Over the weekend Jake Cody had grinned his way to being named the UKPC Highroller winner, but split the prize pool 4 ways collecting a total of £46,500 for his trouble. However, Cody wasn’t happy with that and decided to gamble it all in one spin of the wheel.
After a win like that most poker players would head straight over to the bar to celebrate with the usual shots and champagne. Not Jake Cody. Cody went straight to the roulette table at Dusk Till Dawn casino and put 100% of his winning on black.
Cody asked Dusk Till Dawn casino owner, Rob Yong to spin the wheel himself. Yong agreed and helped Cody walk away with over £90,000 after it came up black. The crowd gathered went mad, and I assume the celebrations went straight to the bar for the delayed shots and champagne.
