Niko Tosa and his companions played roulette in a synchronized and strange way, baffling the Ritz Club casino staff with their ability to win without any apparent tampering with the wheel.
In 2004, a Croatian man named Niko Tosa entered the Ritz Club casino in London with two companions. Tosa had visited the casino several times over the previous two weeks and had amazed the staff with his ability to win at roulette. On this night, Tosa and his companions played roulette in a strange and synchronized way, waiting until the ball had been spinning for several seconds before placing their bets. They covered up to 15 numbers at once and favored “neighbors” bets, consisting of one number and the two on each side. The casino staff could not figure out how Tosa was winning, and even examined the wheel he played on for signs of tampering but found none.
