LOGLINE

An urban film that follows Rocco (25), a games’ addicted player, as he finds his skill can set him on a winning spree, emptying new skill slot machines in less than an hour and taking on the road through Switzerland, pushing through the boundaries of a stale life and into that of self - discovery.

ABOUT

Gambling Time follows the events that lead to an infamous “fatal April” of 2005 in Fribourg, product of the transition by law that forced slot machines (by far the biggest money makers in legal gambling) out of pubs to concentrate in casinos.

Working into the law, small local slot machines producers Escor and Proms, keep their public venue’s licence by offering a new type of slot machines more related to the “skill” of its players than to actual chance. This proves a big miscalculation, for player like Rocco it is easier to empty a machine than crack a new video-game.

This is an untold story, a close to the ground account, the tricks around corporate manoeuvres to hold easy money making schemes turned on its head. It is a vindication film: the oppressed subject of a system finds a way to liberation playing by the rules.
