Ashley Revell made a name for himself as one of the world’s luckiest Roulette winners. In 2004 Ashley sold all of his personal belongings and took that money with him to Las Vegas to make one bet. He arrived in Vegas with a tidy sum of $135 300 and a documentary crew.
With his parents and siblings by his side, he approached the Roulette tables and all of his cash from the sale of his personal belongings which he had converted to casino chips. He placed his bet on red and hit it on lucky number 7 leaving the casino with double his life savings. With his winnings, he established an online poker site called Poker United. Later a documentary was made about Ashley called Double or Nothing.
Joseph Jagger and Charles Wells
Joseph Jagger was a Roulette player who bagged a whopping $400 000 win in the 1870s which is equivalent to $7 million today. He devised what he called the “team” system in Monte Carlo. How it worked was he had 6 guys examine the Roulette wheel and, on their findings, he concluded that certain numbers came up more often than others, hence bagging a hefty win. A couple of years later Charles Wells used the same system and won 2 million francs in two days and today he is still known as the man that broke the bank in Monte Carlo.
Cynthia Jay was a cocktail waitress in Vegas and was always willing to pick up extra shifts so she could save for her wedding. She lived in a one-bedroom apartment and overall lived a very modest life which all changed on the 26th of January 2000 when she won the largest slot jackpot of $35 million on the Megabucks machine on a bet of $21.
