Become a millionaire in one fell swoop by winning the lottery or casino, who doesn't dream of that? Although the chances are not too high, a big coup is still possible. There are numerous examples of people making millions from gambling. Online casinos in particular allow maximum winnings thanks to slots with a progressive jackpot. For a good start, the casinos offer attractive bonuses such as a Book of Dead free credit. Below we introduce you to seven gamblers who actually got rich through casinos and gambling.

Christian Kaisan - The boiler looker

Before Christian Kaisan invested his first euro, he observed the different roulette wheels in the casinos for three years. After a comprehensive analysis, he began to implement his findings at the roulette table in 1984, and with success.

Within the first six weeks, he won the equivalent of around 35,000 euros. But that was just the beginning. Kaisan travels around the world and visits well-known casinos. In Australia, he won almost 250,000 euros in just three days. Only a short time later, in Copenhagen, he achieved his highest daily win to date: 126,000 euros. According to his own statements, he has won more than 4 million euros within five years.

Kaisan is a so-called boiler watcher. After throwing the ball, he is able to determine a sector with 9 numbers in which it will most likely land. This technique resulted in Kaisan being banned from many casinos. With such a win, you can certainly get over it.

Blackjack pro-Ian Speakman

Who does not know the film Rain Man, in which Dustin Hoffman counted the cards at blackjack as an autistic person? British professional gambler Ian Speakman may not be autistic, but he has mastered the art of card counting. This gives him a mathematical advantage over the bank. After the introduction of the first shuffling machines, he analyzed them carefully, which again brought him profits at the blackjack tables. He earned more than a million US dollars a year.

Speakman mainly played in Germany, Austria, and Holland. From 1983 he was denied entry to most casinos in these countries. After several lawsuits, the ban has since been found unlawful.

Dan Bilzerian - The poker pro

American Dan Bilzerian is one of the most well-known poker players and social media influencers. The poker pro with Armenian roots has more than 32 million followers on Instagram alone. He got into poker through his brother Adam. However, the beginning was difficult. In the first year, he gambled away his money completely. He then managed to turn $750 into $10,000. According to his own statements, he increased this to $187,000 in Las Vegas.

Bilzerian was particularly successful in 2013 when he reportedly made over $10 million playing poker. These amounts cannot be checked because he mostly plays privately. Dan Bilzerian's notoriety is primarily based on his social media activities. Here he likes to show himself with celebrities, models, and Playmates. His closest friends include Mel Gibson and Steve Aoki.

Sam Farha - passionate poker player

Ihsan "Sam" Farha was born in Lebanon and discovered his passion for the game at an early age. As a kid, he won $5,000 playing Pac-Man. He moved to the United States in 1970 and graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in business administration. In 1990 he started playing poker professionally. Just 6 years later he became world champion in Omaha Hold'em at the World Series of Poker. For this, he received prize money of 145,000 US dollars.

Farha made his biggest win to date in 2003. Although he lost in the Main Event heads-up to a previously unknown player, around $1.3 million was a pleasant consolation prize. In the poker scene, Farha is considered an unpredictable and aggressive player. He always succeeds in intimidating his opponents. He has over $3 million in live tournament earnings during his career. One of Farha's trademarks is the cigarette hanging in the corner of his mouth, which he never smokes.

Casino lucky guy Archie Karas

Greek-born Archie Karas made casino history in the 1990s. With $50 in seed capital, he made his way from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. There he borrowed another $10,000 from an acquaintance. In just three hours he had tripled the amount and was able to repay the loan with interest. Over the next three years, his gambling fortune increased to a whopping $40 million. He mainly made his winnings with poker and craps.

Unfortunately, the story doesn't have a happy ending. In 1995, Karas gambled away all of his winnings. He challenged all of Las Vegas' poker elite to play him heads-up, at a limit often as low as $10,000 to $20,000.

Elmer Sherwin - Winning millions with jackpots

WWII veteran Elmer Sherwin won a $4.6 million jackpot in 1989 at the Mirage Casino in Las Vegas. He was playing the Megabucks slot which was being launched at Mirage Casino at the time. Achieving such a profit once in a lifetime is a dream for most. However, Elmer Sherwin managed to do the near-impossible. In 2005 he scooped the Megabucks jackpot again at Cannery Casino & Hotel. His winnings this time: an incredible $21,147,947.

With that, Shervin has won around $26 million from his visits to Las Vegas. He donated a large portion of his winnings to charity before passing away in March 2007.

Jon Heywood – Millionaire in the online casino

26-year-old soldier Jon Heywood from Cheshire, UK, became a multi-millionaire overnight. He had deposited £30 at an online casino and was playing the Microgaming Mega Moolah slot at 25p per spin.

After about 7 minutes the big win came. With one spin he cleared the amount of 17,879,645.12 euros. This meant a new world record for jackpot winnings in an online casino. The previous high for a Finnish player from 2013 was exceeded by around 18,000 euros. At the same time, there was an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records for Jon Heywood. The example shows that winnings in the millions are actually possible in online casinos.
