Re: Fallout: New Vegas

(a dead guy with 5 aces and red balls). I sense a reference to something whooshing over my head. While a deck of cards clearly has no more more than 4 aces indicating he was cheating, what is the significance of the balls? Is there a wiki for vegas and gambling lore somewhere? It's a reference ...
