A valet driver at Crown Resorts in Perth smashed Escalante’s teal Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae into his purple one. (For context, the cars have an eye-watering price tag of around $1 million, making them one of the nation’s most expensive vehicles).

Craig Jones, Australian jiu-jitsu champion, uploaded a video of the crash to his Instagram account.

The driver can be heard saying, “Help, I’ve really f***** it up here”. The driver appears to have underestimated the power of the Lamborghinis as he was trying to park it.

A spokesperson for Crown Resorts has said the incident is still under investigation, but that there were no injuries.

Escalante’s spokesperson told that the casino operator was “working positively” with the billionaire to fix the car.

Escalante, 40, who is now worth a reported $3 billion, founded online casino Virtual Gaming Worlds in 2010. He’s previously flagged an initial public offer of the company, saying it’s likely to take place in North America rather than Australia.
