Gambler gambles his life's worth and wins

A man who sold everything he owned to risk it all on a single spin of the roulette wheel in the Plaza Hotel and Casino has left Las Vegas twice as rich.

Ashley Revell wins $135,000

32-year-old Ashley Revell, from Kent, England, sold all of his possessions to raise cash and risk it all in a one-off bet in Vegas.

Revell raised about $135,300 from selling all his stuff in auctions and car boot sales. He took the money to vegas and put it all on red.

Revell's winning
The ball landed on red 7 winning Ashley around $135,000. He punched the air with delight. If the ball had landed on black, Revell would have left Vegas empty-handed.

"That was just the most amazing experience I have ever had in my life. The first thing I am going to do is buy some new clothes, some sunglasses, obviously," he said.

"It was just wicked, I mean it was just... I can't describe my feelings going through that. It has just been a complete sort of rollercoaster ride. First it's on, then it's off."

"I just wanted to get the bet over with, and know either way. Obviously, I was feeling lucky, but I just didn't know."

"Really all I am going to do now is chill out, my family are here, my friends are here, so just spend some time with them."
