Live Online Roulette | Big Bets At The Roulette Table
Since its inception into gambling life back in the 1700s, the roulette wheel has attracted lots of folks who enjoy the fast-paced action, spinning colours, and of course the chance to strike it rich with the careful placement of a chip. Since the roulette wheel is really a game of numbers, the game also attracts its share of players who think they can figure out a way to work with the mathematical concepts and make big time money at the wheel. Throughout time, there has been many a famous wager placed at the roulette wheel.
Jaggers, a British man, hired six people to go to Monte Carlo and look for oddities in the roulette wheels. They did so and reported that one wheel had a tendency to land on a certain number more times than the others did. Jaggers played his bets using this idea and won (according to differing reports) somewhere between $325,000 and $450,000. Can you imagine the buying power of that kind of money back in the 1800s?
Just a few years ago, the newspapers were abuzz over Ashley Revell’s trip to Las Vegas. It was reported that he sold everything he owned and took the entire sum of money -- $135,000 -- and placed the whole amount on a double-or nothing “red” bet. Lucky for him, the ball landed on a red, and he walked out of the casino worth twice as much as when he went in.
In The Sting, a movie from the 1970s, Robert Redford’s character decides to play roulette for money, he bets all his money that he got from a scam and loses because the wheel is rigged. Also In the 1970’s, some lucky university students from California were triumphant in winning $10000 using a device they had made.
Charles Wells, a shady character from London, headed to Monte Carlo to try his hand at the roulette tables. It is reported that he “broke the bank” each time he played, at each table, over the course of several days. At first, he claimed to have a system that allowed him to win, probably hoping to swindle some people out of their money by trying to sell it to them. Later on, though, he claimed it was just luck.
Kathy Jenkins, of the United States packed her bags and flew across the country to Las Vegas, a.k.a. Sin City. She brought with her only $200 to gamble with and decided to give the ol’ roulette wheel a spin. At a table with a low minimum, she played for about an hour, winning each time, and increasing her bet each time she won. She walked out of that Vegas casino with $20,000 and paid off her car loan when she got home.
