Dr. Foster claims that Roulette has the worst odds in a casino. This is incorrect. Players can win 94 cents on the dollar at Vegas Roulette (97 cents in Europe). This is worse than Blackjack (roughly 98 cents per dollar), but better than slots (between 80 cents and 94 cents on the dollar). But payout is still far better than Keno (75 cents on the dollar) or even state-run lotteries which offer payouts around 50 cents on the dollar bet... and then they tax you if you win. See more »

Good fun - some sexual tension
22 June 2012 | by (Glasgow) – See all my reviews

Thought this was fun, but not the most intriguing episode.

A hayseed entry to a poker tournament disappears and the tournament holder calls in the Lightman Foundation.

Turns out he has been banned from Vegas because he took down some high rollers.

There is a fun gambling sub-plot which is amusing and also some purposely stereotyped poker players.

The chemistry between the Dr and Poppy is palpable, and that has a twist to it later which is quite amusing also. Don't trust anyone in Poker.

Some of the game-play tactics the players adopt against each other are fun and it's quite a quick fire episode, so hence the rating 7 out of 10.

Bit confused about the relationship between Tim Roth and Kelli Williams after the 2 previous episodes given what happens here. It may well be explained in series 1 which I missed.
