In 2009, Patricia Demauro established a new world record for having achieved the most consecutive winning rolls over the longest period of time. Patricia, a grandmother, managed her amazing feat during what was only her second-ever Craps session. Her run continued unbroken for a grand total of four hours and 18 minutes while playing with a friend at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

The friends walked into the Borgata at approximately 8:30 pm and initially, her friend had a few brief throws at the Craps tables. After that, Patricia palmed the dotted cubes and proceeded to throw 154 consecutive winning rolls of the dice with her run of luck continuing unbroken over the course of the next four hours and 18 minutes.

The secret winning

Patricia, a Denville New Jersey native, never revealed her winning total. What is known is that she bought into the game for $100, and anyone employing even the most moderate betting strategy would at a minimum see a return of 50 times their original stake.

After having lost on the 155th roll of the dice, the casino staff greeted her with a complimentary champagne toast. Borgata officials confirmed Patricia had broken the previous record by one hour and 12 minutes. The previous record of three hours and 6 minutes, set on the 28th of May 1989 by Honolulu resident Stanley Fujitake while playing in Las Vegas, stood unchallenged for nearly 20 years. That was before Patricia’s run of luck demolished it.

She was just a beginner

At the time Patricia admitted to feeling a little overwhelmed since this was only the second game of Craps she had ever played. By the time Patricia managed to tear herself away from the casino, an early evening had turned into a fresh new day. Despite not having much experience, Patricia hung onto the dice and Lady Luck for more than four hours. This is remarkable considering craps is the type of game where Lady Luck often dictates whether you lose a substantial amount of cash or go on a winning streak.

The craps table

Craps is the type of game that none but the highest of the high-rollers can usually sustain play for more than one hour; she did it for 4 hours 18 minutes! Anyone who has, in their lives, never played the magical game of Craps should overcome this huge hole in their current online entertainment experience as soon as possible.

To find the most suitable, trustworthy, Craps casino, players would be wise to simply download the William Hill mobile app for a superlative online casino player experience. It allows the convenience of playing from anywhere, with your gaming sessions transitioning seamlessly from PC to Mac or your favourite mobile device.

In the end, both Patricia and the casino staff preferred to keep her winning amount a secret, and to never reveal her total winnings. She eventually crapped-out rolling a dastardly “7”, she, however, did reveal one of her future plans, and that was to treat herself and her grandkids by splurging out on a trip to Disney World.
