You can say a lot of things about Ray Parisi, but you can not say he is a quitter--even when the odds are stacked against him.  This is a hilarious story of a man who manages to lose everything: his wife, house, career, friends and yes, even his dog.  A former ESPN show host with a knack for sports, Ray tries his luck  at this local casino, betting on everything from the over/under on a game score to the color shirt the announcer will wear. It doesn't go well.  When it seems everyone is completely fed up, Ray turns to Las Vegas in the hopes of winning everything back.  Even though you get to know the character as a vulgar loser,  you will still find yourself rooting for Ray to win it all back.  Will Ray be able to win back the love of his life?  Has his luck finally changed?  No matter the outcome,  you'll find yourself laughing all the way to the final roll of the dice.
