Longest craps roll

Craps is a game played with two dice. There are many variants, but broadly speaking a player rolls the dice once to give a “point number”, which in order to win they must then roll again before they get a 7. On 23 May 2009 Patricia Demauro of New Jersey, USA, was playing craps at the Borgata Hotel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA, and threw the dice a record 154 times before a 7 finally terminated her lucky streak – a craps roll lasting a total 4 hours 18 minutes. The odds of this happening are 1,560,000,000,000 to 1 – less likely than being struck by lightning. Neither she nor the casino divulged how much she won.
