I was dealing roulette and I had only one player at my table for most of the day. It was this big black guy who always played 18. He played other numbers as well but he always put the most money on 18. After a while, he lost $300 and started to walk away. He stopped; waited for a minute like he was thinking about something and then said, “Aw, screw it” as he pulled a black chip out of his pocket. He put the entire black chip on number 18. “Are you sure you want to bet $100 on one number?” I asked. “Yea” he replied. (Now, the reason why I have to ask is because if the player is betting $25 chips or more on the inside of the roulette table the cameras are supposed to be called so they can watch.) So after my floorman called the eye-in-the-sky I spun the ball and astonishingly it hit 18. He won $3,500 on that one bet. He was so happy he screamed “Now I’m up $400!” “What?” I asked confused. “I had lost $3,100 just for today and now I’m ahead by $ 400. This is great!” He had a huge smile on his face.
