Top 6 highest grossing Hollywood gambling movies of all time

AudiencePlayer: The Mission

Our Mission We believe that everyone should be able to start a profitable video platform.

The Relationship between Games and Movies in the Digital Era

In the modern-day, games and movies are influencing each other more than before. Although the gameplay is the most significant part of any game, movie directors use the gaming culture and language to come up with a script for their films. On the other hand, NetBet Casino games use filming techniques to make the gaming interface appealing to customers. Many movies are coming out with themed slot games, and you need to try them out. Currently, the filmmaking and gaming industry co-exists fan...

Well they and many others are all great films, but there's going to be very few who can argue ...

Anyone who is a fan of horse racing in the UK & Ireland will certainly have heard of the horse Tiger Roll. This isn’t an old, ex-racehorse either, Tiger Roll is still in training and currently gearing towards a tilt at the 2021 Grand National. It seems a little strange for a horse to receive a documentary while still in training, and the chances are that we will see a final chapter of this when the horse is retired to finish things off.

Some amazing short films to watch

One of the goals of cinema is to show you a full story arc and growth of the characters. For a film to fit a standard 90 minute run time, numerous scenes have to be left out and the final project must still convey the full message that the director is inspired by. With short films, you have to say what you want to say in an even shorter time, and on occasion, the results are phenomenal. The condensed structure makes for an enjoyable viewing experience that has a certain magic th...
