A young blade runner's discovery of a long-buried secret leads him to track down former blade runner Rick Deckard, who's been missing for thirty years.

I hope you don't mind me taking the liberty. I was careful not to drag in... any dirt.
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.
