A lucky Brazilian roulette player was vacationing in Uruguay when he decided to visit the Conrad Casino.

Sensational stories are not unheard of in the gambling world. Last year we heard about Jake Cody who, after winning €42,000 playing poker, decided to bet it all – and won! Today, we're here to tell you about a tourist from Brazil who found himself $100,000 richer playing roulette at a casino in Uruguay. The surprise result was a $3.5 million win!

The lucky winner of the $3.5 million was Pedro Grendene Bartelle, the son of a Brazilian billionaire who manufactures sandals. This already very lucky player was vacationing in Punta del Este with a few friends when they decided to hit the local casino called the Conrad Casino.

Feeling particularly lucky, he decided to bet $100,000 on a roulette table which resulted in a $3.5 million win.

Lucky number 32

This player must have been feeling really lucky as he decided to put $100,000 down on number 32 of the roulette table which, incidentally, was his lucky number. Whether it was divine intervention or he was super lucky, we will never know but in the next moment he would win $3.5 million.

If roulette games are what you're after, then you can find a variety of them at SlotsMillion, Dunder Casino or PlayFrank.
