When you're playing a casino game, the last thing on your mind is probably cooking. Unless you're one of the chefs competing in this series that puts a gambling twist on cooking. Each episode features a foursome of chefs competing in three casino-themed cooking challenges -- slots, roulette and poker -- to win a $30,000 jackpot. In the first round the contestants spin the slot machine, which determines the type of cuisine, theme and main ingredient they must use for their dishes. Following an elimination, the remaining players prepare dishes using the same protein from the first round, but during the round the stations spin like a roulette wheel and force the chefs to continue cooking someone else's dish. After a second elimination, the final two chefs must incorporate an ingredient into his or her dish depending on a card that is dealt. The winner -- as determined by a rotating panel of judges -- takes home the cash prize.
