Les jeux sont faits

It appears that three Eastern Europeans have won £1.3 million at London’s Ritz Casino using software which turned their mobile phones into scanners that calculate the roulette ball’s speed and its likely landing place.

It is also unclear whether the trio technically broke the law.
