America is the final destination on Jonathan Rendall's gambling journey. From Atlantic City to Vegas, the late writer tried to reclaim some profit from the £12,000 that Channel 4 had given him to gamble.

The programme examines the stories of punts and punters of assorted levels of success, including Denis Nickrasch, who legendarily stole ten million pounds from slot machines and ended up in Big Spring Penitentiary, Texas.

But does Jonathan return to England enriched, or impoverished and disillusioned?
