One Gambler’s BlackJack Streak Destroys Atlantic City’s Tropicana

May 15, 2011 6:04 am

Well, this is like a repeat of “Bringing Down The House” – we spotted this today:

“The Tropicana lost more than $1.86 million at its blackjack tables in April thanks mostly to a single patron who won $5.8 million at the casino’s high-stakes tables.

A spokesman for New Jersey’s Casino Control Commission told The Star Ledger that the proportion of the Tropicana’s loss was unprecedented in the state since the inception of casino gambling in 1978. “It’s extraordinarily unusual for a casino to lose money at the game of blackjack in a particular month,” he told the paper.”

Mind-blowing statistic, this one.
