Corrected entry: Duke offers to get the casino owner's money back for a cut of 30%. When he figures out that Danny's group has the money, he demands half. Bad deal - he'd have to have 70% just to break even.

Correction: Santos appears yes to be a rather greedy character. But even so he is ready to go behind the casino owners because of Jimmy's mother who he is going to marry. Specifically stating to Danny Ocean that if he and his friends had been professionals mobsters, he would have put them out but because of Jimmy he rather just get in on the whole thing. So this is more of a character actually willing to cut down a bit the money he gets rather than plot hole. Of course with the threat of taking this all to the police if they refuse.

Character mistake: In one scene, one of the people suggests that Danny Ocean should run for President, and the first plan of action was to repeal the "13th and 20th" Amendments to the constitution, allowing women to lose the vote and go back into slavery. The 20th Amendment has nothing to do with women's right of voting, that is the 19th Amendment. If the 20th Amendment were repealed, the President would again take office on March 4th in the year following the election.
