BlackJack Player's $15 Million Lucky Streak

A story was reported recently that a mystery blackjack player was single-handedly responsible for a 20% fall in the Tropicana Casino’s April revenue figures, after winning a staggering $5.8 million at their blackjack tables.
In addition, it was reported that the man also had won huge amounts at the Borgata and at Caesars to further compound the woes of Atlantic City’s beleaguered casino industry.
Now the mystery blackjack winner has stepped forward to reveal himself as Don Johnson, 49, of Bensalem, Pennsylvania, the CEO of Heritage Development LLC,which specialises in utilising computer-assisted betting software for horse-racing.
Furthermore, Johnson has shed light on the true extent of his recent win after revealing he not only took the Tropicana for $5.8 million, but also the Borgata for $5 million and Caesars for over $4 million.
Accounting for his $15.1 million blackjack tear over a six month period in Atlantic City, Johnson explained it all away as a dramatic run of good fortune, and commented:
“I’ll take luck over any other skill. There’s no magic to this. Eventually, someone would whack them. I’m just glad it was me.”
Despite Johnson’s modest explanation, he  evidently also possesses a deep understanding of the game of blackjack, highlighted by the fact he refused to divulge his betting strategy. Instead, Johnson simply stated:
“They [casinos] beat most people in the long run because the average person won’t have the bankroll. But I have my own bankroll. If you can take the swings, you’re going to win. You also have to understand the math.”
He also dismissed suggestions of card-counting and said he managed to beat the casinos using his own skills.
When Don Johnson first started playing blackjack 15 years ago he would place $25 bets but as his proficiency grew over the years so did his bets and last month at the Tropicana, he was wagering up to $100,000 per hand.
However, after his winning ways Johnson may find it a lot harder now getting the high-roller action he has enjoyed in the past. He has already been banned at Harrah’s casinos and Caesars in Nevada, as well as also being refused at Resorts and Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City.
