Of partcular note—Viktor offhandedly appends "with ice pick, probably" to his description of Mordecai's murderous glare. Mordecai protests that "that wasn't remotely like the ice pick look." Emphasis added.
Apparently, a good day for Viktor involves winning "all of the money" and then using said money to buy a rather sizable amount of land. Sounds like a normal enough goal, until you actually see the particulars.
