French Casino

Entrance close-up

An unnamed French casino is a corrupt casino located somewhere in France.

Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward visits the casino in The Duchess Assignment and spots a friend, the Duchess of Royston, who is playing roulette at another table. The Duchess tells her that she has lost everything except her precious Braquasso painting, "Portrait of a Gazelle". Two crooks, Chandler and Brophy, overhear their conversation. Lady Penelope realises that the table is fixed and causes a scene, but the crooked casino owner escapes with the Duchess's money.

The Owner's OfficeEdit

From the office inside the casino, the owner can be informed of trouble by a flashing light, which in the episode gave him time to make his escape with money he has made by fixing the tables.

He narrowly gets away after Lady Penelope realizes that the tables are fixed. She sends Parker after him, and after a short gunfight, he makes his escape in a car.

The Casino's Roulette TablesEdit

There are six roulette tables in the main room of the casino, and at least one of them is fixed which allows the croupier to determine the winning number, ensuring the players lose their money.
