What is your favorite gambling movie? Well, here is our Favorite Gambling Movie List.
To me, the movie “The Sting” is one of the greatest movies ever made and is my favorite. Probably the story and the music of Scott Joplin does it for me. Would you call it a gambling movie? I would. It’s consistently included in “Top Whatever” gambling/casino movie lists. I just think that it’s a classic movie that I could watch over and over and over, the NETG Favorite Gambling Movie List.

Call me crazy, but the one gambling movie that I could watch over and over is Lampoon’s “Vegas Vacation.” I can’t get enough of that weird casino with the game “Guess the number I’m Thinking.” I guess it’s not surprising it never caught on.
That’s all for now.
