Twenty seven winnings in a row

Dice game has been being popular gambling within the centuries. The rules of such competitions were thought up several centuries ago, however they are still actual. Despite the deceptive simplicity of dice, it needs certain skills, talents and abilities.

One of the most significant cases of dice winning happened in 1950. An American sailor who arrived from his journey decided to have a rest in a nearby casino. He paid his attention to the dice game among all the tables presented there. Perhaps, the sailor felt he would have a good luck or just couldn’t play other games.

Lucky American managed to win dice 27 times in a row. It is estimated that the probability of such success is about 1 out of 12 million cases. The main disappointment of that evening was a small winning - just 750 dollars. The matter is that sailor played small bets and didn’t manage to collect a bigger sum. Later it became obvious that his winning could become maximum in the history of gamblings – 268 million dollars if he would prefer high bets. However despite such insignificant prize, that American became famous.
