The double nought seven chip crushes the goofy balls seven coin.

I recall that Casino Royale was a more gritty movie than the previous Bond releases. At that point, I believe the Bond franchise had to become more realistic because the Jason Bourne movies where so much better.

I agree and even before the queen passed away she featured in a bond film.... or was that just the Olympics? I can not remember the details fully.

I do remember seeing her with Paddington Bear.

It was the Olympics, although it did feature Daniel Craig as James Bond.
The Paddington Bear sketch was wonderful. Who knew her Maj was such a good sport. Simon Farnaby as the footman was pretty cool too.

I think I prefer Little Nellie, the Perth coin will be far superior quality and the casino chip covers a lot of different Bonds not just the Casino Royale ones as Bond loves a casino where Little Nellie just encapsultes Connery but I like the design. I remember my first visit to a casino thinking I would feel like James Bond but all I felt like was in the way of all the mad Chinese gamblers.

You're right about Bond and casinos. And your first experience at one is funny. Laughing

I thought casinos were like James Bond, they are nothing like this, the roulette table was full of Chinese men in carpet slippers for some reason just pushing and shoving thier chips onto the table at the last second. I got dogs abuse off some Chinese woman at Blackjack as well, she seemed to be under the impression my job was to set her up. Eveery hand she bust on she seemed to blame me for.

I'll take my statement back about your experience being funny. The real world deals a different hand than a studio controlled environment.

True fact, I have NEVER been to a Casino where I lost Money.

Every Casino I went to I won EVEN by just a pound or Dollar.... I spent hours in various ones and had memberships to some local ones.

But I never lost!!!!!

Then again I wont ever go back into one, so I guess I will die one day saying Winner winner chicken Dinner.. LOL

That's like me and scratchcards, I won £20 on my first one and £100 on my second one so I thought it won't get any better than this so I have never touched one since, I've bought some right enough but just to give away as gifts like the Secret Santa, give someone a chance to become a millionaire.

I hear you @admin and @Rod Panhard. I was at a Reno hotel and won enough in a few blackjack hands to pay for breakfast.
