Russ Richards, a weatherman on a local TV station, sells snowmobiles on the side, but both careers are in a rut thanks to an unusually warm winter.
Russ's girlfriend Crystal appears on the State Lottery's weekly televised drawing, pulling the numbered balls out of the rotating bin.
With the help of a few of his less scrupulous friends, Russ figures out a way to rig the drawing and have Crystal pull numbers that they happen to own.
However, Russ discovers that making the scheme work and keeping everyone quiet about it is more trouble than it's worth.
