The film was partially filmed in the Caesars Palace Resort, Las Vegas.

Plot[edit]

The story directly follows The Conman, where Dragon's sister, Ching, has left to study in Canada. After King and Dragon defeat Macau Mon, they become swindling partners. Along with Dragons' older cousin Luk Chard, the trio try swindling a large amount of money from Big Eyed Man at his underground casino. While the trio are enjoying themselves, unexpectedly, Man sends people to kill them and kidnap Dragon.

King and Luk Chard are brought to the Senior Chinese Front. It turns out that they want to hire them to go to Las Vegas to complete a task: to catch Peter Chu, a man who was in charge of multiple Tofu-dreg projects in the past few years in China, and then stole a large amount of property and fled to the United States. Because Peter Chu is backed by many American politicians and organised gangs, they could not use diplomatic and legal channels to extradite him, they could only send a few gambling experts to catch him in the casino where he visits daily. King and Luk would receive $120,000,000 as a reward. Since King needs to give $30,000,000 to Big Eyed Man to rescue Dragon, he accepts the task and goes to Las Vegas with Luk Chard.

After arriving in Las Vegas, King and Luk Chard encounters two gorgeous ladies Betty and Sammi. The four of them set a trap and with the help of King's friend, adult film director Handsome Wu, they finally escort Peter Chu back to China and retrieve stolen money and rescue Dragon. After this, King and Betty also become lovers.
