|ARCHIE "The Greek" KARAS
The 10 Part Chronicles
I was fortunate to be able to write the amazing story on Archie "The Greek"
Karas in my column, Sexton's Corner.
After interviewing him for over 60 hours, I began to realize just how unique and
big his story really was, as Archie revealed details of his epic gambling story,
that have never been written about. As a result,
I decided to write his chronicles in a riveting 10-Part story, from the
time he ran away from home at 15, to become the biggest gambler in the world!
Fasten your seatbelts and get ready to read about the most colorful true
gambling story that ever happened in Las Vegas! Archie came to Las Vegas
once with $50 in his pocket in December of 1992, and parlayed it into a
fortune that exceeded $40,000,000 in 2 1/2 years,
by shooting pool, shooting dice, and playing high stakes poker with the
greatest poker players in the world. After winning enough to fill up Fort Knox,
find out all the true details that happened to him in losing it all back.
There are several mini-streaks where Archie won millions more, that the
general public has never heard about. Come along on this magic ride with
Archie Karas, that will make you feel like you are right there, experiencing the
biggest wins and biggest loss in Las Vegas
History! Imagine having to go to work to shoot dice, and having to transport
$3,000,000 to $5,000,000 from your bank to the cage at Binion's Horseshoe
almost every day, while avoiding the hustlers and heistmen along the way!
The Archie Karas story is unlike any
gambling story you have ever read!
