Ashley Revell is a professional British gambler made famous due to his participation in the reality series “Double or nothing” in 2004. Ashley sold all his belongings, all the way up to his very clothes, and staked $135,300 on a SINGLE Roulette spin in the Plaza Hotel & Casino in Vegas.
The bet was placed on red and the ball landed on 7 RED which doubled Revell’s stake to $270,600. Everyone expected that he would continue the game, but he left a $600 tip to the dealer, thanked the ones at the table and left the hall.
Revell used his profit wisely and stared his own online poker brand called Poker UTD. Popular TV producer Simon Cowell claims that Revell is the figure which inspired his show called “Red or Black?”
