While regular mortals either play free online blackjack or low limits at various online casinos, some play for millions.
Tropicana Casino, which prides itself on taming high rollers, and making them crawl home defeated and demoralized, took a drubbing at the hands of the blackjack master.
In April of this year Don Johnson, a famous blackjack high roller, beat various Atlantic City casinos for more than $15 million playing ultra-high limit blackjack card games. He return again in October for a second helping, deciding to visit Tropicana Casino, which fell victim to his elite black jack mastery of the card table in April to a tune of $5.5 million.
Tropicana Casino, which was hemorrhaging from the blackjack high roller’s advanced card counting prowess, had recovered a bit and its owner even sent out a challenge for Johnson to return.
‘The Beast of Blackjack’ or ‘The Atlantic City Assassin’, the nicknames that the world press has christened Don Johnson with, speak volumes of the pure fear that every casino pit boss feels in the pit of their stomach when the mighty blackjack master walks onto the casino floor.
The $5.5 million dollars that Johnson won at the Tropicana in a single day exploded his face and name on television and newspapers throughout the world. In essence making him as much of a star as his namesake, Don Johnson, the actor from Miami Vice episodes of the 1980s.
In October, Johnson the blackjack high roller was back for more and nothing was going to hold him back from unleashing the power of the ancient gods of blackjack upon Tropicana.
He paid a visit yet again to the Tropicana Casino, located in New Jersey, and took $2 million in a death defying two day gambling spree at the blackjack tables. The blackjack high roller’s win was confirmed when Tropicana CEO, Mr. Tony Rodio, admitted that the casino was the victim of the Atlantic City assassin’s fury.
“I went back in and did very well,” the normally press shy Don Johnson stated to reporters. Not bad for two days work.
