Kitchen Casino uniquely combines cooking with gambling-themed games that not only test chefs' abilities to think — and cook — on their feet, but that also test their abilities to strategize, whether that means playing the game fairly or a bit dirty. At the start of the show, four chefs enter the casino, but after three rounds, only one chef can leave as the winner. That person has the opportunity to triple his or her earnings in a final game of chance — but there is a risk of going bust, which means leaving empty-handed. But without risk, there is no reward.

If you haven't already tuned in to the new show on Mondays at 9|8c, FN Dish breaks down the game, round by round.
