Here is my best explanation:

'hopelessly drunk' is the definition.

'game of chance after bishop' is the wordplay.
'game of chance' becomes 'lotto' (I've seen this before).
'after' says to put letters next to each other.
'bishop' becomes 'b' (abbreviation used in chess).
'lotto' put after 'b' is 'BLOTTO'.

'gets' is the link.
