Former England Legend Tries His Hand At Electric Blackjack

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs scored one of the most iconic FA Cup goals ever in the 1999 semi-final at Villa Park. After he received the ball in the Arsenal half Giggs proceeded to run the length of the field totally bamboozling 4 Gunners players including the unfortunate Ray Parlour  before scoring one of the tournaments finest ever goals as he beat David Seaman to put United on their way to a famous treble. Giggs waltzed past England and Arsenal legend Ray Parlour that day making him look like a statue and while the Gunner has recovered from the embarassment at the hands of the Welsh wizard he still enjoys a visit to the casino as he did recently when he challenged The Only Way is Essex star, Amy Childs to a game of Electric Blackjack.

The pair tried their hand at Blackjack’s more stunning younger brother as they took on 888casino‘s Electric Blackjack challenge.

The duos chances improved with 888casino‘s Ultimate Blackjack Strategy Guide by their side as well as blackjack professional, John Scanlon, of Aspers Casino. The midfielder who spent a quarter of a century with The Gunners took his spot on the table confident of shocking his opponent.

Filmed prior to Child’s October announcement that she was expecting her first baby, to up the ante, the pair would receive a shock for any incorrect move.

Overseen by the master John Scanlon himself, could the former Arsenal man deal Childs a vicious blow?

It turns out the only way was defeat for the man who racked over 400 appearances for The Gunners. The TOWIE star enjoyed a convincing victory as relentless shockwaves were sent to the Romford Pele.

Both players agreed the ramped up version of Blackjack had made them more prudent in their decision-making, giving them a better understanding of the game.

“I know from my playing days that it can be tempting to make quick and rash decisions whilst under pressure,” said the former England man.

“But now I have a better understanding of the blackjack plays and know when to go for another hit. That electric shock hurt more than a Martin Keown tackle though.”
