Ten days after Bryan Berg completed his Guinness World Record for the largest house of freestanding playing cards, he returned to The Venetian Macao to knockdown the 218,792 -card structure to prove that no tape, glue or other foreign substances were used to aid the construction of the house of cards.
It took Bryan 44 days to complete the house of cards but only seconds to knock it down, on Saturday, with the help of a large blower device.
To celebrate the occasion, one gold million dollar card was placed amidst the structure during the building process, and one lucky participant was given two minutes to find the card after the structure had been knocked down to win HKD 1,000,000.
The “Quest for Gold” promotion was open to all Sands Club, Cotai Rewards Club™ and select Paiza Club members who had the opportunity to put their name forward for the lucky draw for the chance to instantly win the jackpot cash prize.
Unfortunately Lam Tsz Kwok did not succeed in finding the gold million dollar card but he did take home a substantial consolation prize of HKD 250,000, while Wu Leong Kit, Zhou Xu Feng, Mrs Yau Koon Tai and Ms Chen Yuet Wa were also awarded HKD 50,000 as runner-up prizes.
