In this story, the rich get even richer. A billionaire businessman from Brazil named Pedro Grendene Bartelle wagered in roulette almost a whopping $35,000 on number 32 at the casino of the Hotel Conrad located in Punta del Este, Uruguay.
That lone bet he made on the roulette has made him even richer after the spin when the ball landed on his chosen number, and he won $1,225,000! The lucky player [...] Read more » Gambler bet $35K on Roulette, won $1.2 Million in Uruguay Casino

lucky pedro, now reading the last sentence that he is continuing his family’s legacy kinda makes the picture clearer- to rephrase this he was born in a shirt and is just spending millions that his family made, no problems here, he can do whatever he wants with his money, though this story is pr of massive scale, probably he made 100's of similar filmed bets before he finally landed one... just that were cut out of the picture to make pedro look cool.

what a huge win,but with this kind of bet,its not much!who know how many same big bets he had in past,so maybe this isnt big win for him!but its very nice to win over million on one bet!I never like roulette much!
Since he's a billionaire then that $35,000 bet is like a $3.50 bet for us so I'm not really surprised by the man's amount he bet with surprised that he hit his number which is a big surprise I mean especially when you bet on only one number

We just know he won million, but we never know if someone or he lost how much, lol.How many people rich from gambling ? I know so many people bankcrupt cause gambling. Anyway he in lucky moment just bet one number and hit it
there is a Russian proverb: "money to money" in translationit slightly so it sounds like the original but the meaning is the same ... that's another confirmation of this saying ... this is certainly possible to win this Pedro lost a lot more, but his have billions for it is no problem

Wow amazing amount of money to win on a roulette table and especially in one bet, in my country no one would allow bets of 35 thousand, we can bet 1 thousand at most, so no chance of me repeating this mans success. Really big money, over 1 million in one spin wow amazing.

Gambler indeed, from the ones that dont care at all for that amount of money. It wouldnt be s surprise if that bet wasnt his first one, or that he wont give it all back to the casino at some point Ant we are getting mad for a few euro bets
Yeah, nobody mentions how much money he potentially lost previously by doing the same thing at random in different venues. By the way why would you gamble at all if you are already a billionaire? Makes no sense, boredom could be cured in so many better ways.

The old saying, money makes money, definitely applies here. This has got to be one of the stupidest, and luckiest, bets i have seen. I think the Casino would take this bet every time because it would very rarely pay

this is only record for that casino and not for that player!if he can bet 35000 $ per spin,that says all!so this million isnt something special for him!its good to win,but when you lost few bets like this,you can just back money with 1,2 $!

well the answer to the question "why would a billionaire do such a thing?" is a good one and the only few answers that spring into my mind are: hew was high, he was drunk, combination of high and drunk, he lacked interest from the public towards his humble persona, or as i mentioned considering that he basically inherited his business, he's just used to this lifestyle, just wasn't posting previously

Well, congratulations, but for a super-rich businessman like Pedro, $1.2 million will be a trivial amount of money. I am sure he got hell of a lot of attention from other gamblers and employees in the casino.

Then just keep sleeping with 10/10 instagram bitches on your yacht in the french riviera - that probably gives the same amount of satisfaction and adrenalin yet does not cost nearly as much as going from casino to casino out of boredom.
hahahaha, I'm sure the owners of the casino must have been checking the security cameras at that moment and be like what?! This guy is richer than us and he comes to luckbox away our money?
Of course 1.2 millions is nothing to the guy and we don't know how much he lost before he won that amount but still, to bet 35k$ on one number at roulette you have to be a little bit crazy, billionaire or not they know it's the price of a brand new car they could give to someone they love...

For every one guy like this there will be 2.9 million who walk out a loser. The casino always wins. It's a hugely profitable business not a game or charity. People lose everything including family and house over their addiction to gambling.This guy, Pedro Grendene Bartelle has more money than sense! Don't care that he was a winner, just a stupid move on his part.
