The Luckiest Roulette Winners of All Time

As any casino-goer will know, roulette has the power to reward and frustrate even seasoned players. If you’re not one for roulette systems, there is only one way to win at the wheel – and that’s with lady luck by your side.

So, to show you how it’s done, we’ve rounded up the all-time luckiest roulette players, below. Prepare to have your mind blown….

Philip Green – £2 million

Fashion mogul, Sir Philip Green, is well-known for racking up chips in London’s top casinos, but few would expect this billionaire to come top of the roulette biggest winners list.

One of his luckiest sessions came one December, when Green took a trip to a Mayfair casino. A few hours later, Green had pocketed a mind-boggling £2 million – an amount large enough to trigger a profit warning at the casino.

After walking away from the roulette wheel with a hefty pay cheque in hand, the billionaire was quoted as saying, “I had a fantastic night at the tables.”

We’d hope so, Philip…

Mike Ashley – £820,000

As if multi-billionaire Mike Ashley didn’t already have enough wonga in his bank, a win at a London casino in 2008, saw him increase his wealth considerably. It was on this evening that Ashley pulled up a pew at the roulette table and developed a fondness for the number 17.

Ashley placed a series of ‘complete bets’, where each bet included successful combinations of the number 17. After just fifteen minutes, the sports tycoon scooped a whopping £820,000.

Chris Boyd – £166,000

Unlike the other big names on our list, Chris Boyd is a relative nobody. However, this didn’t stop him racking up a stellar £166k at the roulette wheel in 1994.

With $220,000 (£160k) in his pocket, he was ready to take on Binion’s Horseshoe Casino in Las Vegas, a casino which lifted their $100k bet limit so that he could play. Unfortunately for the casino, this would turn out to be a huge mistake, as Boyd, who put all his money on red, would go home with double the amount he wagered. Today, the roulette maestro hasn’t bet with any of his earnings and is yet to chase red again.

Ashley Revell – £153,680

This story begins at Revell’s local pub. It was here that Revell told his fellow hopheads that he would sell his life savings and put their accumulated wealth on a single spin of the roulette wheel. So far, so crazy – yet that’s exactly what he did!

After counting his £76,480 cash at the end of his challenge, this ballsy roulette player was ready to take on the Plaza Hotel & Casino. Revell plumped for an even bet on ‘Red’, and luckily for him, the ball fell on the number 7, earning the English gambler £153,680.

And to think: he could have just gone home with a sore head and a takeaway!

Sean Connery – £20,000

You may know him as 007, but in 1963 he was better known for another number. Much like Mike Ashley, Connery took a likening to the number 17. Sitting down at the roulette table in Casino de la Vallée, Italy, the James Bond star put a total of five bets on this arbitrary number.

While his first two bets missed, his third, fourth and fifth spin all hit 17! With accumulated odds of 50,000/1, it was an astounding streak of luck for the Hollywood star. We imagine even the cool-headed Connery must have cracked a smile after this one…

    I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is [email protected] and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
