Brilliant casino game from Jagger

In our previous article, we began to look at the story of Joseph Jagger, who became a legend in casino games. In this article we will continue our story and describe how he managed to subdue the game in the casino.

Having collected some money and armed with the knowledge gained, Joseph Jagger crossed the threshold of the Beaux-Arts casino on July 7, 1875. The game at the casino went according to plan, all the bets he did on the lucky nine digits, and at the end of the evening had a sum of 14,000 pounds sterling, which is equivalent to 700,000 pounds in our time. Over the next three days, he won another 60,000 pounds.

After that, the casino guessed that there was no smell of good luck, and they began to rearrange the wheels in a different order in the game room. However, Joseph was able to find, on the scratch on the body, the desired wheel and continued to win. Over the next two days, the casino administration continually changed tables and wheels, and as a result, Jagger began to lose. We must pay tribute to him, he stopped playing and left the casino so that he would never return to it again. In total, during the time spent at Beaux-Arts, Joseph won £ 3,250,000 in terms of modern money. He resigned from the factory, invested the funds in real estate and lived comfortably until his death in 1892.

His actions caused a lot of damage to the casino, as many players, noticing that Jagger constantly wins, began to bet on the same numbers as he. In the future, in all the Monte Carlo casinos, people began to be very attentive to the serviceability of the equipment used and similar incidents, at least on this scale, have not been repeated.
