Luckiest Man of 2017 (so far)

As originally reported in Daily Mail UK : Brazilian businessman Pedro Grendene Bartelle – was still in New Year’s celebration mode, partying at Hotel Conrad in Punta del Este, Uruguay – when hit hit it really big at the roulette wheel.

While showing off for his friends, and other onlookers, Bartelle bet $35,000 on a single number of the roulette wheel.

Just seconds later, he was $3.5 million richer as his number hit and the whole room erupted in celebration.

The moment was captured on video and you can see it here :

While Bartelle may be rich in his own right, as president of Brazilian shoe company Vulcabras-Azaleia, and nephew of Brazil’s richest man, an extra $3.5 mil never hurts!

Betting $35,000 on roulette may not be everyone’s idea of fun, but offers a convenient venue to those who want to enjoy the excitement of the roulette wheel (as well as blackjack table, slots, and more) from the comfort of their home.
