Yen Press is releasing the original manga in English under the title Kakegurui - Compulsive Gambler, and it describes the series:

Hyakkaou Private Academy. An institution for the privileged with a very peculiar curriculum. You see, when you're the sons and daughters of the wealthiest of the wealthy, it's not athletic prowess or book smarts that keep you ahead. It's reading your opponent, the art of the deal. What better way to hone those skills than with a rigorous curriculum of gambling? At Hyakkaou Private Academy, the winners live like kings, and the losers are put through the wringer. But when Yumeko Jabami enrolls, she's gonna teach these kids what a high roller really looks like!

A 10-episode live-action show premiered in Japan in January, and Netflix is streaming the series outside of Japan. A second live-action season and a live-action film will premiere in spring 2019.
