Famous Quotes by Amarillo Slim

 • “II never go looking for a sucker.  I look for a champion and make a sucker out of him.”

•  “If you look around the table and don’t see a sucker, get up, because you’re the sucker.”  

•  “You can shear a sheep a hundred times but you can only skin it once.”

 

“Someone once asked me why women don’t gamble as much as men do and I gave the commonsensical reply that we don’t have as much money. That was a true but incomplete answer. In fact, women’s total instinct for gambling is satisfied by marriage.”
– 
Gloria Steinem

“If you’re committed to being a professional gambler, and you want to be the best you can be, you spend every waking moment trying to figure out a way to beat the game.”
– Billy Walters
Legendary Gambler
(from Richard Munchkin’s book, Gambling Wizards)

“Never call; either raise or put it down.”
– Ernest Hemingway

Classic Cheat
Isa Summers was very attractive and not your everyday casino cheat.  In the 1960’s and 70’s she reeled in tens of thousands of dollars using shiftiness and smarts; her specialities were ‘hand mucking’ and switching in ‘coolers’ at the blackjack table.

Gambling Joke
Two bored dealers are waiting around for someone to walk up and try their luck at the craps table. A very attractive lady comes in and wants to bet twenty-thousand dollars on a single roll of the dice. The dealers agree. She says, “I hope you don’t mind, but I feel much luckier when I’m half naked.” With that she strips naked from the waist down, and rolls the dice while yelling, “Momma needs a new pair of pants!” She then begins jumping up and down and hugging each of the dealers.
“YES! I WIN! I WIN!” With that she picks up her money and clothes and quickly leaves.The dealers just stare at each other dumbfounded. Finally one of them asks, “What did she roll anyway?” The other answers, “I don’t know. I thought YOU were watching the dice!”

Louis Colavecchio was a counterfeit – at counterfeit coins.  In the late 90s, law enforcement agencies from various states, the FBI and Secret Service included, descended on his home.  There, they found thousands of manufactured slot tokens from dozens of casinos throughout North America.  Colavecchio was an expert at duplicating anything made out f precious metals or stnes.

You’ve heard about the M-I-T Blackjack team?  Books have been written about it and ’21’, a major Hollywood movie chronicling the story came out in 2008.  What began as an after school club quickly became a refined gambling machine, assaulting casinos for years and for millions.  In the 90’s these brilliant students employed statistic-based systems and team play to their advantage.  The team’s wins were legendary, one weekend earning $400,000 alone.

Stable boy turned millionaire.  In March 2012, 29-year-old Irishman Conor Murphy placed the luckiest bet of his life at Cheltenham.  He wagered $75 on all five of his boss’s horses to win and, guess what, they did.  Murpjhy scooped a stunning pot of $1.5 million in the accumulator.

The 1913 Kentucky Derby produced the longest shot in the history of the race when 91-to-1 outsider Donerail claimed victory.   One hundred years ago, those putting $2 on Donerail would have collected $184.90.

Incredible!  Jockey Frankie Dettori left bookmakers with their jaws dropped in 1996 when he won all seven races at the Ascot Festival in the United Kingdom at odds of 25,000-to-1.  Darren Yeats placed a £59 ($89) accumulator bet on all of Dettori’s races and it paid off, big time.  Yeats took home £550,000 ($830,000) richer.

Grandma ‘Golden Arm’ – Roulette Ringer – Clocking the Wheel

Hey High Rollers, a couple fo interesting gambling tidbits for you today; the story of a New Jersey grandma who beat trillion-to-1 odds, roulette player who hit three times in a row at odds of more than 54,000-to-1…and what gamblers call ‘Clocking’ the wheel…great stuff!  Enjoy.

The Grandma who Beat Odds of a Trillion to 1?

www.highrollerradio.net

We thank truecasinostories.com for this one.  It happened in 2009, May 23rd to be exact, at the Borgata in Atlantic City and it was sensational.  The greatest Craps roll ever.

Patricia Demauro, a grandmother from New Jersey, on her usual night out at the casino went on the roll of a lifetime.  Playing her favorite game, Craps, Demauro had the incredulous crowd in stitches and those at the table with her smiling as she went the lucky streak of a lifetime, shooting dice for, are you ready for this, four hours and 18 minutes before crapping out…that’s 154 rolls!  Wow.  She began with 100 bucks and kept rolling and rolling and while it’s unknown exactly how much she made you can bet those around her cashed in and big.  Fours hours 18 minutes…, it’s the longest roll in craps history and a feat that forced hotel management to break out the bubbly.

Now, the odds of throwing a 7 are 1 in 6, 1 in 7…doing it 157 straight times, without landing on the most common number when two dice are tossed, seven, is a trillion to one.

The previous best at the craps table was rolled by a man named Fujitake back in 1989…they called him Golden Arm…and every year since his famous roll, a club that sprang up, called the Golden Arm Club,  members gather to celebrate Fujitake and that legendary feat.

A grandma named Patricia and a man named Fujitake…history’s greatest Rollers, make that High Rollers, at the craps table today on High Roller Radio.

Lady Luck at Beau Rivage

At Beau Rivage Casino, a woman placed a $5 chip on #36 at the Roulette wheel and HIT the longshot at 38-to-1 (even though it pays 35-to-1) for $175.  She collected her money and left a $5 chip on the same number.  Unbelievably, when the ball stopped bouncing it landed on #36 again.  Wow.  She won another $175 with this deeper longshot, nailing the number twice in a row, at 1,400-to-1.  Again, she collected her money and left a $5 chip on what, by now, has to be her favorite number and, you guessed it, hit it again, for a third straight spin at odds of 54,872-to-1!  This time, she pocketed the $175 and called it a day.  Three in a row!  Now, that’s a High Roller. 

Roulette Wheel Bias

Albert R. Hibbs, a noted mathematician, and fellow graduate Roy Walford, took time away from school and went to Nevada.  The year was 1949 and their aim was to study roulette wheel bias at casinos in Las Vegas and Reno.  Some roulette wheels are not properly balanced causing the ball to land in certain areas on the wheel more than others.  Hibbs and Walford were able to exploit that their mathematical “edge” to the tune of $42,000.

Note:  Nowadays, larger casinos avoid roulette wheel bias by recording every spin on a computer program, which analyzes the data and reports any bias to management.  The wheel is then serviced or replaced.
