Lots of screaming was the reaction at the Aria hotel-casino after Leslie Sategna placed a $1,000 bet on the number 16 winning $35,000.
"I saw that it was in 16 and the whole place just erupted," she said. "It was insane." 
The 36-year-old California mother of two has hit the same roulette number three times in the last 20 years in Las Vegas on her birthday.

It started on Sategna's 16th birthday when she says she asked her father to place a $10 bet on the Number 16 at midnight Sept. 16. He won.

She made the trip to Las Vegas on her 26th birthday and repeated the $10 bet on 16 at midnight and won again.

She says she is planning to come back to Las Vegas on her 46th birthday to see if the fourth time is still the charm. She plans to up the bet to $10,000 from this year's $1,000.
