Pushing Your Luck is the fifty-seventh case of Criminal Case and the fifty-seventh case of Warrenville. It takes place in Market Zone, appearing as the third case of the district.


Following the discovery of The Phantom and their recent actions, the team decided to follow up on the black market's operations by investigating The Meridian Casino, where one of their affiliates was known to frequent. However, upon arriving there they found the body of Venus Sosa, a black market affiliate they arrested for murder previously, confirming she was the prisoner the Phantom let out.

The team began investigating by adding casino owner Nicole Webb, Ravagers gang member Tyrone Riggs, and accomplished gambler Yuliana Yaneva. Later on the team discovered a certain someone had been visiting the victim a lot recently.

After investigating the visitor's room, the team discovered the frequent visitor was Angelica Calderon, the protestor whose brother was killed by Venus. She claimed she was doing some personal investigating, but Sonia still believed she was mad at the victim for killing her brother. She was added to the suspect list alongside digital artist Liam Terrell. Along the way, the team discovered the victim had dealing with Tyrone in the past, however he claimed nothing about it was criminal. There were also reports of Nicole's casino being a meeting place for many criminals, hence why they found Venus there, but Nicole denied it. Soon after, Nicole demanded the team leave the casino or else they'd be forced out.

With the threat from Nicole in mind, the team hurried their investigation along. Along the way they discovered undeniable proof Angelica wanted revenge on Venus for killing her brother, but Angelica claimed she'd do that by finding more evidence of her crimes instead of harming her. Meanwhile, the team discovered that Yuliana had actually met Venus on her old talk show a while back, but she left it out so the police wouldn't think she was suspicious. And Liam had done some rather creepy imagery regarding the black market, but said they were just an inspiration for art and nothing more. The team later arrested Nicole for Venus' murder.

At first, Nicole just kept threatening to throw them out for giving baseless accusations, but after being presented with the evidence Nicole had no choice but to confess. She said that she'd been monitoring many black market activites in her casino for years as a fellow affiliate, and even as a safe space for escaped criminals. However, Nicole got word from The Conductor a few affiliates and customers on the inside were planning on telling the police a few of their secrets, so they called on Nicole to make an example with their latest escapee. Regardless whether or not Venus was loyal, Nicole followed her orders by gathering the affiliates at the casino and smashing Venus against a slot machine to spread the message that they won't allow their secrets to be revealed. She kept a stiff upper lip regarding anything else, so Judge Blackwell sentenced her to life in solitary confinement for the murder and all her other crimes.

Following the trial, Lydia went along with the player to get all the info they could from Nicole. Though for the most part she retained a stiff upper lip, she eventually said that she kept all black market info hidden in a painting hanging around the casino. After finding it and unlocking it, they discovered all sorts of financial info regarding the market, how its been using the money to finance all sorts of businesses, including with Biff Cunningham, the late CEO of Globeworks. It also spoke about the Ravagers and Demons, who the team previously drove out of Devil's Heart Valley, and how they were operating just outside of the district. But when they went to Tyrone with this evidence, he just ran out on them, and they were unable to catch him.

Meanwhile, Sonia assisted the player with getting a party together as the New Year was almost here. After getting things set up alongside Atticus, the team took the time to enjoy the party and welcome the new year together, swearing it would be the year they end the black market once and for all. The next day, the team got together and agreed their next move would investigate the gangs that were operating just outside of the district.
