Wilson Tong (Bloody Fight) directed this minor but well-cast variation on the successful God of Gamblers series starring Chin Siu-ho as Yan Chi-yung, who joins his fellow Triad member Chu Chi-ang (Norman Tsui) in ripping off millions in gambling profits from their underworld boss, Tai (Chen Kuan-tai), returning most of it after taking some for themselves. Meanwhile, a sexy gambler named Ice Chan (Ellen Chan) -- whose father was murdered by Tai several years before -- arrives from America looking for revenge. She tries to infiltrate Tai's organization by seducing Yan, but really falls for him and fails in her attempt to assassinate Tai behind his back. More trickery and double-crosses follow, as Tai tries to get Yan and Chu to help him rip off another gambler, only to have his plans thwarted by a turncoat within his own gang. Henry Fong, Johnny Wang, and even Lo Lieh show up along the way.
