Aufgrund seiner guten Ergebnisse als Mathematikstudent am renommierten MIT, erhält Ben Campbell ein verlockendes Angebot. Sein Mathematikprofessor Mickey Rosa will Ben in sein sechsköpfiges Black Jack Team aufnehmen, das er im Kartenzählen professionell ausbildet. Denn Rosa hat eine Formel entwickelt, mit der es möglich ist, alle Las Vegas Casinos um Millionen Dollar zu erleichtern.

Las Vegas 21

Ben Campbell, étudiant doué au prestigieux M.I.T., est contraint de partager son temps entre ses études et petits boulots afin de pouvoir payer ses frais de scolarité. Lorsqu'un groupe d'élèves aussi doués que lui le repère, ils lui proposent de participer à un jeu bien plus lucratif... Tous les week-ends, cette petite bande de mathématiciens hors pair se rend à Las Vegas pour jouer au blackjack sous de fausses identités, avec des règles qui ne doivent plus rien au hasard. Guidés par le professeur et génie des statistiques Micky Rosa, ils ont compris comment prévoir les cartes et communiquer entre eux pour rafler de très grosses mises. Séduit par l'argent facile, la vie de rêve et Jill, sa très belle équipière, Ben multiplie les défis. Les risques augmentent pourtant rapidement avec les mises, et les cartes ne restent pas longtemps son seul adversaire : il doit désormais se méfier de Cole Williams, le plus terrifiant des hommes de main des casinos.
