In the summer of 1891, a steady Charles Wells “broke the bank,” always bets on numbers below him. Three days after such a stunning game, he won a million gold francs and returned to his native London, where he was triumphantly received as a national hero. His adventures even formed the basis of the song “The Man Who Found the Bank in Monte Carlo”. Everyone was looking forward to his new arrival in Monaco. However, casino security too. And he died!

He appeared in court in England and was charged with fraud and sentenced to eight years in prison. The secret of his incredible success remained unsolved. Or maybe there was no secret?
