Unidentified Frenchman Wins 30k, Makes It Rain…With All Of It

Reports have the birthday boy launching cash from a balcony.

Timing is everything. If you happened to be at the Moby Dick bar in Uruguay this past weekend then maybe you were in the right place at the right time. As reported by The Independent, a French gambler hauled in $30,000 from a casino while celebrating his birthday and was in such a good mood, he decided to make it rain.

On the terrace of the bar, the Frenchman threw the $30k in the air to share with anyone who happened to be in the vicinity. Reports have him spending a full hour, from 6:30am-7:30am, showering the crowd that had gathered. Finally, before it was all over, the man lit a cigar with a couple hundo, gave away the rest and decided to head back to his hotel at the Punta del Este resort.

As he went for a taxi, the man realized he’d given away the last of his winnings and had to borrow some back just to make it home.

Talk about it over at Reddit.
