The biggest loss I ever saw was a guy playing solo on a craps table a few years ago. He was betting $600 line bets with $3K in odds, and 2-3 come bets with the same amount. He was working on becoming the chairman of the donating committee. He took $25K markers about every 15-20 minutes. I watched for 4 markers, and I couldn't take any more. I talked to a dealer the next morning - he apparently went through $200K before he left.
If government is the answer, it must have been a very stupid question.

There is a baseball pitcher at the casino I go to that one of the floor managers told me lost 1.4 million over 3 days playing black jack.

They also told me a story about a guy recently that bought in with a 25K marker and was down $8,000 and he said he wasn't leaving until he made his 8K back. He lost $100,000 trying to win back his $8,000

I was also on a craps table with this high roller that had $2,000 on every number and $5,000 in odds behind his $100 passline bet and the table was just point-7, point-7. As a joke I told him to make a $500 Come bet, a reference to the opening scene in the movie The Gambler where Axel makes a $500 come bet and they roll aces. He puts $500 on the come, and they roll a 7 so he won his $500 come bet but lost about $15K in action.

Folks who fight a long Bank or Player at the baccarat tables.
Folks who constantly throw huge bets at those sucker side bets like the Tie, Pairs, Panda 8 and Dragon 7.

I remember the first time I saw a huge number of brownies disappear at a low limit table at the Wynn in December 2012. With the amount that Euro whale lost one could go ahead and buy a new Ferrari!

This is a really sad discussion. I only enjoy watching people lose money when they are good sports about it. I never enjoy watching people lose money that they had no business gambling with in the first place. This often happens to people who believe (falsely) in systems and find out the hard way that they don't work.

Shed not for her the bitter tear Nor give the heart to vain regret Tis but the casket that lies here, The gem that filled it Sparkles yet

I only enjoy watching people lose money when they're being jerks about it. When people are such good sports is when I pain for them the most.

A few years ago, it was when 3 Card everywhere paid 40-30-6-4-1 on Pairs Plus. My brother in law and I were at a table when this woman sat down, late 30s or so. Tight jeans, fake melons, used to be really good looking. what bikers call "rode hard and put away wet." And she looked kind of like a biker chick. She was really, really drunk. She signed for a marker of $10000 and started betting black chips, and for the next 45 minuted won HUGE. straight flush, straights flushes and pairs every hand, just bang-bang-bang, every hand it seemed. She was tipping big, making bets for other players, good table with everyone whooping it up. She eventually cashed out for some ridiculous number for a 3 Card table, north of $20k, scooped her chips into her purse and wobbled away.

We kept playing for a while, then went and played something else, then saw her over at a craps table. We went over to have some more fun, and got there just in time to see her toss her last $100 on boxcars. She shrugged, pushed away from the table and stumbled away. This was at Caesar's AC, or maybe Tropicana. I got the feeling she was a known actor there.

That loss will typically win you five figures now.



Unfortunately most of AC requires some sort of quad to qualify I think. So does tunica and some rooms in St. Louis.
