First of all, I'd like to point out that the Ocean's movies are repeatedly confronting you with various references to persons and events which are only mentioned in passing and whose backstory is only hinted at slightly, but whose meaning and backstory is completely clear to everybody else except you as the audience.

If you have magnetic balls, and have slipped magnets into the wheel under 11, 12 and 13, then it makes it infinitely more probable that the ball will go to the magnet.

He would have said, "Do you think Nagel was right about causing a real earthquake?" See the deleted scenes at around 3:05 mark and watch as he is leaving the ...

I don't think people would have waited till next day to cash in the chips. There was big money at stake. Soon after the earth-quake had settled (which was only a few minutes), people would have went in to cash in the chips. Also, I don't think casinos can just change the chips without any reason. There definitely was fraud and Willy Bank knew it but the ...

Are you talking about when he was going through the elevator shafts? He wasn't putting anything inside of it, he was scouting to see if it was possible to access the diamonds via the floor or ceiling ducts. He determined that it would be next to impossible, so they decided to try another method. Hence, the shafts were never entered again.
