Vegas roulette wheel reportedly hits seven straight 19s

Published June 20, 2012


A professional poker player reportedly saw something against all odds — or 114 billion to 1, at least — at a Vegas casino this week.

The Las Vegas Sun reports that professional poker player Jeff Romano took a photo of a roulette wheel display screen depicting the No. 19 hitting on seven consecutive spins. According to the website Beyond the Best, the odds of a number hitting seven times in succession are 114 billion to 1.

Romano posted a photo of the wheel’s display on his Twitter page on Monday while playing at the Rio in Las Vegas.

Caesars Entertainment declined to respond to requests by the newspaper when asked if the wheel has been tested to ensure properly calibration.
