It's every gambler's dream--find a way to beat the odds and empty the coffers of Vegas casinos. Some people get lucky while others scheme their way to riches.
BREAKING VEGAS profiles people who took on the casino system and came away with cash. Sometimes they got away with it, and sometimes the odds--and the law--caught up to them.
Many gamblers are seduced by a particular game. For Gonzalo Garcia-Pelayo, it was roulette. This Spanish patriarch's obsession transformed his family into a gambling enterprise, embroiled him in a vicious standoff with casinos, and threatened his life.
THE ROULETTE ASSAULT follows the international exploits of the struggling record producer who became a gambling legend. Shot in Madrid and Las Vegas, the program features interviews with Gonzalo, his son and team member Ivan, and Patrick Santacruz, the "cat" who ultimately befriended the "mice".
