While I enjoy playing poker and visiting Casinos I only ever spend what I can afford to lose. However on the last 3 times visiting Casinos in the UK, before leaving I would always place a single bet on Roulette on a single number betting £25 each time. All 3 times I won on different numbers selected at random in a single bet. The strangest was the 4th time when I was visiting Las Vegas and decided to try my luck in the home of gambling. Upon arriving at my hotel with Casino I placed my 1st bet of £25 ($30), selecting another random number and luck would have it I won again... Paid for my wedding and honeymoon. Now what are the odds for that ?
