Children from influential families in politics and businesses attend the Hyakkaou Private Academy. There, the hierarchy of the students is classified by a series of games. Students that win the games are on the ruling side, and the students who lose become slaves. One day, a mysterious girl, Jabami Yumeko, is transferred to Hyakkaou Private Academy. She looks pure and pretty, but she is actually a compulsive gambler and seeks out the thrill of taking calculated risks. ~~ Adapted from the manga "Kakegurui" (賭ケグルイ) written by Kawamoto Homura (河本ほむら) and illustrated by Naomura Tooru (尚村透).

As someone who watched the anime earlier this year, I really enjoyed the drama version. This series is fairly similar to the anime, a good amount of the battles and everything ring pretty true. One major difference is which battles they show. The drama doesn't get to all of the gambling matches that the anime does, but I have high hopes that they'll be featured in season two. The actors are really great, and in my opinion, fit their characters pretty well. Their acting is a bit over dramatic, but what can you really expect when you have such insane characters? Plus the way they behave can be quite funny at times, so much so that I found myself laughing uncontrollably XD Overall this drama is pretty good, and very entertaining. I highly recommend it!

If you are going to watch this, be prepared for the overacting. I didn't mind it because it was obviously an intentional choice and ALL the roles are overacted. I've never watched the anime or read the manga, so I can not say how true it holds to the source material. However, the games are enjoyable (and so are the methods of cheating). It is satisfying to watch the heroine outsmart her challengers. I hope they do a season 2 so that I can see how it all ends. As it is, it ends rather abruptly and without answering many of the questions it raises.
