The cartoon was never released theatrically (due to Looney Tunes: Back in Action's poor box-office performance); it was initially released on the Australian DVD release of Looney Tunes: Back in Action (from which Sam reprises his role as a casino owner) and was later included in The Essential Bugs Bunny DVD set.
Bugs is living in his rabbit hole that is just outside of Las Vegas, when Yosemite Sam builds a casino over it. Being given the option to gamble or get out, Bugs tries his luck. At every game he plays (blackjack, roulette, slot machines) he does not lose, much to Sam's consternation. By the time he leaves with a sum total of $8,042,123,297.55 (more money comes out of Sam, as if he was another slot machine), Sam is down to his last quarter. After reprimanding a group of cheaters, tells them that lucky medals, four-leaf clovers, horseshoes, or rabbit's feet are not allowed, and realizes that he has been hornswoggled.
Bugs has meanwhile used his newfound riches to buy a luxury hotel suite. Sam follows him shooting and Bugs is forced to win a prize car to outrace him; Sam, meanwhile, drives a giant pirate ship, complete with cannons. The two race out of Las Vegas and eventually make it to the Hoover Dam. There is a conveniently placed slot machine, which Sam uses his last quarter to play. He "wins", but the screen reads H2O, causing the dam to burst.
Sam phones Bugs, who is atop the now empty dam, to tell him, "I hate you, rabbit." Porky ends the film with his usual "That's all folks!"
