When K goes to Las Vegas and enters the Casino he first spots several Bee Hives outside. This is a nod to the Novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" upon which the original Blade Runner film is based. In the Novel Deckard ends up keeping bees at the end when he retires. See more »
While exploring the abandoned casino, K gives a casual one-handed spin to a roulette wheel. The soundtrack adds the rattling noise of a roulette ball (or pill) landing in a pocket, even though K clearly does not pick up a ball or launch one.
Only about two-thirds of the wheel is seen before K spins it, so the ball could have been sitting in the non-visible third ; and the camera quickly cuts away, so it could not be seen flung out and spinning.
However, this cannot be so since a roulette wheel is designed such that a ball does not simply sit there, but will naturally roll into a number pocket, even if the wheel is stationary. And if the wheel is then casually spun, the ball is not flung out but will remain trapped in its pocket. This behavior of the ball is required to show that the wheel is not rigged.
And furthermore, the Accidentally Flung Ball scenario is not seen to happen in the "Time to Live" featurette, which has a longer shot of this scene where the camera doesn't cut away. See more »
I hope you don't mind me taking the liberty. I was careful not to drag in... any dirt.

Has this world gone insane? Are you all mad? Is it madness or are your deeds making me feel it is a crazy world? People are blowing each other up, presidents are blatantly lying in people's faces and getting their vote, ministries are making war and being called Ministry Of Defense, companies are polluting the planet and getting richer and on and on and on.
Here comes a sequel for a classic of cinema that is currently rated higher than its original. The professional critics dutifully according it superlative reviews is not a surprise. The weekly release of a new Marvel movie gets the usual high reviews from this bunch, which tells me they are on the take. How does one explain the 10/10 perfect reviews on IMDb? Do these reviewers actually believe this is the absolute immaculate and perfect film with nothing in it that could be improved in any way?? I would accept this world as a more sane place if you tell me this is a case of fake shill reviews paid for by the studio (as happened with Star Wars The Force Awakens and others). That I would believe and (sadly) understand. Otherwise, is there someone who really thinks this sequel is better than the original and is perfect?? This film deserves 2/10 for its images and graphics and not much else. The women are eye candies for sure so add another point, but otherwise the inferior music that goes off for no reason, the non-ending that is surely an attempt to set up more sequels and inane dialogue are a shame to the name Blade Runner.
Were the makers able to get away with using the name because Philip K Dick has died and cannot stop them?
