It's not set in a casino, but I really like Poolhall Junkies. The whole movie is about gambling, but its on pool.



Agreed that's a pretty good one. I used to watch an Internet show called Scamschool. They told you all kinds of tricks and puzzles to scam people out of beers at the bar. Not necessarily scamming, just friendly wagering, although one could certainly use it to scam and even make money in a bar. You won't make friends though. Anyway, I wanted to email the host this movie, and maybe there was a scam in there that they could use.

Alright you guys pretty much nailed all of them. So I racked my brain and came up with this, It barley meets the op's criteria but its a real good movie. The movie is RUN with patric dempsey circa 1991.

Tracy Pollan seems to have made the best bet in that movie... she dropped out just after the filming started.

Guys and Dolls, The movie with Marlon Brando sucked but the musical with worth seeing if it ever plays in a community theater near you. Adelaide's Lament is worth the price of admission alone.
Someday, joor goin' to see the name of Googie Gomez in lights and joor goin' to say to joorself, "Was that her?" and then joor goin' to answer to joorself, "That was her!" But you know somethin' mister? I was always her yuss nobody knows it! - Googie Gomez

Boy has imdb.com screwed up the "my movies" thing. There's no reason for that, I hate it when stuff like that happens.
the next time Dame Fortune toys with your heart, your soul and your wallet, raise your glass and praise her thus: “Thanks for nothing, you cold-hearted, evil, damnable, nefarious, low-life, malicious monster from Hell!” She is, after all, stone deaf. ... Arnold Snyder
