Die Geschichte von Tier et Tout
Tier et Tout was thought to have been developed by a Spanish casino legend named Thomas Garcia in the mid-19th century. Garcia has tried many different roulette strategies , with Tier et Tout becoming the most popular of them all. If you look at his story, that’s not surprising either. He had huge success with this strategy.
During a visit to the casino in Homburg, he managed to win 240,000 francs. That corresponds to around € 220,000 today. Two weeks later he returned to the Homburg casino and this time won 500,000 francs. Even nowadays, such profits are still the exception.
More than a year passed before his next visit to Homburg. Because of his previous successes, Garcia’s expectations were probably very high, but this time he was out of luck. Not only did he lose his own betting capital, but he also gambled away money that he had borrowed. After that, Garcia was never seen again at the Homburg Casino.
