Louis puts his money where his mouth is, splashing his own cash with the high rollers on the tables of Las Vegas.

Louis Theroux: Gambling In Las Vegas

Louis Theroux heads to the bright lights of Las Vegas to meet the high rollers (and not-so-high rollers), and the casino managers (who're actually pulling in the dosh) in the city of sin.

Basing himself at the Hilton, one of the biggest hotels on the strip, Louis immerses himself in the glittering world of casino life to find out what makes the industry tick. From the smooth talking casino "super host" Richard Wilk to big-spending pensioner Martha Ogman (who has lost a whopping $4 million in her seven-year gambling career), it's a journey of giddy highs and depressing lows.

Despite the fact that lucky Louis manages to turn $500 of his own money into $700 on his virgin flutter at Blackjack table, he leaves with one predictable conclusion: the banker really is the only winner.
