#2: Lucky Number Five
Some of us think gambling is a waste of money, while others love the thrill of it all. The guy who shared this story recollected the first time he visited a casino and won big time. He went to a casino with his dad with $50 in his pocket. They had agreed ahead of time that they would play their $50 and then go home. He was playing his last $5 at the roulette table, ready to call it a day, when every gambler’s dream happened.
He bet his $5 chip on the number five- and won. He was feeling good, so he played the number five again with his new winnings. The ball landed on 5 again! By this point, he was thinking, “Eh, what the heck,” so he kept playing the same number to see what would happen. Miraculously, the ball landed on the same number FOUR times in a row. He ended up winning over $40,000! The funniest part? He hasn’t stepped foot in a casino since.
