Question:
Las Vegas has always been connected to fabulous stories of gamblers striking it rich and some of the unfortunate going broke. This week’s Reader Poll asks the question . . . What is the wildest gambling story you have ever heard?  What is your opinion? Why or Why Not? 
 
Reader Poll Replies:

I once gave my wife $50 and one day later she turned it into $1500.  And BTW, she never returned my $50 either.  Ken S. 

The wildest story I have heard was the homeless person that that found a quarter and played the big jackpot and hit for millions. I think that it's great if it's true.  Paul Tessier

*  I guess mine will have to be the story I just read in your newsletter about the guy who just turned 21 and won not (1) but (2) poker tourn. for almost a million bucks!  Now that is one lucky guy!  Good for him!   Tesa Vassar  Loveland, Colorado

The Binion murder story. I live out of state and found the story of sex, drugs, and burried money fascinating.  Mark Sharp  Maysville OK

In 1970 I was working in a casino in lake Tahoe nv. a place called kings castle. I worked the midnight shift. well playing in the lounge was the great BB KING. his show got over around 2am and he always hit the floor for a little bit of slot play. this one night he walked by me as I was cleaning a bed of slots and I remember like it was yesterday him saying to no one in particular "lookie here" he bent down and found a 50 cent piece. since it was in the area of 50c machines he put it in one and won $500 dollars. he was a happy as a clam. slapped me five and was smiling ear to ear. he had his famous Lucille with him and asked me to hold her while he collected his winnings. I was so afraid I was going to break her or drop her I just stood there like a dummy. by the was he was and still is a terrific guy. always smiling. Ralph
