A record-setting night for one gambler in Atlantic City. While playing craps at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa on Saturday night, Patricia Demauro of Denville set a new record for the longest craps roll by hanging on for four hours and 18 minutes. Borgata officials said that bested the previous mark of three hours and six minutes, set nearly 20 years ago at a Las Vegas casino.

Demauro bought into a game for $100 at about 8:13 p.m. and quickly amassed a large crowd of cheering supporters. When she eventually "sevened out" around 12:31 a.m., after 154 rolls of the dice, she was greeted by Borgata with a champagne toast.

"This was only my second time playing craps, so this was very exciting for me to be a part of history," she said.

The casino would not disclose how much Demauro won during her stretch at the table.
