Once upon a time in England one guy decided to sell all the possessions he owned. He left for Vegas and became a betting super-star. His name is Ashley Revell.
Premonition or Stupidity?
It happened in 2007, when he sold everything, including the house, car and even clothes. Ashley went to Las Vegas, to be precise, to Plaza Hotel to make a historic bet. He was never a black sheep, he had friends, parents who loved him, but probably, he was lacking in adrenaline. So, he figured out how to catch the groove.
Remember about the maximum bets? So, for a moment forget about it. Everything he had was $135 300. As we know, they like to make a show out of everything in the United Stated.
"Poor" guy became a celebrity at once. Everybody wanted to take a picture of an almost rich or broke guy. Well, he could have split his money into multiple bets and enjoy the roulette game for a long time using, for example, Oscar's Grind. But no, he escaped the strategies and systems.
So, he enters the Plaza Hotel casino, thousands of flashes, hundreds of journalists trying to ask the last questions about his final decision before the "main event", crowds of gapers wanting to look at that crazy boy.
What would he bet on? Odds or evens? Red or Black? Highs or Lows? Dozens or columns? Maybe even straight-up?
Till the last second Ashley wanted to bet on black (well, fair enough the winning is 1/1) but moved all his stake to the red. "No more bets" and seconds of expectations...
The ball went down on the lower row, jumping and jumping, pockets of black and red colors and here it goes. Red 7.
Oh yeah! Ashley was so surprised, shocked, stunned or whatever the word is to describe his condition! He won!!! Now he can buy everything he needs x2.
$270,600 - no comments. But this guy appeared very sane person and said "thank you," tipped the dealer with $600 (of course, Ashley became his favorite after this) and left. No more gambling. He convinced it was a crazy deed of him and he certainly thought about losing all his money. The desire turned out to be stronger.
What can I say? Good job, Ashley!
