A profession that is shunned and vilified, gambling has often been mired in controversy. It can be fun, adventurous and most certainly rewarding. It certainly doesn’t seem stressful. But not when it becomes a profession.

For this group of eccentric characters, placing a bet is second nature, with most of them having been self-professed professional gamblers for decades. “The Best of It” explores the drama, reality, hangups and rewards that come with being a professional gambler. Through thick and thin, these individuals have relied on the age of old verisimilitude that gambling is too easy not to partake. As feuds grow, and statistics become skewed, these high rollers stop at nothing to earn their pay day – something that’s as unpredictable as the game itself.

Before catching “The Best of It” on digital platforms come May 3, check out our exclusive trailer above.
