The British Sky-One broadcaster live from the casino in Las Vegas - when Revell placed his $135.300 bet on Red. His mom and dad and some friends were there to support him - even though his parents did not approve of the idea they were there to support him.

The wheel was spun and seconds later the ball came to a rest on Red 7 - and Revell could walk away a winner with $270.600 in his pocket. He gave a $600 tip to the croupier before he left the casino.
