Quite a few unfortunate people have lost their life savings in the casino. Degenerated gamblers whose emotions have gone wild, and finally, they sit there without a penny. Usually they lose their money gradually. They start with small bets and lose, and then gradually raise the wagers to win back what's lost.
Ashley Revell, however, did it a little differently. Back in 2004, he made a decision that he was going to gamble for everything he owned. Not little by little - all on one single bet. He sold everything he owned, and I mean everything.
When he entered the Las Vegas casino to wager his monetary life, he only had the money in casino chips and the clothes on his back.
He managed to scrape together a quite sizable sum, $135,300 to be more specific, and below you can watch a video of the most important roulette spin of Ashley Revell's life.
Why Choose American?
One thing that's a little peculiar is that Revell picked an American roulette wheel, which contains a double-zero. In doing so, the house gets a 5.26 % advantage instead of a 2.6 % edge that a European wheel with only one zero offers.
He gave the casino a $7,116 estimated profit instead of $3,517. But on the other hand, Revell wanted to gamble, that's for sure.
