TURNING THE TABLE ($90,000 – $120,000+)

Joseph Jagger was born in Yorkshire, England in 1830 and worked as an engineer in a cotton factory. With his mechanical expertise and a passion for roulette, Jagger believed that imperfections in roulette wheels made some numbers more likely to appear than others.

In 1880, Jagger went to Monte Carlo with six helpers to observe the six roulette wheels at the Beaux-Arts casino. Each person monitored one wheel, noting the results. Jagger discovered that a particular wheel favoured nine specific numbers – 7, 8, 9, 17, 18, 19, 22, 28 and 29.

Armed with this insight, Jagger returned to the casino with a plan to capitalize on its tendencies. As expected, the favoured numbers continued to surface, allowing him to amass over £60,000 in winnings over three days – a staggering sum equivalent to nearly $4,000,000.00 (USD) today!

The next day, having grown suspicious of its mounting losses, the casino shuffled the wheel positions. Unaware of the change, Jagger initially faced losses. However, his sharp eye caught a discrepancy – a missing scratch absent on the biased wheel. He tracked down the correct wheel and resumed his streak for another two days.

The casino, determined to halt Jagger's winning streak, implemented a new tactic – they rotated the metal dividers between numbers nightly to change the wheel’s bias. Despite his best efforts, Jagger couldn't adapt to the shifting odds and suffered losses over two days.

Realizing it was time to bow out, he left Monte Carlo and returned home with his winnings. He retired from the mill, invested in property and passed away in 1892, leaving behind a legacy of cunning and fortune.
