Rampage (2009)

Rampage is a 2009 film centered around a disturbed young man who believes that the world is suffering from overpopulation and handles it himself by buying automatic weapons and armor. The film follows the young man through a series of graphic and violent scenes where he reduces the population himself.

In one scene, he ends up in a Bingo hall where he sits near the back of the building until eventually making his way to the front where he grabs the Bingo ball out of the Bingo caller’s hand. Rather than being upset about the gunman himself, the Bingo players are more concerned about the game being stopped and their bingo cards remaining blank. It’s a great scene to depict how serious Bingo players take the game!

8 Mile (2002)

8 Mile is a 2002 film that follows the life of a young man looking to make it big in the rap game. He lives with his mother and sister in a trailer park and is exposed to all of the elements of a not-so-great mother. His mom seems to care more about her boyfriend and her Bingo nights than she does her two kids.

However, she does come home one night with a $3,200 win from Bingo!

The Gambler (2014)

This 2014 is a remake of the 1974 classic, The Gambler. This film follows the hectic life of a full-time gambling addict part-time teacher. He becomes so buried in his gambling debt owed to loan sharks and an underground casino ring that he’s given just one week to pay off his debts or risk his life.

To help gather the money, he turns to a few of his students for help.

The Cincinnati Kid (1965)

The Cincinnati Kid is a 1965 film based around The Great Depression. This film follows the journey of one man who is determined to prove that he is the best poker player that the world has ever seen. However, this title isn’t given to him that easily.

He first must beat the best in the poker game, a veteran poker player named Lancey “The Man” Howard. It’s a great gambling classic.

21 (2008)

21 is a 2018 film based on the lives of several MIT college students who are mentored by one of their professors on how to count cards. They learn to count cards and use this trick to clear out casino after casino, using the won money to pay off student loan debt. However, their easy money doesn’t last long when one casino begins to pick up on their tricks!
