In this performance, cigarettes stamped wit the foreign investment logo are used as gambling stakes. Any visitor wishing to join the game may also gamble his/her own cigarettes as investment. Non-smokers could cash-in their cigarettes after the game. (Smoking causes Fatal Diseases РGovernment Health Warning).
