Please don't suggest Alan's son's five royals, as the claim wasn't made here and was walked back.

Are you positive it wasn't made here?

32 reds in a row at roulette. Saw it once and I was betting so definitely counted correct. Wasn't betting high because I figured the streak would end.

I don't believe you saw this on anything random.

I witnessed and played the 32 red run at Ceasars Atlantic City, second floor, live roulette table.

This would be circa 2012.

Incidentally, my memory of it is that good because it was such a unique event in my experience.

Anything similarly unique like 18 yo's or some 60 winning hands of blackjack should have a similar recall for those who experienced it in my opinion

I was just going to make a post to this effect. It really is the lowest of low probability outcomes even when you make a bunch of very conservative assumptions.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

I never discussed my son and his five video poker jackpots on this site until you brought it up.

Of course, I already predicted Alan will come up with something to defend and walk back that statement and will play word games.

Let's take a look.

Nice hits.

A couple of years ago my son hit five $1 royals (single line machines) in 24 hours but came home with a net loss. Each royal cost him about $4000.

I'm guessing you came back with a net profit?

If this was a standard VP machine. I just can't believe this.



various posts in between

Quote: AlanMendelson

What don't you believe? Five royals in 24 hours?

First one was at Gold Strike at Jean. Next four came on different machines at Caesars. All single line, $1 denom. Almost non stop play.

Since there are W2Gs as proof care to challenge me with a small wager?

This was talked about on various different threads and made its way to a different forum where it morphed into a 5k bet offer or something like that, and it got heated as Alan Insisted it happened.

Even now things don't jive with what Alan is saying and what his son told us. I'm fairly certain when his son told us what went down he didn't indicate he ever told Alan it was 5 Royals.

But I'm to believe 18 yo's and 20 bj losses in a row.

Alan mentioned something about an open mind.

If a renowned investigative reporter who has met presidents, and has many more achievements under his belt is so far off on something so easy to get the correct facts/ information regarding something he was so adamant about, how am I to believe all the other outrageous claims? Paint me out as the bad guy for pointing out all the crazy claims and not believing with an open mind, but then ask yourself, should you yourself believe?

I don't believe you (are still harassing Alan)

What are the odds against this kind of behavior existing?

I'm witnessing it, but I still don't believe it.

It was probably SOME 32 reds in a row. I highly doubt you seen THAT SOME 24,000,000,000 to 1 shot and yet no one reported it but you.
