Could the Roulette wheel spin in your favour?

Could the Roulette wheel spin in your favour?

Do you have a favourite number you always place a wager on within a game of Roulette? Or do you stick to even money bets located around the edge of the table?

With the wheel having spun more times than the earth, whether you’ve played in person at a land-based establishment or on an online casino Roulette game, has the wheel ever spun in your favour and granted you a win?

For some, Lady Luck sits next to them, granting their prediction, whereas others are yet to be greeted by her at the Roulette table. With this in mind, we’ve collated just two of the many players Lady Luck has sprinkled her magic on within a spin or two of the iconic wheel.

Read on to find out more.

Ashley Revell

Would you dare sell everything you own, including your home, car and expensive watch, to fly to Las Vegas and place it all down on one bet on the Roulette wheel? Well, this is exactly what Ashley Revell did in 2004.

After selling everything he had, Revell flew to Vegas and placed down a wager of $135,000 on an outside even money bet, red.

Leaving his fate down to Lady Luck and the Roulette wheel, Revell, along with players around the table watching, waited in anticipation to see whether or not he was about to lose it all or double his money. The ball bounced around the spinning wheel before landing in pocket number seven, which luckily for Revell, is red.

Revell turned his $135,000 into $270,000 with one single spin of the iconic wheel.

Pedro Grendene Bartelle

A more recent win within the Roulette history books, took place in January 2017, when the owner of the third largest footwear company in Latin America, Pedro Grendene Bartelle, walked into the Hotel Conrad casino floor in Punta del Este, Uruguay, and decided to place a straight bet on number 32.

A straight bet is an inside bet type, which is the name given for when a player places a wager on a single number within the Roulette table. A straight bet holds a payout of 35:1.

Bartelle placed a wager worth $35,000 on number 32, and to his delight, the ball landed in pocket number 32. In an instant, $35,000 turned into $3.5 million.

What makes this more of a surprising win, is the fact that the winning spin, thanks to the ever-advancing technology, was caught on video by a spectator in the crowd around the Roulette table. In the video you can see Bartelle and friends jumping for joy when they spot the ball land in pocket 32.

From looking at both Revell and Bartelle’s winning stories, it just goes to show no matter your circumstance, Lady Luck could be standing right next to you at the table, whether you’re playing online from the comfort of your sofa or with friends at one of the many casino venues around the world. But, its always good to remember, that winning is never guaranteed and you should only wager what you can afford to potentially lose, as Roulette is a game of chance and prediction.
