Buried Life Cast Makes Largest Bet in History

Buried Life Cast Makes Largest Bet in History at Golden Gate Casino

Whether you're a fan of the MTV hit reality show, "The Buried Life," or if you can see the excitement in someone gambling on TV to win a million dollars, you will certainly enjoy this story! For those of you who don't know, "The Buried Life" is about four kids who have a 'bucket list' of 100 things they want to do before they die. Number 75 on the list is to try and win $1,000,000 (one million dollars)! If you wanted to take on such a daunting task, where else would you go other than Las Vegas, Nevada - the entertainment and gaming capital of the world!

"I was contacted by the President of Fremont Street Experience, Jeff Victor, and he asked me if I was interested in taking the bet that was being offered by MTV," said Derek Stevens, owner of the Golden Gate Casino on Fremont Street in Downtown Las Vegas.

"I was surprised because I thought that one of the MGM properties or the Palms or Hard Rock would have done it. Because we're a small place, no one thought we'd be interested but I jumped at the opportunity. I figured we have the oldest [venue] in all of Las Vegas and this would be a great opportunity to publicize our total renovation and get people to know that we're a casino that's more like a nightclub than any other place in Vegas. We play music loud, have dancing girls inside and outside the building and the place is usually packed until 4 or 5 AM," Derek continued.

"We put the MTV crew up for a few days and eventually we got to the 'Big Spin.' The boys were obligated to bet $125,000 on an even money roulette bet and parlay it three times. The Golden Gate was obligated to take the bets as they kept winning."

The four kids from cast of The Buried Life brought in $125,000 and wanted to parlay it into $1,000,000. Although we don't know exactly what happened yet, Derek Stevens (Casino Owner) told us that "they end up making the biggest roulette bet in Las Vegas history." Prior to the filming, the largest roulette bet in Las Vegas history was $220,000.

How amazing is that?

The season finale of the second season of The Buried Life will be shown at 10:30 PM Eastern Time, 7:30 PM Pacific on Monday, November 29th. The Golden Gate Casino can be found at 1 Fremont Street, Las Vegas, NV 89101 or online at Go and check out THE oldest venue in Las Vegas History or catch it on MTV this Monday night!
