The story of High Rollers revolves around three brothers divided by a love for money, family and God. It is an inter-generational family saga that plays out in the high stakes world of casino’s tables, church aisles and behind bedroom doors, pitting against each other three of the pillars of South Africa – family, money and religion.
In the world of high stakes gambling David King, the youngest King brother, owns and operates Kings Casino and 5 star hotel complex in the north eastern outskirts of Johannesburg that he built from scratch on his family’s property. He considers the business a family affair and for the past 15 years his childhood friend, Thato “TT” Mogale, has been his right hand man and the public face of Kings Casino. While David is a slick businessman and orchestrates the behind the scenes machinations, TT brings the personality factor necessary to keep the customers happy and the money flowing. Paul King is the oldest King brother who went to jail 17 years ago for murdering his and David’s father, but has since found true faith in God.
It is Paul’s release from jail on probation that spurs the King family into chaos, revealing unresolved questions surrounding that fateful night when Charles King was murdered. The stakes get higher and higher as the three “brothers” battle to maintain a working relationship and manage their own families, as well as keep a successful casino from ruin… but let’s stop there before we let the cat out of the bag.
