I was dealing on a roulette table when this kid walked up, dragging his luggage behind him. I checked his I.D. and he just turned 22 years old the other day; he had come to Las Vegas as a birthday gift to himself. I wished him a happy birthday and he said to me, “I have to be at the airport in an hour. Since I have some time to spare I thought I would bet my last chip.” He pulled out a green chip and placed it on top of number 15, his birthday. “Are you sure you want to bet that much money on one number? I can give you smaller chips.” I said. “No, I’m good.” He replied. So I spun the ball and it hopped right into 15! I paid him a total of $875. I thought he would leave after that but instead he put a second green chip on top of the first. Now he had $50 on number 15. I spun the ball again and 15 hit for a second time in a row! I paid him $1,750 for a total of $2,625 in 5 minutes. Amazing. He thanked me, tipped me $100 and took the money. He told me, “I’m keeping my first green chip as a souvenir, it must be lucky!” He left with a huge smile on his face.
