Luck

About the casino in Monte Carlo for more than 100 years, there are legends, the hero of one of which was the luckiest player in casino history. Forever known as “the man who broke the bank in Monte Carlo” Charles Wells once in July 1891 went to the casino, and came out of there a legend.

The story of Charles Wells…

Once again confirming the idea that fortune is more favorable to the brave than to the righteous, Welles took a round sum to place his bets in Monte Carlo, deceiving investors with his tales about the never-existing invention – “music rope”. H.G. H.G. simply escaped with £4,000, who, like other crooks and gamblers in his place, decided that roulette is the smartest investment.


The luckiest win in casino history…

Surprisingly, in this case, H.G. was right. H.G. played roulette for eleven consecutive hours (including the period when he won more than 20 spins out of 30), disrupting the bank (of course, it didn’t bankrupt the casino, but the staff had to order new chips to the table) 12 times and won a million francs. Later Charlie Wells came back and won another million, and what caught his attention was the number 5 five times in a row.


The man who blew up the bank…

No one has ever figured out what kind of system H.G. H.G. used to attract luck, and to this day they admit that maybe it’s a very, very big luck. In 1892, Fred Gilbert wrote the song “The Man who Busted the Bank at Monte Carlo” to perpetuate the exploits of H.G. Wells.
