After all -- well, really... After all, gentlemen, it was becoming abundantly clear that all those identical detectives in prismatically changing cars were figments of my persecution mania, recurrent images based on coincidence and chance resemblance. Soyons logiques, crowed the cocky Gallic part of my brain -- and proceeded to rout the notion of a Lolita-maddened salesman or comedy gangster, with stooges, persecuting me, and hoaxing me, and otherwise taking RIOTOUS advantage of my strange relations with the law.

Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita

What is riotous advantage?
Is it used to mean abundant?
