Synopsis: “Bet Check or Raise” is a character study, buddy movie, and courthouse crime drama all wrapped up in one. There’s been a lot of movies about alcohol and drug addiction, but never really about gambling addiction. We see so many stories about casinos and the thrill of the win, but never about the aftermath of how it affects aspects of those gambler’s lives. What is so unique about “Bet Check or Raise” is that it has a cast largely made up of recovered gambling addicts, all of whom met through Gamblers Anonymous. This is a movie made by addicts, for addicts, and for those who can relate to the struggle and believe that we can prevail.
