A true classic: Ashley Revell bets all his money on one roulette spin

Tags: ashley revell, casino, las vegas, Plaza Hotel and Casino.
Posted on 03 June 2010 by "T".

Ashley Revell, 32, sold everything he had, including clothes, in order to gather up as much money as possible so he could place it on one single bet on the roulette wheel in Las Vegas. He became world famous over a night after that the media started to write about him. Everyone wanted to know more about this crazy guy.

Even though his parents didn't like the whole idea - they still decided to come along to Vegas and give him their support. It ended up being Plaza Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas that Ashley was going to place the bet. People from TV, radio and newspapers were all there that day to watch him bet his whole life on one roulette spin. 

After that the casino manager had informed him about the rules and the wheel was spun, he put in $135,300 on Red. His mother started crying while others were screaming "go red". Even though a game of roulette only takes a few seconds - it must have felt like forever for Ashley. However, just a few seconds after the wheel was spun the ball came to rest on Red 7. Ashley Revell had made it! He had doubled his money and won $270,600. He was so happy that he tipped the dealer $600 before he left the casino. He brought $272,000 with him back to England and decided to invest the money in his own website instead of gambling it all away.

Looks like a kind of "game show" though...
 Davoodoo03/06/2010 18:59:23 GMT

It is not a fake yup. He made his own online poker site. I think if you would search a little, you would find out the name of that site also

Crazy or cool ?? How many people would do the same ? Not me for sure, I have got a family and children to grow up Blink
 jessthehuman04/06/2010 02:22:48 GMT
v old video. lol news?
 youngbaboon04/06/2010 08:05:41 GMT
$135,300 isn't enough to invest in a website?
 NaziPal04/06/2010 09:27:44 GMT
That's what i call a good CALCULATED risk! That's really how we should approach gambling games, it's like a dip and rise in the stock market. You should go in and out!!!
 Pjot04/06/2010 09:33:08 GMT
I wonder what he would have done if he had lost? Anybody knows if he had any plans for that eventuality? A shotgun? Shock
 mazas04/06/2010 09:45:58 GMT
omg yes crazy that was but still if tv and over was there we can also say that it can be big promo becouse he come there all the world know it he just put on red and won it and just come home with his money its strange and i think its lasvegas casino promo here they doubled that man but at this night they won more then loose i think Smile

good luck all and still i think its promo was here

I said last time this vid was posted in this forum, if this was real then the guy is not gambling as much as you'd think. If he loses, he only has to sell his story to make some decent money. I wouldn't even be surprised if the casino decided to give him his money back since the publicity generated for the casino would be huge. Both the guy and the casino have got much more out of this.

Plus, if you think about it the guy had better odds than the usual black/red since the business he created from his winnings was guaranteed to have great publicity. He has therefore more than doubled his stake.
 testdrive0504/06/2010 18:52:22 GMT
Ya its real alright, there was a bbc hour long show all about it from the beggining over a year ago. He made a deal to "sell" his name for 17k of the money he raised to do promos for the company for 2 years after he made the bet win or lose.
 danidoyle16/11/2010 18:48:31 GMT
Haha its a genius bet really tho! win/lose everyone was going to be a winner in this situation!! Some balls to do it!!
 gatorcountry16/11/2010 19:14:54 GMT
This kind of reminds me of Stu Ungar. Just the way Stus life was a gamble and he would always gamble right down to his last dollar. This is an amazing story though. Kind of makes you wonder what would have happened if he had lost.
 gaupiz16/11/2010 22:07:23 GMT
Oh my God! Cant imagine how he felt waiting for the right coulor. I played roulette too, but this way must have felt like russian roulette.... Life or death....
Lucky guy though Blink
 dule-vu17/11/2010 01:21:14 GMT
this is so sick decision for me!you must have balls to do something like this(if its true),but I couldnt sold everything,put on red and then wait what will happen!so sick...

some ppl say it's a fake.

Fake or not, why even mention such a lowroller? Confused
