The Top 5 Best Movies About Gambling

Gambling is tense, thrilling and most of the time, has an outcome you just can’t predict. Qualities like that are what make gambling a perfect basis for great movies. Setting a plot around gambling can lead to high stakes or absurd situations based only on a bet and the desire to win. Gambling can even be used in movies to frame relationships. Gambling is all about the tells and nothing lets you into a character’s head space more, than how they handle themselves under pressure.

So we’ve picked our favourite films that focus around gambling. We’ve tried to get a good spread, from comedies, to dramas, to straight up gambling thriller epics. So take a moment and check out our recommendations for the best gambling movies of all time. You may even discover a new favourite film.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, how many words is a video worth? Sometimes being told about a new casino or new game, or being given instruction on how to deposit using the newest banking system just isn’t enough. This is why we introduced our video section. Using the latest screen-capture technology, we spend hours capturing footage from casinos big and small, so that you can get a real taste of what navigation is like on a new site, or what gameplay is like on the latest game release. As part of Droid Slot’s mission to give you the most informed choice possible and where and what to play, our videos are aimed at helping you decide which casinos and games are for you before you have to spend a single penny, or even type an URL into your address bar.
