Maybe I'm missing something doesn't a number win pay 35 to 1?

So how is he making 100x?

Last I heard about this it wasnt dollars erous or pounds but local currency of the casino which made it a lot less impressive

I read another article that said he made a bunch of other bets on that same spin. The $35,000 was straight up, and he made several other split bets that also paid off.

EDIT: Actually I'm not sure if all of his bets total were $35,000, or just the straight up number. But he made multiple bets.

If he never gambles a day in his life again, he'll accomplish more than the vast majority of AP's. Think all that time studying, learning, practicing, and playing is worth it? Makes you wonder =P.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

In the video, which I had seen on facebook a while ago, you can see that they placed wagers on many of the possible possible spots that surrounded the number as well (or at least the double number adjacent wagers). I think it was 9 (or 5) total bets combined.

I had also heard it was 100,000 straight up which would make more sense... But who knows.

When I asked a couple roulette dealers in Vegas high-limit rooms about this back in February, they seemed incredulous at the idea of any casino taking that bet.
