Among Vegas gambling lore, there’s no greater figure than Archie Karas.
Jack Binion once said he never met anyone with more gamble in him than Archie Karas. And he should know. During a span from around 1993-95, Karas reportedly went up as much as $22-45 million at Binion’s playing craps and poker. Karas won millions off Chip Reese…and blown millions back rolling dice.
