Jimmy Delaney is on another bad roll. His ex-wife is cranky. Burglars clean out all the coins from the video poker machines at his saloon, Jimmy D’s. His accountant is missing – with all the bar’s money. He can’t get a loan because the IRS has a lien on the joint and a rogue revenue agent with a personal grudge is seizing Jimmy D’s on Friday unless he can come up with $50,000 in back taxes.
Losing streaks in Las Vegas can be the worst in the world. And then a mysterious woman enters his life. A karma-spouting planet-charting colon-cleansing floozy – the Dice Angel. Can Delaney save Jimmy D’s with a supernaturally hot hand at the crap tables at Luxor? Or does Lady Luck bite off, chew up, and spit out another Las Vegas loser…
