I call bullshit.
1 in 1,048,576 is only the chance of hitting a 20 win streak if you only gamble 20 times and no more.

The chance of hitting a 20 win streak within a larger series of rolls is considerably larger, though still pretty small.

It's not inconceivable though. If you assume there are 5000 players who have gambled, and everyone's gambled 100 times, then that's 500,000 rolls. The chance of someone hitting a 20-win streak among those rolls is ~ 15%.

Edit: There is actually a title you unlock when you've had a 20-win streak. Only one character has unlocked it, and given nobody else would know about such a title, I would suspect Vallen speaks the truth.

Default Title and description

Lost Vegassi Spirit You've won 20 gambling attempts in a row. Your ancestors must have been from the Lost City of Vegassi.

This is all the proof I can offer that I do indeed have a twenty win gambling streak.
