Luck is a lady in Atlantic City. Patricia Demauro stopped at a craps table. She took the dice and rolled and rolled and rolled. She didn't toss a seven for more than four hours. The casino says that's a new world record. Demauro wouldn't say how much she won. Her tablemates raked in so much cash, they were tipping the shooter with $100 chips.

DAVID GREENE, host:

Good morning. I'm David Greene, confirming that luck is a lady in Atlantic City.

Pat Demauro stopped at a craps table. She took the dice and rolled and rolled and rolled. She didn't toss a seven for more than four hours. That, according to the casino, is a new world record. As these stories always go, Demauro's just a beginner. She wouldn't say how much she won. Her tablemates raked in so much cash, they were tipping the shooter with $100 chips. Don't you wish you were there?

It's MORNING EDITION.
