Sleazy professional gambler Harold Benson (Rip Torn) discovers that he can always win against Las Vegas blackjack dealer Willie Brodax (Ken Wahl). In fact, Benson wins so consistently against Willie that no casino in Vegas or elsewhere will hire the seemingly jinxed dealer. When casino manager Milt (Val Avery) suggests the curse will be lifted if Willie wins something that belongs to Benson, the dealer pursues the older man's unhappy mistress, lounge singer Bonita Friml (Bette Midler).
