Can You Make Gambling Pay?

Can You Make Gambling PayUsually, when gambling is mentioned, a number of thoughts come to mind: there’s the notion of simply having fun without any real gains; that it’s addictive and a time waster; that it’s all about spending large sums of money. Whilst all of the above may be somewhat true, there’s another side of gambling that’s rarely talked about. Amongst gamblers, whether those placing bets online or in a physical casino, some have actually made it a full time profession. Notable big winners that have recently made headlines include the following:

1. Zeljko Ranogajec – Net Worth $1 Billion Plus

Zeljko Ranogajec is without doubt one of Australia’s, if not the world’s, greatest punters. According to reports, the Australian-born Croat is worth more than $1 billion. His journey to gambling success started with only a couple of hundred dollars. However, this quickly multiplied to millions in no time. He’s considered to be one of the most innovative and prolific advantage gamblers of all time. Zeljko Ranogajec participates in games such as blackjack, horse racing, sports betting and more. In 2011, he was even inducted into the ‘Blackjack Hall of Fame’.

2. Alain M – €1,812,934 (AUD 2,663,937) 

Just recently, Alain M saw his winnings shoot up to a whopping €1,812,934 after playing the Beach Life progressive slot machine online. During an interview, he admitted he’d only been playing for less than twenty minutes. He confessed to loving online gambling since there is no time restriction, which allows him to play anywhere and at anytime. In his parting shot, he encouraged other players to try their luck since they may be the next winners.

3. Scott Taylor – CAD 155,345 (AUD 152,269)

Scott Taylor managed to win the colossal sum of 155,345 Canadian dollars while playing other top-rated players online. Despite having participated in many online games, he never imagined in his wildest dreams that he would win this much money. While playing a game of progressive blackjack, he acquired four aces consecutively: this helped him hit the high score.

4. Aussie Wins AUD 114,825

According to reports, an Aussie managed to win approximately AUD 114,825. He accomplished this while playing the popular Tomb Raider game. The player, who frequents Euro Palace, said that he has been an avid online gambler for quite a while, however this win was his biggest yet.

If the above scenarios are anything to go by, we can clearly come to the conclusion that gambling does pay sometimes. These people are living proof that gambling is not only about spending money, but can also be a revenue generator. However, just like any other profession, there’s always a learning curve as it takes time to become proficient. In addition, it also requires patience and persistence and let’s not forget that a bit of luck isinvolved too. Therefore, if you feel that you’re good at it or have a soft spot for gambling, why not try making serious money out of it? You never know.
