100 best gambling and poker movies

by GamingHill | created - 13 Apr 2013 | updated - 18 Apr 2013 | Public

A list of movies related to Gambling and/or poker. This list is made for the users of the Gaming community www.GamingHill.com where you can find a lot of more Gambling related stuff (tools, reviews, entertainment, games, forums etc). Some of the movies I haven't seen myself, they were placed on the lower half of the list.

I placed some additional movies from 101th place that doesn't have enough Gambling in them, but still relate to games, gambling, poker or Las Vegas and that I think people with a interest to gambling will enjoy. The ordering is more random the lower on the list you get.

Try the quiz for the list - can you beat me? (GamingHill) http://www.imdb.com/games/guess/list:glgYVDZ5kQI
