Famous Gamblers

Gonzalo Garcia-Pelayo

He may have been a record producer at first, but he was smart enough to know nothing is done by luck. Since he was right in math, he has determined that not all roulette wheels are random. Even though that makes sense, no one cared to investigate it more. He studied all the hoops for hours to see which ones he could hack with the dealer’s bias. Once that was accomplished, he would go around all casinos and win money. Eventually, he made his way to Las Vegas, to earn a new profit there until he was known. From then, casinos took in mind the bias of the wheels and attempted to stop them.

Elmer Sherwin

He mostly played the slot machine because he was incredible in it! He made the jackpot more than once, which made his name go down in history. Elmer won around $4.6 million the first time. The second time Elmer earned $21 million, which was his last time playing the slot machine.

MIT Blackjack

The MIT Blackjack team used to believe in card counting, and that this would help them profit. Therefore they kept practising the art of counting until they mastered it. The team used to do mockup games on one another, so they are put in every situation. They ended up winning a lot of money!

Edward Thorp

After hearing about the card count, he decided to take it to the next level; he is their professor after-all! Edward became the master quickly, even better than the MIT Blackjack. His title as a professor helped him throughout the game since he had extra knowledge than the rest. Edward used the computer to determine the right code he needed then took it for testing. Surprisingly, instead of playing for the money, he just published a book out of it. The book still gave him money. This is shown that he only cared about science, having “Thorp Count”, be the title of the card counting.
