SB 10.61.30
tato laksam rukmy agrhnad
 glaham tatrajayad balah
jitavan aham ity aha
 rukmi kaitavam asritah

Translation:
Next Rukmi accepted a bet of one hundred thousand coins, which Lord Balarama won. But Rukmi tried to cheat, declaring “I’m the winner!”


SB 10.61.31
manyuna ksubhitah sriman
 samudra iva parvani
jatyarunakso ’ti-rusa
 nyarbudam glaham adade

Translation:
Shaking with anger like the ocean on the full-moon day, handsome Lord Balarama, His naturally reddish eyes even redder in His fury, accepted a wager of one hundred million gold coins.


SB 10.61.32
tam capi jitavan ramo
 dharmena chalam asritah
rukmi jitam mayatreme
 vadantu prasnika iti

Translation:
Lord Balarama fairly won this wager also, but Rukmi again resorted to cheating and declared, “I have won! Let these witnesses here say what they saw.”

Purport:
Rukmi undoubtedly had his friends in mind when he called for the witnesses to speak. But even as his witnesses prepared to aid their cheating friend, a wonderful event took place, as described in the next verse.
