I’ve never had this sort of luck in a casino before…
Pedro Grendene Bartelle is a Brazilian businessman and the president of Vulcabras-Azaleia, the third largest Latin-American shoe company. Not only this, but he is also the son of one of the wealthiest magnates in his home county.
The lucky man bet won an enormous $3.5 million in the casino of the Hotel Conrad in Punta del Este, on the Uruguayan coast.
This would be a much better story if the winner was a poor man and his winnings would change his life forever. Not this time, I’m afraid. Bartelle bet $35,000 to begin with, so obviously he isn’t strapped for cash.
Check out the video of him and his friends as they win:
To be perfectly honest, I have no idea what the people in the video are saying, but to me they seem pretty excited… Odd for a guy who is already rolling in the big bucks. But hey, the thrill if winning of suppose!
How would you react if you won that amount of money?
