    Casino gamblers who won millions by using James Bond-style hi-tech devices no longer have to fear prosecution by the British authorities.

    British police said the trio had done nothing illegal by pulling off an audacious coup at the Ritz using gadgetry to calculate where a roulette ball would land.

    The three are to be allowed to keep their $2 million winnings, officers said.

    Police had seized the cash and frozen bank accounts during a nine-month investigation into the alleged sting.

    The gamblers, described by police sources as a chic and beautiful Hungarian woman, aged 32, and two elegant Serbian men, aged 33 and 38, were alleged to have smuggled into the casino a laser scanner inside a mobile phone that was linked to a micro-computer.

    And all this time I thought James Bond wasn't real. I wish I could get m hands on something like that.
