Derren Brown will gamble £5k on roulette live on TV

Exploiting a good run of publicity, Brown announces a new stunt

The British illusionist Derren Brown, who had the mainstream media in the UK trying to fathom how he was able to apparently predict winning lottery numbers last week (see previous InfoPowa report) has a new wheeze - this one using the game of roulette.

The Telegraph newspaper reports that Brown will gamble GBP 5 000 of a TV viewer's savings on a roulette wheel. The viewer will not even know it is their money until Brown calls them on the night of the show.

Casinos will pay out up to GBP 175 000 if the correct digit is predicted, which would be paid to the viewer if Brown is correct.

The series Derren Brown - Evening of Wonders (Channel 4) closes its run with a program titled Derren Brown: How To Beat A Casino, which will be screened on Channel 4 on October 2 at 9pm.

Brown is also attempting to use subliminal messaging techniques in a show to be screened tomorrow in which he says viewers will be stuck to their sofa.

Derren Brown: How To Control The Nation will show viewers a film which he claims will leave audiences unable to move.

He said: ''The second show is a piece of media which will be played to the viewing nation that will have the effect of rendering them immobile.

''Not all of them, but it will basically stick a lot of people to their seats.

''It's safe, it won't work on everybody, but it's applying what I do one-on-one with people on stage and turning it into a piece of technology that can then be broadcast - and it has never been done before.''

The programme will be shown on Friday on Channel 4 at 9pm.

The reason why your withdrawal was denied was due to you claiming MORE than four free bonuses without making a successful deposit between free bonus claims. Yes the bonus was sent to you to thank you for your previous deposit, but that deposit was more than a month ago.  We clearly state that all players need to adhere to free bonus terms and also ensure that they keep their free money redemptions to a minimum or alternatively make frequent deposits to ensure they maintain a health bonus to purchase ratio. You are more than welcome to claim free bonuses, but please make sure to deposit frequently  Regards Jason   thank you jason. yes  i know why i was  denied- as i said  i know your rules- it is me that i made an error when i see the thanks bonus- and  then i was  confused  when one day after i received an other bonus where i was eligible  that is all- you explained me  that te $40 was for active players  and $50 for no depositors - ok it is clear  for me now- just  a mistake- thank you fo r  your intervention-I am  not an  enough active  player so  i am no depositor- please i sent my documents  and i did no get a confirmaton about the  account  verification- can  you make something   for that please ? Thank you very much  for your help Jason  "

    "Hi! I started playing online casino in 2006, before I was playing slot machines in land casinos. i discovered the online casino world by simply clicking on a pub on the internet and it allowed me to open my first account on an online casino.Since I was passionate about slot machines, I preferred playing in an online casino instead of the traditional casinos because i found excitement in an online casino is much larger, it not only money but also save a lot of time while enjoying the same excitement at home.My first casino was Casino770, i started playing super multitimes progressive slot and I remember I won with good combinations.  "
