He wagered $35,000 in casino chips on single number 32. As the croupier spun the wheel and the ball, friends, players, casino staff and curious bystanders gathered closer and followed the small white ball as it spun, before it dropped and bounced around the roulette wheel. The ball finally landed on the number 32! Erupting in cheers and shouts of jubilation, the casino came to life as Bartelle and his friends hugged and danced to celebrate his $3.5 million win.
