There was a show on TV in the Uk called Red or Black. According to the Gambling Commission, it made Roulette look easy after 4 millionaires were made on the show by simply choosing red or black.
A source told The Sun: 'Put it this way, if the Gambling Commission kicks up a big fuss about your show publicly, it is unlikely that you would go ahead with it.
'The Commission has concerns the show is glamorising gambling as so many people won £1 million last time and did the best part of nothing to get it.'
"If" the show gets back on air their will be some adjustments made to make it more appealing to viewers.
A source explained: 'The idea is to inject a bit more jeopardy. We could have the red players versus the black players in some sort of challenge.'
The ITV1 show was also a source of controversy when it came out that the first million pound winner, Nathan Hageman, served two-and-half years in jail for assault.
Do you think a program that gives players the opportunity to win a life changing amount of money glamorizes gambling? I saw the show and thought it was all pure luck. Those people were simply very lucky that day. If gambling were easy wouldn't we all be millionaires one way or another?
Aside from that, do you think that contestants should undergo a background check before being allowed to participate?
