21 is the title of the movie that’s actually based on a real-life story. The story follows a group of MIT students who decide to try and basically rob Las Vegas casinos by counting cards while playing blackjack. The main protagonist of the movie is Ben Campbell (played by Jim Sturgess) who is trying to come up with enough money to pay his Harvard Medical School tuition. Due to that reason, he joins the MIT students in their attempt. Needless to say, not everything goes according to plan and they all end up in quite a pickle.

Brilliant idea with great information

I’ve been using RunPee for a few years now and it’s basically a requirement of going to the movies for me. The best part of course are the “pee times” that give you cues, synopses and times for when you can pee without missing the most important parts of the movie. There is also information about the credits- length, extras and if there are any extra scenes at the wayyy end. Super helpful to just know that it is or isn’t worth staying. There is a timer function that will buzz your phone when it’s a good time to pee. I also appreciate that the app is very conscientious about it being an app you use in a theater- dark background, all silent alarms etc. I will always enjoy the experience of the theater even if I could watch things at home- but I’ve even used it at home to check for things like after credit scenes or other information too.

Eight Men Out

Eight Men Out is another great title for anyone who not only enjoys betting but baseball and the American culture as well. The story of the movie is set right after World War I and follows the events when the White Sox threw the 1919 World Series as 3-1 favorites against the Reds. Even though this is not a classic casino movie – due to the lack of actual casinos and casino games, it heavily focuses on the betting scene of that time period.

Molly’s Game

If you’ve never heard about Milly Bloom, this may not sound so interesting at first. But the movie Molly’s Game is actually a movie based on the biography of Molly Bloom. She was an Olympic-class skier who, due to a terrible accident had to end her skiing career. After that, she turned her attention to underground poker. Even though prohibited, she managed to become the goddess of this game and made her name arranging very dynamic high-stakes games.

Snake Eyes

For any Nicolas Cage lovers out there, Snake Eyes is a must-see title. In this movie, Nicolas Cage plays a dishonest detective who ends up investigating a shady bookmaker. This movie is arguably one of the best gambling movies out there jam-packed with action, thrill, and excitement. So, if you are a fan of such intriguing action-heavy movies, this one will be the perfect treat for you.

Win It All

Eddie (played by Jake Johnson) is a gambler who gets approached by a local Chicago criminal and asked to hold a huge bag of money for him. Naturally, Eddie agrees but due to his addiction, he ends up gambling all the money away. And that’s not even the first whole minute of the movie! As the movie progresses Eddie is looking for ways to make the money he previously gambled away and even manages to fall in love. So, if this sounds like something you may enjoy, grab those popcorn and get comfy!

Whether you’re a seasoned gambler or just a fan of the genre, there are many great gambling movies currently available on Amazon Prime and Netflix.

And if you want not only to watch a film but also try your hand in real life here you will get an offer to make it done.


While most gambling movies usually focus on the story told from the player’s point of view, Croupier is following the story – or rather stories – as seen from the other side. It follows the world of gambling and casinos from an entirely different perspective which many watchers found to be quite entertaining. What’s more, the movie heavily shies away from the all-glam Vegas high rollers and focuses more on the rough side of the gambling world. Due to this type of story, the movie received quite a lot of praise by the audience. So, if you’re interested in seeing the gambling world from the dealer’s point of view, make sure you add Croupier to your to-watch list.

Guns Girls and Gambling

If you’ve enjoyed Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels then you’ll definitely enjoy Guns, Girls, and Gambling. This movie has quite a similar premise as the previously mentioned one but it’s set in Las Vegas instead. The plot of the movie revolves around a “priceless tribal artifact” that gets lost in the game of poker and various characters who are interested in retrieving it. Some of the most prominent characters chasing after the artifact include a group of Elvis impersonators, a corrupt cop, cowboys, Indians and a prostitute.

The Hangover

If you’ve never heard of The Hangover, buckle up! This first installment of The Hangover trilogy follows a group of guys who are going to Vegas for one of the guys’ bachelor party. Not long after the begging of the movie, the groom ends up missing and the rest of the party finds themselves in a trashed suite with a live tiger in their bathroom. The rest of the movie the guys are trying to figure out what had happened to them and locate their friend who’s about to get married. This movie is a real comedy gem, so make sure you check it out.

James Bond: Casino Royale

This 1967 spy comedy film follows a retired “original James Bond 007” (played by David Niven) who is pulled out of his retirement to help uncover the mysterious deaths of other spies. Over the course of the movie, Bond realizes that the reason all the other agents and spies died was none other than sex itself. Eventually, by managing to resist all the temptations he is faced with, our 007 agent manages to uncover the real agenda behind everything and – once again – helps save the world.

Bachelor Party Vegas

Last but not lease is the Bachelor Party Vegas, and the name of the movie already gives you a pretty good hint as to what to expect. As the name suggests, a group of friends is heading to Vegas to celebrate their friend’s upcoming wedding. The thing none of them are aware is that the wedding planner they’ve hired is actually a bank robber. Aside from this “minor inconvenience” the group also gets involved with the cops, casino security and even a boyfriend of a porn star! Fun!


If any of these brief rundowns managed to spike your interest, we suggest you get comfy and give these movies a watch. As you can see, there’s literally something for everyone!
