    I'm interested to know how one person won $5.8 million and the story doesn't say. It's not as though someone walks up to the table out of the blue and decides to play for $25,000 a hand.

    With news like this I wonder how many people they will draw in now.

    high roller on a big-stakes table didn't get cut off soon enough. probably playing 50k or 100k a hand and they probably increased his limit once he went on a good run, thinking his luck would turn.

    People definitely do walk up to the table and just bet $25,000 a hand. It happens all the time....

    They just usually end up losing.

    Guy had to be betting 100 grand plus, it is really tough to go on a +50 hands sitting.

    Would be very interested in seeing the player's rating on computer. That is a lot of money for a casino to lose in 21. Curious if it was done over a long trip or quick shot. Leaning toward a long trip as most casinos max out their high end credit players at 100 k a hand unless an exception is granted by multiple execs.

    Trop is a piece of shit. They got bed bugs.

    Good for him. I would imagine that he will be welcomed back with open arms. Hope he has some discipline, but the odds are he will not be satisfied with his score.

    I last visited The Tropicana in January and saw plenty of advertising for High Limit Blackjack & Craps, and "The Home For The Serious Player" I just laughed, as their High Limit area was pretty dead, aside from the Asian's playing Baccarat.

    I love The Trop, but the place is a dump. Who would seriously bring all that bank to their BJ tables, especially when Caesars and Bogata are minutes away.

    Barring him being a card counter, the casino will fly this guy back in from anywhere to try and get some back.

    Hopefully, Casino Player magazine or some other gambling website will cover this in more detail. Not necessarily the guy's name but just how it came about.

    That is unbelievable. I feel pretty good winning 500 on the tables.

    Many moons ago, my cousin was a dealer at Merv Griffins Casino in Paradise Island in the Bahamas. A Saudi prince bet $2million one hand... lost it, bet another $2million, lost that. Bet $5 million, doubled down and won. Stopped playing and the casino cut him a check for $6 million. My cousin told me that the guy never cashed the check...

    I can't remember the exact number but that prince was making like a million dollars an hour on oil wells. It was a sick number...

    That's a great story... an unbelievable amount of luck. The BJ Gods were definitely smiling down on him.
