Fletch is caught up in the inmates’ mania for gambling and, working on the farm, has lots of eggs to use as stakes. After Fletch loses a bet with fellow con Ives, he is delighted when Mackay catches Ives with the eggs on him. However, Ives gets revenge by tipping Mackay off about an illegal Snakes and Ladders game run by Fletch in the coal-hole, to which he was not invited. Cue coal being emptied onto the players. However Fletch has the last laugh when he is moved to a single cell …having bet everybody else that he would be.
