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.
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
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.
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.
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.
