48-hour lunging, bathroom living, and fearful bungee jumps all make our list of the strangest casino-themed prop bets and challenges.
Prop bets and games have gone hand in hand for decades.
However, while poker and sports betting have had their fair share of mad money problems, there haven’t been quite as many based on the 바카라사이트.
Let’s take a closer look at those instances where a real-money challenge has become the 바카라사이트’s atmosphere.
5. Amarillo Slim’s adventurous horseback ride
Slim Preston, also known as ‘Amarillo,’ was a legendary gambler and poker player from Las Vegas. If there was something to bet on, Amarillo Slim is likely to bet on it.
Slim’s calling card has always been outrageous prop bets.
Evel Knievel’s daredevil stunt biker was once challenged to a game of golf by him. Although that seemed reasonable enough, the catch was that both players had to use hammers as golf clubs.
Slim was the winner of the wager.
Seabiscuit, the racehorse champion, was the subject of his craziest wager. As a keen horse, he believed he could outsprint the thoroughbred for over 100 yards.
Slim, like all successful prop bettors, had selected a 50-yard racetrack outside a casino(카지노) in 바카라사이트 as his bet.
Due to the track’s length, Seabiscuit and Jockey had to hit the end and turn around in order to complete the final 50 yards.
During the time it took the jockey to turn around, Slim was well on his way to winning the race.
4. A bet on Skylab’s satellite fails.
The El Cortez hotel and casino in 바카라사이트 is one of the more quaint Downtown establishments, but long-time owner Jackie Gaughan has added a lot of color over the years.
Gaughan took bets on where the United States space station, Skylab, would crash back to Earth in 1979, as it was scheduled for re-entry that year.
He also staked $10,000 on the remains of Skylab landing in his casino.
Gamblers – and Gaughan himself – were way off the mark when the space station disintegrated and landed somewhere in Australia.
3. For Jay Kwik, living in the bathroom pays off.
Las Vegas is known for having some of the most luxurious hotel rooms and facilities in the country. But, if you were to win a bet, would you be willing to spend a month in a Vegas bathroom?
This is what Jay Kwik did when he accepted a bet to live in a Bellagio casino bathroom for 30 days.
Andrew Robl, a friend, put up the money, but Robl paid $40,000 to get out of the $250k bet several days early, just as it seemed that Kwik would pull it off.
2. Jeff Gross visits the Stratosphere for a terrifying prop.
Another poker player has put a wager, this time using one of Las Vegas’ legendary casinos as a starting point.
Jeff Gross, an American pro known for his vertigo, took a bet in 2013 that he would not bungee jump from the top of the 1.149-foot Stratosphere Tower.
Gross was able to keep his cool and win his wager.
1. Antonio Esfandiari tries to disqualify himself with a lunge.
Antonio Esfandiari is regarded as one of America’s greatest poker players, but he also loves a wild prop bet now and then.
In 2016, Esfandiari accepted a prop bet from infamous gambler and hedge fund manager Bill Perkins that required him to do lunges for 48 hours straight everywhere he went.
After lunging his way around a Caribbean casino, Esfandiari was in dire need of a bathroom.
‘The Magician’ had to relieve himself while playing poker because he was in too much pain to move, and he was immediately disqualified from the tournament.
Despite being out of the game, Esfandiari won the bet and donated his $50,000 winnings to charity.
“There’s a limit to how far you can go, and I failed in this situation,” he said shortly afterward.
