Summary:
Who wouldn't love to beat the odds? When a group of college students uses its math skills to win millions, life in the fast lane seems like a sure bet--until the casinos and the IRS catch up to them.

Slip back to the go-go '80s and '90s, when a group of shy, overachieving M.I.T. students by day morphed into high-rolling, big-stakes gamblers by night--with more than a few tricks up their sleeves. Backed by anonymous investors, they checked into hotels under assumed names and, pretending not to know each other, communicated with secret gestures and code words inside the casinos. Betting $50,000 a hand--and in their spare time partying in VIP suites--the students racked up millions in winnings before their ingenious scam folded.

BREAKING VEGAS features interviews and dramatic re-enactments which bring this gripping true story to life.

DVD Features: Bonus Documentary "High Rollers: A History of Gambling"; How To Win In Las Vegas--a how-to guide on beating the house with Phil Hellmuth; Interactive Menus; Scene Selection
