The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 50.1
Some time after the mental power incident had passed, Lin Luo received an incoming communication request from Wang Xun, asking him whether he would be participating in the Vermi Open Auction event that was to be held in galaxy 21 next month.
Planet Vermi is one of the largest gambling stone production worlds in the empire. Every year Vermi will hold a large-scale jadeite trade fair for fifteen days located in the most central city of the planet, which is the Vermi Open Auction.
In order to express respect for the origin of mankind, that is, the ancient earth era, the basic rules of the entire open auction event are formulated in accordance with the PingZhou Grand Duke in the ancient earth era.
The Vermi Open Auction is only freely open to members of the Stone Gambling Association. If other people want to participate in this event, they must pay a deposit of 1 million credits, which will not be returned until the end of the open auction.
Despite that, the Vermi Open Auction is famous for its large market, high-grade stone betting, and high-quality jade. Even if the entry barrier is high it still attracts tens of millions of stone betting players every year.
The Vermi Open Auction is like a big competition of financial strength, insight, and courage for all participants. Once a bet is won you can make a lot of money, and once a bet is lost you may lose your fortune.
For the members of the Stone Gambling Association, however, more than anything this is a good opportunity to get points. They can choose to cut jadeite they have won on the spot. As long as they can land a winning bet, they can get the corresponding points. This rule is enacted almost the same as that of the friendly matches of Siniya’s Seven-Stars Gambling Gathering.
After listening to Wang Xun’s explanation, Lin Luo immediately agreed.
He wanted to go to the open auction to find a better jade for Xing Mo, and the Stone Gambling Tournament was to be held this upcoming year. He can’t stay in the lower ranks all the time. He had to hurry up to earn points and also increase his knowledge along the way. If you can do several things in one fell swoop, why not do it?
After finishing the call with Wang Xun, Lin Luo rushed to Xing Mo’s study and told Xing Mo the news.
Xing Mo naturally supported his little lover unconditionally, and began to actively prepare for the trip to be taken next month.
What is the most important thing needed to participate in the Vermi Open Auction? Of course it’s money!
Due to the large number of participants, the competition has only become more fierce. The final transaction price of the jadeite in the Vermi Open Auction is almost never below 1 million. Last year’s bid king even sold a piece at a sky-high price of 360 million credits. No matter how good your vision is, if you have no money all your talents and abilities are useless.
Xing Mo calculated the balance on their account, and it was more than 30 million when it was full. It was fine to shoot some ordinary jadeite. If you want to bid for a few better materials, I am afraid that it is a little overwhelming.
What should you do if you are short of money? You borrow it.
Who can you borrow from?
Xing Mo immediately thought of Yin Ye, and immediately sent him a communication request.
“What? What else do you need my help with?” Yin Ye asked with a chuckle. He was very clear about Xing Mo’s personality of not going to the temple for no reason.
“Xiao Luo and I are going to participate in the Vermi public market. The money we have is not enough. Can you lend me some?”
“How much do you want?”
“Okay.” Yin Ye barely moved his eyebrows, “I’ll have ZiHao call you right away.”
When he was about to end the call, Xing Mo said again, “Do you want to invest another 100 million? I’ll count you as a stake, and I’ll give you half of the bet if you win.”
Yin Ye raised his eyebrows slightly when he heard the words, and after thinking about it for less than half a minute, he agreed, “Okay, I’ll give you another 100 million, and if the bet goes up, we’ll split the account half and half.”
“You helped me so much, I should thank you, right?”
“It all equals out in the end, you’re paying back my favor, I understand.” Yin Ye knew that with Lin Luo’s ability, gambling a win wasn’t even a matter of minutes, and Xing Mo really asked him to invest another 100 million not to make money but to pay back his favor by cutting him in on a share.
The two chatted for a while longer, then ended the call. With the 200 million that Yin Ye transferred, this time the Vermi Open Auction trip was guaranteed.
In a blink of an eye, it was the day of departure. During this period of time, Lin Luo had been diligent in studying knowledge related to gambling at home. He always remembered that during the Seven-Stars Gambling Gathering, there were a few pieces of bad jadeite that almost caught his eye which showed him that, in fact, his basic skills were not as solid as he had previously thought.
In addition, Lin Luo also exercised his mental power threshold by extracting elemental liquids, hoping to make himself able to last longer when using his special abilities.
“The car is here, get ready to go.” Xing Mo walked into the room and couldn’t help but smile as he looked at Lin Luo who was still putting small snacks in the space button.
“Okay, okay.” Lin Luo’s face turned red slightly, and he quickly finished packing, and went downstairs with Xing Mo.
