Remember the story about the incredible run of 19 red at the Roulette table in Vegas? Never happened, unfortunately. The poker pro who snapped the photo clearly didn’t realize that the table was empty and a diagnostic test was in progress. Once the story went viral, someone finally called the Rio to inquire.
“There was no one playing at that table,” Rio Las Vegas Hotel & Casino spokesman Gary Thompson told The Detroit News on Wednesday. “It was just a diagnostic test being done.”
