Odds On takes you deep down into the world of online gambling; from that first win, all the way behind the screen to give a game’s-eye view of how your fellow players are really doing.
Log in to 'Pearls of Fortune', the online slots game that’s caught us all in its net, give yourself a fun name, pick an adorable avatar, and plunge beneath the waves for a few spins.
Follow Felicity, a valued customer, and peer beneath the murky depths to see how a cheeky spin can spiral out of control.
Dive in to win!
“A stunningly clever hybrid of intimate drama, film and gameplay.”
Running time: 40 minutes
Age suitability: 14+
Access: The film has embedded captions and optional audio description.
Warnings: Strong language and scenes of gambling that some audience members might find upsetting.
The film contains gambling (live play, images, sounds and slot simulation) which may be very triggering to people with a gambling addiction or who are in recovery. A full support pack for anyone who may be affected by the issues raised is available here.
If slot machine simulation will be triggering for you, a non-interactive version will be available to watch instead.
