The Amazing Moment A Brazilian Businessman Won £3.5 Million From One Roulette Spin
| Last updated
A Brazilian man once turned a £35,000 bet on a roulette wheel into £3.5 million and his celebrations were caught on video.
Back in 2017, Pedro Grendene Bartelle was at the Hotel Conrad in Punta del Este in Uruguay when he took a huge gamble of going all in on 32.
A large amount of people surround Pedro as he places the bet and what follows is a huge celebration from all involved.
Check out the footage below.
Pedro, who is the nephew of famous billionaire Alexandre Grendene Bartelle, is then swamped by a barrage of people who want to congratulate him.
Bartelle is currently worth $1.8 billion according to Forbes and he co-founded Grendene, one of the world's largest sandal manufacturers.
The 70-year-old also has investments in a variety of other industries such as steel.
Earlier this year also saw another Brazilian's life change after pulling of an insane gamble.
Poker player 'AAAArthur' won an incredible $1.1 million last month after a four-way deal during the PokerStars Sunday Million tournament.

Having satellited into the event for just $11, the Brazilian, whose real name is Alex Brito, eventually came into the final table of nine with the shortest stack after a record-breaking field of 93,016 players.
But after three days of play, 'AAAArthur' eventually scooped the victory in an incredible finale.
The PokerStars tournament, which commemorated the 14th anniversary of the Sunday Million, had a total prize pool of $18,603,200.
And after the table struck an ICM deal, four players picked up over half a million each.
In an interview with PokerStars after his famous win, Brito opened up about his win.

"Every year, I read about the Sunday Million Anniversary but didn't try to play it. This year was different. I don't know why, but I wanted to play it so much." he said.
The Brazillian player originally started with a $0.25 Spin & Go, which he won before his winnings to enter a $4 satellite
From there, he gained entry into an $11 satellite with 100 seats guaranteed. He won one of those too.
