"Casinos are factories that use the laws of probability to produce profit. Loopholes in those laws do make it possible to divert some of that profit your way, but they're small and squeezing through them demands skill, determination and a lot of money!" - Robert Matthews.
Science writer Robert Matthews talks with This Way Up's Simon Morton about the laws of chance.
Robert Matthews' book Chancing it: The Laws of Chance and How They Can Work for You is published by Profile Books.
