Nicky Nichols Shows Illinois How to Video Poker


Once upon a Bill Jefferson, Illinois trained our skullduggery specialists how to play the game. But now that the Prairie State is rolling out video poker, the student has become the master. Nicky Nichols, son-in-law of the Louisiana gambling legend that helped sink Edwin Edwards' riverboat, already made a fortune on the machines down the bayou. Now, he's running circles around fledgling bar machine barons in Illinois. The Chicago Tribune reports he's even brought a few legislators from the house that Huey built along for the ride.
