texas holdem in genting

saw this ad on genting’s website, check it out. its for a texas holdem tournament in genting taking place on the 10th of october, i think registration closes on 5th oct though.

now although i found it pretty interesting that genting had holdem tournaments, the thing that caught my eye was actually the asterix beside the prize money amount. it directs your attention to a note near the bottom of the ad which says “prizes are payable in ringgit malaysia non-negotiable chips warrant”. apparently what this means is that instead of you getting your prize money in cash, you get it in the form of non-redeemable casino chips which can be used at the table games. so you cant cash these chips out, but you got to win at the table games to actually redeem cash. there’s a discussion here if you wanna read more about it.

now correct me if i’m wrong but doesnt that just seriously take away from the attractiveness of the tournament?
