Goofs

In the official trailer the winning prize for successful escape is dubbed as $1,000,000 but in the movie it is only $10,000, as can be seen printed on the entry voucher and is stated by the characters when they gather for the first time. Still, the entry voucher with the printed sum of $10,000 is also briefly visible in the trailer. See more »

Quotes

Games Master WooTan Yu: Have you ever think of Kentucky Derby, do you think the horse can get the prize?
