During the summer holidays of 1875, he travelled to France where – seeing the aged mechanism in the casinos with an engineer's eye – he observed the patterns of numbers which came up and was able to break the bank at Monte Carlo. His experience told him that wooden spindles, on which roulette wheels turned, were subject to wear and tear, thus creating a bias. He engaged a team of clerks to write down the numbers which came up at each table, and then analysed these to predict winning numbers. He observed that one particular roulette wheel had a tendency towards the numbers 17, 18, 27 and 28.

He placed his first bet on 7th July 1875 and won a considerable amount of money. Over an 8-day period, he won 2,000,000 old francs – about £400,000 at the time, or £26 million pounds today. He occasionally lost a bet to allay suspicion. Arousing the management's suspicions, the cylinders in the tables were changed around, but he had marked the winning cylinder and followed the winning machine around. Finally, the management replaced the winning cylinder.

Back in England, he gave up his job at the mill and bought property at Little Horton, Bradford.

He was buried at Bethel Church, Shelf. He left £200 for the upkeep of his grave and the painting of the railings around the grave. It has been repainted twice, and on both occasions, the painter died shortly afterwards.

It has been suggested that the famous song was not written about Jagger but another gambler who had similar success in Monte Carlo
