It has been all-change for Hendrix Greyson (Benny Turland) in Neighbours of late with the youngster moving into the Kennedy house following the departure of his disgraced dad.
He has also found himself with money troubles for the first time in his life and after a failed job at Lassiters, working for Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis) was never going to go well for him. He is lured into the world of blackjack and card counting by troublemaker Jay Rebecchi (Dhruv Malge).
But with Kane Jones (Barry Conrad) heading up the games and being someone to not get on the wrong side of, it seems that Hendrix’s money-making scheme could be about to go horribly wrong for him and all involved.
Tempted back for another game, Hendrix is sure that he can clean up again. But when Jay is forced to miss the game, he is without his card counting ally and he ends up making a loss. While Jay tries to reassure him that it is a good thing and will avert suspicion, Hendrix decides to throw a game himself at Number 24.
But when that game starts and Hendrix begins to do well, Kane adds another deck into the mix that throws Jay off of his counting game. This works in Kane’s favour as Hendrix begins to lose big and ends up asking Kane to spot him a significant amount of cash. Is Hendrix about to realise that he has got himself into even more financial worries than he had when this all started?
