Red or black, double or nothing


2004, online live dealer casinos were at start and there wasn’t to many options as there are today. People mostly had to travel to landbased casinos to play. In 2004 was year when British professional gambler Ashley Revell played all in on roulette. He sold all his possessions, including his clothes, and to go for the ultimate bet. He gambled $135,300 on a SINGLE spin of a roulette wheel in the landbased Plaza Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. This event was filmed by Sky One as a reality mini-series titled Double or Nothing.

Revell placed his bet on red, the ball landed on 7 red, and Revell had doubled his money to $270,600. Everybody waited for new bets, but he gave $600 to a dealer as a tip, said, “thank you!” and left the casino.

Revell used this money to set up his own online poker company called Poker UTD.
