Storyline

Slot machines have become all the rage and William 'Porker' Davis is making a fortune on all of those nickels and dimes. He soon comes under pressure from mobster Joe Bomer who's prepared to let him stay in business provided he gives the players a 70% return on their bets thereby making sure they will always come back. Davis agrees but when Bomer finds out the machines have been doctored to pay out less, Davis is soon on the run. Turns out it's Davis' friend and Bomer employee Benjy Liemer who has been fiddling with the machines and also providing Ness with anonymous tips. Written by garykmcd

Slot machines are back
19 December 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Slot machines are back in Chicago and they're under the control of Tom Drake. He and his goon squad headed by chief goon Mike Mazurki are running roughshod over all the independents including Gavin McLeod. So much so that when McLeod feels he's been pushed enough he kills Mazurki. Can't really blame him with a guy as big as Mike Mazurki coming if you can reach for a gun. But that's not how Drake sees it.

All this is being manipulated by Martin Balsam who has nursed a long grudge against both Drake and McLeod. He works for Drake, but he's about taking both of them out. And his wife Cloris Leachman is dissatisfied with her drab existence with Balsam is ready to take him out.

Robert Stack and the squad have little to do in this episode but see everyone kill each other off. Still they do it Chicago gangster style.
