Win or Lose – Biggest Roulette Results in History

Famous Roulette Wins and Losses: Tales of High Stakes and Big Payouts

Roulette is a dynamic game that is filled with excitement, dynamism, and admittedly – the eventual disappointment. Yet, for its fickle nature, roulette is also a mighty fun title to try. Whether you are playing at an American roulette table or trying your hand at the more traditional European or even French roulette, this is a game that simply feels fun and fulfilling from start to end! Today, we take a look at some of the most interesting outcomes on the roulette table.

Drake Who Is Not Risk-Averse

Drake, the Canadian rapper who has a soft spot for all things gambling, has been very passionate about roulette in particular. He has bene actively gambling, using his Twitch streams for the most part, although switching to Kick more or less in recent months, to show himself play and win – and lose. One of the most notable roulette on-screen achievements by the man, though, will definitely go down in history as the most formidable achievement he has ever made.

The amount he won was actually $12 million, which was pretty impressive. Drake was ebullient on camera as he couldn’t believe his luck indeed, and some luck that was! Drake is often teased for what he has become to gamblers in the world – “the curse.” This is a reference to his supposedly bad luck when it comes to gambling, and specifically when it comes to sports betting (not roulette!).

Yet, the Drake curse did not claim his money in this $12 million victory of roulette. It’s certainly one of the most impressive amounts that has ever been won in a game of roulette – both physical and online.

The Group of Friends Who Won

Right, so this one is nothing special – just a group of friends who visited a casino and walked away with a huge pay day to their name! The group of friends was filmed and posted on social media winning $3.6 million off a single roulette spin. Is this a good overall strategy? We don’t think so!

Was it super fun to see these people actually hit the right number and win the colossal sum? We absolutely think so! If there is one thing about the game of roulette is that there is the opportunity to share the joy of the game with others, and the social media clip really captured this emotion spilling over the entire table.

The Man Who Bet It All

Yes, there is a story of a man actually venturing to sell all of his possessions for a chance to hit the right number and win massively. This is the story of Ashley Revell, a British citizen who said that he had enough. He sold up everything he got and went to Las Vegas with a single mission in mind – bet it all on red and see what happens.

Left with nothing to his name except $135,000, Revell didn’t hesitate to plonk it all down on the outcome of a roulette. The wheel spun and the crowd quieted down to only erupt into cheer moments after. Revell had just doubled his money, $270,000, but he knew that it was a one-time thing he had pulled off. He decided to not risk it again and instead collected the money to use them to open a company, which he did!

The Avid Gambler

Then, there is the story of Harry Kakavas. The man has been known for his losing streaks, and he actually accumulated $1 billion in net losses over gambling. Now, it’s not exactly clear how much of that money was lost to roulette specifically, but Mr Kakavas was not a person who backed down from the challenge of playing high-stakes roulette as he did. As a result, he is known as one of history’s biggest “losers” when it comes to gambling only!
