Did You Know?


In "Prince of Poker," several of the dramatized scenes depicting the 2000 World Series of Poker show many of the players splashing the pot which is not correct tournament etiquette and in reality the players would be warned of this. ("Splashing the pot" is poker lingo for throwing chips into the pile of chips that have been bet already.) See more »

Don't try this in Vegas
18 May 2005 | by SEAdragon2005See all my reviews

Breaking Vegas documents the attempts of various people trying to gain an upper hand on the house. While most of the methods shown on the series are technically "legal" in courts, anything that gives a player an advantage over the house will get you kick out and banned from the casino. Although each cheater has their own unique method, they share a similar story. They get interested in gambling and want to find a way to win more than the house, usually out of sheer curiosity. They develop their method and use usually with good results and a lot of money. However, the pressure of remaining unnoticed by the pit bulls exhaust them and they quit. If anything the show should warn the viewers not to try anything they watch on the show in Las Vegas.
