Some people are born gamblers while others don't want to risk a penny of their hard-earned cash. It's pretty clear which category Brazilian businessman Pedro Grendene Bartelle falls into - he bet $100,000 on one spin of roulette. Bartelle, who is the president of a shoe company and whose uncle is a billionaire thanks to a successful sandal manufacturing company, placed a huge stack of chips on the number 32 at Uruguay's Hotel Conrad, and then 32 hit, winning him $3.5 million. The exciting moment was all caught on a somewhat poorly-shot video.
Not surprisingly, Twitter has some amazing reactions to the remarkable win.
If he can afford to lose $100k at what 35-1 odds then winning $3.5 mill probably isn’t a big deal for him.— Smerjipoo (@smerjipoo) August 16, 2019
