I’ve loved this app for years and use it at the theater and home. Super easy to use and so helpful to know when it’s a good time to run for the restroom. I notify my kids when it’s close to time, so I don’t end up running them to the restroom multiple times. (Updated review from 4 to 5 . I’d had an issue with the app while at the theater and it was quickly resolved with FANTASTIC customer service. Thanks, RunPee!)

This post will review some of the best betting movies of all time.

1.   The Sting (1973)

The Sting is a classic betting movie that stars Paul Newman and Robert Redford. The film is set in 1930s Chicago. And it tells the story of two con men who set out to pull off a long but clever fleece on a ruthless mob boss.


Their method involves a complex betting scheme that culminates in a high-stakes poker game. The said boss, Robert Shaw, is a fan of this type of bet, making him the perfect target for their manipulation. The Sting is a masterpiece of storytelling and features some of the best betting scenes to be on film.

2.   Rounders (1998)

Rounders portrays a typical scenario of coercive gambling habits. While painting the picture of the underground poker world, it tells the tale of a talented poker player. Of course, one would expect a near-perfect A-game punter. However, things fail to take the turn he envisages as he loses all his money to a Russian gangster. Despite that, he is relentless and tries to make a comeback.


The movie is a must-watch for any poker enthusiast and features some intense poker scenes that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

3.   Casino (1995)

“Casino” is another epic betting production that stars Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, and Sharon Stone. Set in Las Vegas, it’s about a casino owner embroiled in a web of corruption and deceit.


The movie is packed with some of the most iconic betting scenes ever. That includes a high-stakes game of blackjack and a tense scene where a character tries to cheat at craps.

4.   Ocean’s Eleven (2001)

Ocean’s Eleven is a heist movie that features a star-studded cast, including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Matt Damon. Danny Ocean rounds up his gang of thieves as they plan to rob three of the biggest casinos in Las Vegas simultaneously.


With a thrilling scene where the team tries to rig a boxing match, the movie also captures big actions, witty rip-offs, and impeccable fashion styles.

5.   Molly’s Game (2017)

This movie is based on the true story of Molly Bloom, who ran a high-stakes poker game for celebrities and wealthy business people. However, she finds herself in trouble after she becomes of interest to the Feds.


Molly’s Game is a contemporary crime drama that stars Jessica Chastain and Idris Elba. It is a storytelling masterclass with exquisite betting scenes that will leave you awestruck.

6.   The Gambler (2014)

The Gambler is the story of a college professor who becomes addicted to gambling. His debt gets in over his head and causes him to borrow from his wealthy mom and a loan shark. Every time he does this, he bets all the cash away.


Without a doubt, Jim Bennett has no issues with taking risks. Whenever he borrows from a gangster, he presents himself as collateral. This makes the loan shark threaten the protagonist’s bloodline should he default on a deal. He’s a smart scholar and always a step ahead of his creditors. Moreover, his relationship with his student is one of a kind, with frequent admiration.

7.   Mississippi Grind (2015)

Two gamblers team up for a road trip down the Mississippi River in search of a big score. Along their journey, they get involved in every racetrack, bar, casino, and pool they can find.


Mississippi Grind stars Ryan Reynolds (Curtis) and Ben Mendelsohn(Gerry). Although a talented gambler in his own right, the latter saw his fortune change as soon as he became friends with the charismatic Curtis.
