What is the definition of luck?
Luck is the phenomenon and belief that defines the experience of notably positive, negative, or improbable events. Improbable events in gambling are what we will discuss today. The top 10 gambling winners that beat the odds in an almost unbelievable way.
Number 10: One in a Trillion with Patricia Damorro
This particular lucky winner stood at the craps table and rolled the dice 154 times without getting a single 7. The stats on getting a 7 is usually 1 in 8 dice rolls. Therefore, the likelihood of this happening is closer to winning the lottery 1 million times. If that isn’t an improbable event, I’m not sure what is.
Number 9: Arabian nights on Autoplay with Peter Hollan
Imagine playing online and walking away from your slot game only to come back and find that you won the equivalent of $15 million? Well, ask Peter! It happened to him.

Number 6: How to be a winner with Don Johnson
He was infamous for figuring out the mathematical odds in Blackjack and played the money system to rake in as much as he could as soon as possible. $15 million in just 6 months, to be exact. Since then, Don has had no choice but to resign from all Blackjack activities indefinitely.
Number 5: Playing the Palace with Anonymous

Number 3: Mega 30 with Cynthia Jay Brennan
Cynthia Jay Brennan, a cocktail waitress, hit the big time when she won the jackpot of $34,959,458.56 on a MegaBucks slot machine in Las Vegas. Sadly, 9 weeks later, driving her new Camaro with her sister, she was hit by a drunk driver. Her sister was killed, and Cynthia was left paralyzed from the waist down. The last comment from her was that she’d give the cashback to have the use of her lower extremities again. But, unfortunately, not all Luck is Good.
