Pedro Grendene Bartelle could be the luckiest person in 2017; the Brazilian businessman bet almost $35,000 on a live roulette spin at Hotel Conrad in Punta del Este, Uruguay.
It seems the rich get richer. The billionaire businessman netted over $1.2 million with the single bet winning $3.5 million. As he sipped his wine, Bartelle reassured bystanders on his decision before the spin. When the ball landed on number 32, the casino roared with applause while Bartelle celebrated with his friends and onlookers.
