American Marcus Wendell opens his first British casino, proclaiming his hatred of cheats. He tells how, at the very first Wendell casino a hundred and fifty years ago, Albert's great grandfather was branded a cheat, which Albert denies. Marcus knows that the gang are hustlers so that, when they agree to help Albert clear his ancestor's name in a grudge match, they are at a disadvantage. An elaborate scheme to sell Marcus a supposedly antique roulette wheel which is rigged backfires but fortune literally favours Albert when Marcus's own wheel, a family heirloom, proves that his ancestors were less honest than they claimed.
Albert has a score to settle when an American casino owner, Marcus Wendell, opens his first gambling parlor in London. The Wendell family prides itself on always having run legitimate gambling houses and Wendell plans on doing the same in London. He even has a wall of shame which includes the photos of gamblers caught cheating. One of those photos is that of Albert's great-great grandfather. Albert had heard the story from his grandmother and wants to clear the family name. They set up their con but apparently stumble when Wendell remains one step ahead of them. Never fear, the con artists know exactly what they are doing.
