I’m not a huge fan of gambling. Sure, I’ll go to the casino for fun, and hit up Vegas for a weekend with a buddy or two for an adventure we’ll never talk about with our S/O’s, but I don’t like to bet large. For me, it’s not worth the risk. I know that the house always wins, so I don’t put myself in a position to wager more than I can afford, and risk losing it all.
That said, the vast majority of people don’t subscribe to that. They’ll bet it all, hoping for a big payday. Barring that, they might even try to come up with a devious scheme to rob a casino and become a millionaire overnight. While you’d think that’s the stuff of myth and legend, it’s not.
There are more people than you know, that have gotten close, or even gotten away with it. Danny Ocean ain’t got nothing on these guys.
