Bill Benter, is a reserved unassuming and media-shy Pittsburg resident who made almost 1 billion dollars by gambling on horse races.

The man was a mathematical genius who was on the cutting edge of both computer science and statistical modeling so it is widely assumed with his business knowledge that he could have made money just about anywhere, in a rare interview when asked about his success in horse racing he said: “I was driven only partly by money, I believe I probably could have made more money in finance, but that didn’t interest me, I didn’t get into professional horse racing because it was hard, but because it was said to be impossible”

  13. Edward Mauer says

    Overcoming a 17% rake is insane. Idk why someone of his talents chose to go down this route. If he's good enough to overcome a 17% disadvantage then he's defintiely right when he says he could've made more money in the finance industry. A lot more probably.

  14. Anthony Wan says

    I didn't quite get the end. So did Benter even cash in any of the tickets or did he just left the top prize alone? Or did he sink all his initial costs for the ticket purchase for this final act of Robinhood?

    The fact that law enforcement get involved with casinos to tell them who is gaming the system just shows how corrupt our system is.
    The casinos game people every day out of their life savings and nobody cares, but when someone games the casino, the police get involved. Gtfo

  21. DrDre says

    Big data works for online casinos as well. Check playsmart247 dotcom for stats on roulette and live casino games. It works for me
