Sentai Filmworks currently holds the rights to Doreiku the Animation. HIDIVE describes the show as:

Descend into the dark world of SCM, where you are labeled either a master or servant based on your ability to win a game of chance. A strange sequence of events leads a group of people to enter the game, each driven by a hidden agenda. In a game where the players advance their position through means of greed, deception, and power, what type of depravity will they reach to become the ultimate master?
