Hakari seemed so powerful compared to Kashimo, but it turned out that his jackpots were the only ones saving him from Kashimo’s torture.

The Spoiler Stuff
Hajime comes to the conclusion that Hakari’s technique is in Jitan mode, better known as Time Reduction mode. This mode increases the speed of the draw, but the probability of hitting the jackpot remains the same. Hakari gets lucky again and hits the jackpot, thanks to the Jitan mode. Hakari knows some science stuff, so he decides to throw Kashimo into the sea as he would then be left with no option but to use all his Cursed Energy or shut it off completely.
Now that Hakari has hit the jackpot, he has obtained unlimited CT and Reverse Cursed Technique again. Hajime rides on the nearby cursed spirits and tries to fight Hakari back. But Hakari successfully throws him into the water. While Hakari is waiting for Kashimo to come up, he smells something strong and falls into the sea.
That strong smell is chlorine gas, which bubbles up after Kashimo discharges electricity into the sea. It is then revealed that Reverse Cursed Technique users can be killed by crushing their brains or poisoning them. And removing the poison requires a High Reverse Cursed Technique operation. Kashimo thinks that he has finally defeated Hakari, until to his surprise the latter suddenly revives himself, resurrected due to the high automatic Reverse Cursed Technique his body is using. With the five seconds of his immortality left, he starts to attack Kashimo under the water. At the end of the chapter, Kashimo causes a huge explosion under the sea.
