and 100/200.

Re: Anyone to ask about living in the Philippines?

Thanks for comments. I think lazada is good for monitors - not sure of the height of the chairs.

By the way what do I need for opening bank account in philly, is alien card and cash enough together with random bill to philippines address? How safe you think it is to play non licensed sites (taxable for europe) and keep money traffic between philly bank and skill? Have you guys had any issues and are the banks how interested (assuming gambling winnings are okay and they probably don't care of taxes) ?
