The Grandma who beat the odds

Patricia Demauro

New Jersey native and grandmother, Patricia Demauro made gambling headlines when she beat the odds at the craps tables at Atlantic City's Hotel, Casino and spa when she rolled the dice a massive 154 times without rolling a 7 in a lucky streak that has gone down in not only craps and casino history but has also broken world records for the longest craps roll (she played for a total of 4 hours and 18 minutes) and the most successive dice rolls in the game of craps without "Sevening out".

The odds of accomplishing this amazing feat are approximately 1 in 1.56 trillion.
