The elderly woman

This grandmother was just enjoying her time at a craps table in Atlantic City. What transpires next is an unbelievable statistic of how $10 can get you 154 won throws. It’s just luck; so she says, given how impossible it was to win that amount of throws.

The actor namesake

It pays to have your wits about you when entering casinos. In the case of this man, he negotiated with the house to pay him 20 percent of the paybacks for every high-rolling spree he did in their casino. Talk about the house being played.

The proud grandfather

It’s one thing to be proud of your family; it’s another to bet on them. This grandfather bet that his grandson would play in the World Cup—the grandson was a part of the national team—and the house agreed to 2500:1 odds. A good amount, especially if you won.

The moon walker

Just about anything can be betted on, including man’s landing on the moon. This man bet 1000:1 that humanity will waltz onto the lunar atmosphere before 1971. To his pleasant surprise—perhaps—man did walk on the moon. He has JFK to thank for his winnings.

It’s fun to read these success stories, but know that gambling should only be done in jest. It’s important to note that life is the biggest gamble of all—a bet you must absolutely win.
