It is very curious to know which players have been lucky enough to win large amounts of money playing casino in the world. That is why, we will share below a brief history of the best casino players in their entire history:
Archie Karas: His story begins in 1992 when he asked his best friend for $ 10,000 to go play at the Binion in Las Vegas. There began his great success in becoming one of the best casino players. His first earnings were in poker, facing the best poker players of the moment. So much so, that the sum of $ 10,000 raised it to $ 17.000.000.
Stanley Fujitake: He was a normal player at the Hotel-Casino California in Las Vegas, until one day chance came in a game of dice.
Fujitake set the world record for craps rolls (118), after spending three hours and five minutes rolling the dice. The most interesting fact is that he started the game with $ 5 and in one hour he was already betting $ 1,000, the maximum amount of the table. In total, the casino had to pay nearly $ 1.000.000 thanks to the fate of Stanley Fujitake, who has since earned the nickname "the golden arm."
Kerry Packer: The Australian billionaire and media star gambled with the highest bets allowed, always trying to be allowed to further increase the wager. He made huge profits of around $ 30.000.000 at the MGM Grand in 1997. And another $ 5.000.000 at UK casinos.
Antonio Esfandiari: took home the highest prize awarded in a live tournament in the history of poker in the 2012 World Series of Poker, at Event 55 - The Big One for One Drop. In that great event, the player took more than $ 18.000.000, in addition to an exclusive platinum bracelet that was awarded to him as the winner.
His first big win was at the LA Poker Classic on the World Poker Tour circuit, where he made $ 1.400.000 and to date accumulates more than $ 23.000.000 in winnings, including only live tournaments.
