Jubilant Gambler Throws $30,000 Prize Money Off Casino Roof
After winning $30,000 at a casino in Uruguay, a jubilant French gambler celebrated by throwing the money off the casino balcony down to the people below.The man was staying at the exclusive Punta del Este resort celebrating his birthday when the incident took place. He began the night by heading out drinking at the Moby Dick pub before heading to the casino where he won the money. In his inebriated state, at about 6:30am, he decided to climb to the pub’s roof and began to throw the money down to the crowd that had gathered. He continued to shower the ground with money for a full hour.
A lucky local dishwasher is thought to have collected about $3,000 while several other customers and employees picked up between $100 and $500 each. It has also been reported that the Frenchman used several hundred dollar bills to light a cigar.
Hilariously, after he had finished celebrating the man realized that he had given all his money away and needed to borrow some in order to take a taxi back to his hotel.
