Underbelly:  A Tale of Two Cities

Gambling911.com has learned that upcoming episodes of Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities will feature "some casino and gambling themes".  The show's second season was the highest rated launch in Australia's history.

George Freeman, played by Peter O'Brien, ran a number of Australian casinos (gambling houses... "with no name" and unadvertised, sort of the opposite of casinos to that of the James Packer's Crown Casino (which is all above board and advertised, mainstream and is legal etc).

As we have come to learn, the world of casinos and bookmaking in Australia is quite fascinating to say the least, and this should play in superbly with the Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities theme.

Media man, Greg Tingle gives us a taste of the old school gambling lifestyle in Australia:

"My grandfather, Eric Fraser Cameron Tingle ran a SP bookmaker operation from Newport Beach plant nursery which also doubled as a barber shop... tripled as a SP hangout.  Today Newport Beach TAB is next door.  A decade ago I used to regularly have a punt at the TAB with the late, great (and notorious) Big Time Bristow.

"I caught up with Tim at his home at Newport, just around the corner from my old home at Pittwater, 3 weeks before Tim's unfortunate (and natural) death.  I pointed to Chris Master's book entitled 'Not for publication' and the chapter entitled, Guilty Buildings'.  I recalled to Tim, ‘That's you isn't it Tim?'  TB replied, ‘You nailed it in one Greg'.  That's the scoop... its never been published or put in the public domain before."
