Roulette Famous Players

While roulette looks simple to play, not very many people have had much success with it because of its inherent house edge advantage.

Joseph Jagger

Roulette has a lot international glamour both for the fact that it is popular among casino players and that it has produced some astonishing wins. Many people try their hands on given it requires little strategy or skill mastery. It is with such mentality that many have approached it and lost that the few outstanding cases must just be recognized.

Joseph Jagger brought the Monte Carlo Casino to a stand still back in 1873 when he won a six figure prize which at that time was beyond imagination and had never been heard in the casino history. Joseph's case was not a pure luck as is the game with roulette today but was an exploitation of some machine bias which he discovered and made use of to win astounding figures repeatedly. Joseph took a lot of time betting on the casino with his friend just to ensure that he had fully understood how the fault worked on one wheel to favor some result.

In theory roulette is a game of fair chance but in reality and especially on real wheel certain factors like calibration issues, wear and tear, friction, or just slight luck of uniformity somewhere can cause some numbers to be more favored than others. The online versions may never experience such kind of problems because of the random number generators. Real casinos today try as much as possible to study winning trends on roulette wheels to ensure they are fair and calibration is done more frequently to avoid costly mistakes. He did not use some roulette strategies.

Charles Wells

Charles Wells was another success story at roulette. His case was very similar to Jagger's case in that he took advantage of the same Monte Carlo Casino and exactly the same machine where Joseph Jagger had won to also walk away with a huge prize. It was apparent the machine was inherently faulty and while the casino thought it was rectified after Joseph's case the fault line reemerged and the casino was hit twice in a terrible manner. You can read about him in the roulette books.

Gonzalo Garcia-Pelayo

This is a more case of success story with a man who pent much of his time studying much of roulette wheels in Madrid Spain and put the same tricks used by his predecessors to test and succeeded largely. It is said that he used a number of family members around casinos in Europe looking for similar opportunities and ended up in Las Vegas with the same tricks. He retired from casino games in 1994 ostensibly due to stress he suffered in his endeavors to cheat the wheel.

Ashley Revell

Ashley put his entire life savings of up to $100,000 to chance by betting on a red and was luckily rewarded though his is believed to be pure luck in which case he could as well loose and end up with up nothing.
