Vegas Gunman Gambled $1 Million A Year

    Family member was professional, Vegas, Phoenix based gambler. Some years rolling in cash, new cars, other years nearly begging for sustenance, unable to drive anywhere. Wife wore furs and diamonds some years, then hand me downs, with no jewelry, in others.

    Ups and downs, wins and losses, right up to the last. Seems Paddock beat all odds and was a very unique… perpetual winner?
