World's Record Tied at Caesars Palace

18 July 2000

Here's a true story, and I saw it happen. At Caesars Palace, on July 14, 2000, at 1:35 p.m., the number 7 came up six times in a row at Roulette Wheel #211. To figure the odds of such an occurrence, multiply 38 X 38 X 38 X 38 X 38 X 38, or THREE BILLION TO ONE! The dealer said it was the first time he had seen this in his 27-year career.

Another sidelight. After the ball landed on 7 four times, the floor supervisor told the pit boss, "I'll bet you a million dollars that it won't come up again." Then here it came again, and again.

How much money did the table lose? A whopping $300.
