Casinos are dynamic places full of excitement and life-changing moments. The gambling sector (included best casino slot games) is not only one of the most lucrative industries in the world but also one of the most interesting ones. Some players risked it all and this article is dedicated to the ones who succeeded.
All on Red
Ashley Revell, a 32-year-old Brit sold everything that he owns and booked a one-trip card to Las Vegas, Nevada. Revell gathered around $164,000 and placed it all on red. Revell picked Las Vegas because it is an iconic place for gamblers and he wanted the whole package including the media coverage and casino benefits such as the free room, the limousine and such.
Ashley gambled everything in one single bet and in the case of failure; he wouldn’t even have for a trip back to the UK. Ashley picked to play European Roulette because it has better odds than the American roulette that has a double zero. You see, betting all on red is not a 50-50 bet because of the zero.
The iconic spin occurred in 2004 in the Plaza Hotel and Casino. He won. From the winnings, Ashley bought a motorcycle and went on a roadtrip across Europe during whom he met his future wife and mother of his children. What a story!
An Unfortunate Win
One of the strangest wins in history occurred in Florida. A person playing on the slot machine asked a lady that was sitting next to him to push the button as a sign of good luck. The lady sitting next to him was Marina Medvedeva and her push resulted in a $100,000 win. However, the winner wasn’t the player whose money it was but the girl who pushed the button and she received all of the money. So, if you believe the person sitting next to you might give you a lucky win, don’t. You might actually lose your winnings.
From Rich to Richer
In 2008, the owner of Newcastle United from the UK, Mike Ashley, played on a roulette table at the 50 London Casino. Mike played a high hand, £480,000 of worth on several numbers, mostly the number 17. When the wheel stopped, he was richer for £1.3 million.
