The world's luckiest casino player of all time is arguably Charlie Wells, a man that broke the bank at Monte Carlo on two different occasions.
Upon entering the legendary Monte Carlo casino, Charlie Wells headed straight for the roulette table. He hunkered down at that table for 11 straight hours, during which he broke the bank 12 times (breaking the bank means winning more chips than are available at the table). During one point of the evening, Wells won an astonishing 23 times out of 30 wheel spins. When all was said in done, Wells left Monte Carlo with one million Francs.
Not content with his newly found fortune, Wells returned to the Monte Carlo a few months later for some more gambling. Again he sidled up to the roulette table, and over the course of three days he earned himself another one million Francs. Notably, the wheel once obliged his five consecutive bets on the number five by dropping the ball into the number five slot five times in a row.
Naturally, the Monte Carlo suspected Charlie Wells of cheating. However, despite hiring private detectives, Wells was never exposed as a cheater. Wells himself later admitted that there was no system; he had just gotten lucky. And for his miraculous lucky streak, Charlie Wells went down in history, and even had a song written about him – The Man Who Broke The Bank At Monte Carlo.
When I grow up I want to be like Charlie Wells!
