Snyder snorted. “Don’t worry, Snyder, I’m on a hot streak.” Uh, yeah.
He tugged on Amanda’s arm. “Come on, let’s go to the roulette table.”
Amanda wiped some sweat from her brow. “I’m about to make it back.”
“We’ll make it back playing roulette.”
“Very well!” She picked up her chips and took them to the roulette table. She dutifully put two $50 chips down on evens.
“Twenty-eight black, a winner!” said the dealer.
She placed the next bet on odds.
“Twenty-nine black, a winner!” said the dealer.
Through twenty spins of the wheel, she won fourteen times and lost six, for a grand total of $800.
Snyder looked at his watch. 23:00. At this rate, it would take until the wee hours of the morning to get back the $5000 she’d blown. “Maybe, you could try a bigger bet.”
Amanda smiled “$1,000 on 00.”
Snyder swallowed. She was supposed to keep this at a reasonable level, Odds and Evens. Hitting the 00 was a 35 to 1 odds and it’d raise some questions. Still, he didn’t want to be here all night.
She hit the 00.
Snyder shook his head vigorously. “Let it ride” meant to put the $35,000 on 00 again. If winning the jackpot on the slots and taking $35,000 at the roulette table didn’t capture the attention of management and law enforcement, getting more than a million dollars on a nearly impossible scenario would.
She frowned. “I guess I’ll—” She glared at Snyder. “I’ll cash out.”
Snyder wiped his brow. This is going to be harder than I thought.
