Official company statement follows an avalanche of questions
Caesars Entertainment, the owner of Las Vegas casino Rio, claim that the recent event when a roulette wheel hit the same number seven consecutive times was just a "diagnostic test".
The story was quickly spread as the spectators managed to photograph the 114 billion-to-one event and put the images on internet. According to the casino visitors present at the time, 12 out of 16 spins were either nineteens or twenties.
"There was no one playing at that table. It was just a diagnostic test being done," a Rio spokesman stated despite the company’s initial attempt to remain silent on Thursday, the Detroit News report.
