9 crazy casino wins caught on camera

Recklessness and guesswork wins at one form of betting or another happen every day. But rather like lists of wonderful pictures where the photographer caught a particular image at the perfect moment, those wins are so much cooler when they’re caught on camera. Here’s 9 crazy videos for you to enjoy!

1. The crazy boy from Brazil

Now, if you were set on making 3.5 Million Dollars playing roulette, the ‘safest’ approach may be to have a series of big bets on Red/Black, Odd/Even or 1-18/19-37 and slowly get to that figure across multiple spins.

But this loud-shirted, red wine-drinking Brazilian marches to the beat of a different drum. He sticks 100k on one number and hopes for the best. Some people have all the luck…

2. Ash wins the cash

This one’s a YouTube classic. If you’re going to sell everything you own, bunch it up with your life savings and head to a Casino to put 136,000 US Dollars on the spin of one roulette wheel…you might as well make a TV show out of it.

That’s exactly what Englishman Ashley Revell did. His poor wife looks on as he picks red, knowing that one spin can bankrupt them in an instant. I think we’re all pretty glad it came up red.

3. The boys who trumped Trump

At first glance, there’s nothing particularly remarkable about four middle-aged guys driving to Atlantic City, each contributing 2,500 US dollars to a pot and putting it all on red.

A 10,000 dollar win in an Atlantic City Casino is a daily occurrence. But get to 1.44 minutes in the video and you’ll see who the Casino belongs to. Yes, one Donald J. Trump. Purely for the fact they took 10k of Trump’s own money, this clip deserves to be here.

4. Doing the splits at the Blackjack table

In truth this one shouldn’t really be on a list of biggest casino wins. Instead it should be Number 1 for gutsiest/most stupid play ever seen on a Blackjack table, depending on your perspective.

The Blackjack purist would shudder at the site of this hand, pinpointing every low-percentage move this guy makes. But hey, all’s well that ends well.

5. Slots guy loses the plot live on the web

Part of the fun of any type of gambling is that feeling of joy when you know you’re on a good run. And that’s certainly the case when you’ve activated a bonus feature on a slot, everything has fallen into place and the big wins just keep on coming.

For most of us that happens without any sort of crowd present to witness us going a little over-the-top in our celebrations. But if you’re this ‘Scandi’, who plays slots in front of a live web audience following his every spin with baited breath, a hot run on Jack and the Beanstalk free spins is enjoyed as much by his fans as it is by himself. And boy did he enjoy it

6. He came, he sat, he conquered

The usual way of playing Blackjack in a Casino is to sit down, make yourself comfortable, grab a drink, play a small share of your chips on your first hand and see what the mood at the table is. Is the table ‘hot’? Or is the Dealer pulling out all the stops?

Alternatively, you can play your full bank on one hand, win and get the hell out of Dodge. Which is what he did

7. Racing commentator turns excited gambler

In Europe, sports commentators are a somewhat boring lot. They put any bias to the one side and just talk you through the action in a fair and impartial way.

But not in the US.

This particular horseracing commentator was pretty sweet on huge outsider Jacamo in the Kentucky Derby, methodically listing his reasons for liking his chances. There was less method involved as Jacamo romps home and he goes beserk in the studio.

8. US Marine leaves Bellagio casino all at sea

When you fail to impress your friends at something, your actions are normally met with the words ‘don’t give up the day job’.

But giving up his day job may have been precisely what this US Marine was about to do next after winning 2.8 million US Dollars playing the aptly-named slot ‘The Money Vault.’

Good on him and bonus points for his very understated ‘English-style’ celebrations. Which is more than you can say for the foul-mouthed and somewhat annoying pals of his.

9. Blood pressure levels through the roof in Vegas

Talk about opposites attract. Husband goes ballistic at a Jackpot win in a Vegas Casino, punching the air, waving his arms and shouting ‘Go baby, go’ no fewer than 28 times (approximately).

His wife meanwhile remains in her chair, calm, thoughtful and quiet, like she was watching Oprah.

It’s probably a good thing the slot stopped paying out when it did because we’re not sure this guy’s heart could have taken much more.

Summer Balls and Student Prom Night Planning

Planning A Summer Ball or Prom Night

Have you been thrown in at the deep end and need a little help with planning a Summer Ball or Student Prom Night? Our handy 10 point guide takes you through some of the planning processes and hopefully guide will go some way to helping you organise, advertise, fund and run an excellent event.

1. The Team – The most important factor in making your Ball go well and the organisation go smoothly is to choose a team that can work well together. Assign roles and open up an email trail with your selected members, ensure everyone is on board with the different responsibililities and allow people to have confidence to handle big things such as budget and venue choice.

2. The Theme – Want to make your event fun, distinctive and memorable? Aces Fun Casinos hold stock of Las Vegas themed banners which ensure the casino area stands out. We also offer James Bond 007 Casino Royale themed fun casino nights.

3. The Money – Budgeting is never easy, especially when you’ve no idea how much anything costs. Agree on a budget range, with a ceiling level and break it down into sections. Have confidence when asking for prices, ask for added value and have a list of pre prepared questions for the venue, or catering for example.

4. The Venue – Start by figuring out the attendance numbers and Google search for venues with this capacity. Ask about fire regulations and the times the venue will be available on the night/during the day so you can agree timeslots for the entertainment, catering and any electrical equipment that needs to be set up.

5. The Food – Often the venue will offer food as part of the package, other times external catering companies will need to be researched. For outside occasions whereby a marquee is required you can consider a Hog Roast, or even a BBQ setup. For inside events you’ll need to decide whether a hot sit down meal is viable as opposed to a finger buffet.

6. The Entertainment – From live music, to DJ’s to a Fun Casino – there’s so many choice options. Click here to send a message via our contact form or call FREE on 0800 107 7001 to reserve your Summer Ball date with us.

7. The Guests – How are you inviting people and how will you track attendance figures? Google Drive offers online Cloud documents and spreadsheets that can be instantly shared between several people.

8. The Tickets – Are you having tickets printed? Do you have artwork ready or do you need a talented logo designer to do this for you and organise printing all at once? We work with UK Web Promotions in Somerset and are happy to recommend their services.

9. The Night – Well done you made it! Finally the date had arrived. If the event is ticketed you’ll need to organise people to meet and greet on the door and collect tickets and to deter unwanted gatecrashers.

10. The Checklist and Legalities:

  •     The Venue (check security, opening/closing times, food, table decorations and settings, theming)
  •     Additional items for the venue for example if you’re bringing your own wine, table decorations, prizes, music etc. Is there a sound sytem?
  •     The Ticket Check (printing, distributed, not oversold, capacity versus attendance)
  •     Entertainment at the venue (Fun Casino tables, Roulette, Blackjack – the DJ or live music, photographers etc. when all are arriving, leaving, performing, whether you have include them in the buffet or food numbers)
  •     Transport to and from the venue – local taxi companies or minibus hire?
  •     Risk assessments (if required) for fire exits and insurance on the day

Fun Casinos and Job Satisfaction

As told by June Howley, Business Owner of Aces Fun Casinos.

What is it, after twenty years of working in fun casinos – 16 of those with my own business – keeps me enjoying my work?

As a provider of fun casinos I have been asked to attend thousands of different events at venues ranging from castles to chip shops, stately homes to narrow boats. We’ve worked on farms, in festivals, race courses and tv studios, in people’s kitchens, even their bedrooms when space was at a premium.

We’ve driven to the middle of nowhere, carted our gear across fields and gardens, in through French windows, slithered through blizzards and held our breath driving through flash floods. Why?

Speaking as someone who spent many years in the gaming industry, working in a variety of casinos in the UK and abroad I can say in all honesty that, apart from the excitement of travelling to new countries and all that entails, I find the fun casinos that I do are far more enjoyable.

No one stands to lose their income over the turn of a card or the spin of the wheel.

I am able to engage with my players, tell them a yarn perhaps, teach them a little strategy or just have a bit of banter going alongside the game. How very different from the mostly silent and tense games in the gambling halls of the world, where players show no emotion whatsoever or worse, blaming the croupier for their losses.

Fun Casino Event Entertainment Bristol Somerset Swindon Bath Taunton South Wales West

Fun Casinos are a light-hearted form of entertainment and really – not just for the player. Most of the croupiers that work in my fun casinos have had many years experience working in the gaming industry. They leave for a variety of reasons but a part of them still miss the GAMES as did I. So, after years of meeting all sorts of different people, driving to different places, celebrating different occasions– birthdays, anniversaries, fund raisers, corporate entertainment, weddings – helping to make an event the best it can be and seeing the enjoyment on people’s faces – that’s what gives me job satisfaction. That’s what keeps me doing what I do and enjoying it while I’m doing it.

New Year Party Organisers

We have a wide range of entertaining ideas that guarantees to keep your clients, guests and employees entertained throughout the whole evening. Socializing, conversation, music food and beverages combined with our entertainment services seems to be the perfect combination.

Private Party Entertainment or Surprise Business Fun

Our Entertainments team in Bristol recently organised a private party for a business with a small amount of employees and they booked a couple of roulette tables along with a Poker table and croupier. The business owner said they had the best Christmas Party in years. They had been for a meal at a top restaurant in Bristol and then came back to their place of work where Aces Fun entertainment team had set-up the party themed tables, the fun was to follow.

Looking For A Party with Something Different

Our Entertainment is always different, our staff are trained to such high standards and Professional throughout. Your day or night time entertainment is set to your personal requirement, themed or staged to ensure you always get the best value for money. A home Dinner Party with Aces Fun entertainment always goes down as a great surprise for your guests. A Christmas Party Themed night or Dances and Balls always gets a lot of smiles, the staff or guests dressed in fancy dress and the Aces Fun Entertainment staff dressed in themed costumes.

Fundraising Parties

Do you know someone that’s running the London Marathon or taking on a Challenge and they need to fund raise for a charity or Organisation. Our fundraising parties are perfect for these situations.

Casino Fun

Our Casino Fun is extremely popular in Bristol and Cardiff, the locals in these areas certainly know how to enjoy themselves while having some great fun with our cards and roulette fun chips. Poker can be a skill and roulette a mix of luck and mastered artistry…………possibly 😉

Race Nights

This week we arranged 2 race nights in Bristol and one charity race night in Swindon. All 3 were great success and every one that attended left amazing reviews of our entertainment services and were impressed with our Big Screen Races that showed a mixture of horses, greyhounds and our Charity race night had our famous racing battery powered pigs.

Due to our work schedule over the coming weeks we may be limited to blogging so often, therefore we wanted to Wish You All a Wonderful Christmas and a Prosperous New Year for 2014.

The Aces Fun Entertainment Team look forward to seeing you in the new year and entertaining you all in the best entertainment way
