An interesting look at mostly legalized gambling in the US
30 June 2019 | by johncg25See all my reviews

The series does show people flaunting money, but it also shows some of the same people losing big bets. Its a pretty neutral look as it shows the highs and lows, and doesn't sugarcoat betting, and doesn't demonize it either.

If you are at all interested in exploring the betting world, I would definitely recommend it.

(note the first episode deals with introducing the characters and talking about the economics and current legal standing, but if you watch the 2nd-4th episode it gets more into some of the hardships for some of the characters, which was just as interesting, and made it more balanced.)
