What is the origin of Winner Winner Chicken Dinner?

1
How many actually die because of the red zone, what does the developer of the game, Brendan Greene, do for every million copies of the game sold, and where does the expression Winner Winner Chicken Dinner come from? We have the answers.
Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

Far from everyone have experienced it, and even fewer know the origin of the expression.

Some believe that the expression originated in Las Vegas, Nevada. Back in the days, a chicken dish cost only 2 dollars on all the casinos. That was also an amount often gambled with. That meant that you, by winning, could treat yourself to a chicken dinner at one of the casinos in town. The true story behind the expressions is something else, but it is still connected to gambling.

October 29, 1929, often referred to as Black Tuesday. It was the day of the big stock market crash leading to a long recession, called "the big depression", and it had only just started.

The whole world got affected by the crash, but the Americans themselves got affected the most. A shortage of jobs and low salaries, no new residences were built and people got evicted from their homes. People started to play craps on the streets. Because of the lack of jobs and money, many turned to gamble to earn their money. Citizens gathered in alleys and tried their luck, hoping that they would win. By winning they would be able to afford food for the day. Or rather, a chicken dinner.

Did you know about the story behind the expression Winner Winner Chicken Dinner? Here are some more facts about PUBG you might not know about

Did you know that...

... USING CAPITAL LETTERS IS COOL? THE GAMES DEVELOPER BRENDAN GREENE THINK SO. THE REASON PLAYERUNKNOWN´S BATTLEGROUND IS WRITTEN WITH CAPITAL LETTER IS THAT IT IS COOLER THAT WAY. DO YOU AGREE?

... Greene is generous guy? For every million copy of the game that gets sold he takes out the whole crew behind the game for a dinner. We wonder what they eat.

... That more players die from jumping out of a moving car than from the red zone?

... There is a way to improve your aim? When you are aiming down the sight you can press shift - by doing this you hold your breath and your aim becomes more stable at the same time as the zoom improves.

... The 23rd of March was the first time PUBG was played on Steam?
