ABOUT ST. PATRICK’S DAY

Historically, the holiday was created in the early 17th century to celebrate the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. It is celebrated yearly on March 17th, the day that Saint Patrick died. St. Patrick’s Day celebrates the culture and heritage of the Irish and celebrations usually include parades, festivals, wearing green, and shamrocks. Traditionally, the restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol were lifted on St. Patrick’s Day, which has encouraged the tradition of consuming a lot of alcohol on the holiday.

Although St. Patrick’s Day isn’t directly an American holiday, we Americans just like the Irish, love any excuse to throw a parade and drink a lot of beer, so we obviously adopted the tradition. If you’re looking for more activities to celebrate the holiday in downtown Vegas, you can see if you have luck of the Irish and try your hand in the casino. This year, St. Patrick’s Day is on a Sunday which makes it the perfect day to drink a lot, party downtown, and have a spectacular Sunday Funday. The holiday is widely celebrated in Las Vegas so be sure to book a room in advance to ensure that you can party on all night long. We’ll see you there in your best green outfit!

Man Wins $270K at The Plaza After Betting His Life Savings

Ashley Revell: ‘That spin was the most amazing moment of my life. It is a cliché but time did stand still. It was just complete calm.’

Ashley Revell

For Ashley Revell, a 32-year-old man from London, gambling his life savings in Las Vegas actually paid off. In possibly the most famous bet of recent years, a 32-year-old Ashley Revell from Kent sold all of his worldly possessions to bet everything he owned on the roulette table in Vegas.

Back in 2004, he won $270,600 at the Plaza Hotel & Casino in a double-or-nothing bet at the roulette wheel. Revell chose to bet on red with a less than a 50/50 chance of doubling his life savings of $135,300.

There was a whole film crew there to film his wager. At first, the bet was supposed to take place at the Hard Rock Hotel, but they wouldn’t accept the wager.

The Plaza was up for the fun though! As the roulette wheel spun the anticipation grew before finally landing on Red 7.

Ashley Revell sold all of his possessions in order to make up the $135,300 he bet at The Plaza. After winning the $270,600, Revell decided to start a poker website, Poker UTD, and he also entered the online gambling market with an iGaming recruitment website. Revell decided to take a trip to Holland shortly after the bet in Las Vegas where he met his wife. They now have two kids.

There hasn’t been a bet quite as unique as Revell’s since then. It even spawned a reality television show called hosted by Simon Cowell.

If you’re wanting to test your luck like Revell did, you can come down to the Plaza Hotel & Casino and play one of the many tables or slots with the hopes of winning big.

The Plaza has daily casino promotions like the Daily Spin 2 Win where players earn one entry for every 100 points they earn while playing their favorite slot games. Five winners will be chosen every night at 8:15PM for a chance to win up to $1,000. Every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, the 777 Slot Tournament takes place at The Plaza where players can enter at different session times for a chance to win. Will you be the next person to win big at The Plaza?
