Plot:

Life seemed ideal for Laura Bancroft. Her family just moved to Reno so she could start an impressive new job raising funds for a wonderful charity. But one quick pull at a slot machine changes everything for this career woman and mom — Laura can't stop gambling. You won't believe what she risks for the thrill of trying to hit the jackpot. Real-life couple Delta Burke and Gerald McRaney are fantastic in this scandalous true story.

Facts:

  • This movie is based on a true incident, which resulted in all Nevada casinos being required by law to post the telephone number for GA (that is, Gamblers Anonymous), should any of their patrons need it.
