The Lucky Charm. The Sure Thing. The Long Shot. The Jinx. Beth Raymer came to Vegas to live the dream. Instead she winds up waiting tables in a low-rent diner and living in a fleapit motel.

Then she meets Dink, the King of Last Vegas sports betting.

Dink introduces her to the testorsterone fuelled underworld of high stakes gambling a dog-eat-dog realm of grifters, and strippers, wise-guys and hardened cons. New to the game but with big ambitions, Beth must get smart to get ahead.
