Factual error: We hear Ace in the voiceover talking about Ichikawa, a guest at Tangiers, and Ace says, "About a year ago, he cleaned out a couple of casinos in the Cayman Islands." There have never been casinos in the Caymans. (00:19:10)
Continuity mistake: Lester gets beat up by two guys, but after they throw him in his car three guys walk away.
Other mistake: When the man goes into the casino and takes a suitcase full of money to Kansas, he is parking in a supermarket. Later in the movie, after a plane lands on the golf course the same shot of the car in the supermarket is repeated. Check for the same parked cars: a blue VW beetle and a red car.Sacha
Audio problem: When Nicky is at the airport having his suitcase searched by Customs, he says "If you find any cash in there we'll whack it up with ya" but his lips don't move in unison with the sentence. (00:27:50)
Audio problem: When Pat Webb is reading aloud the newspaper article about Sam Rothstein, his lips don't match when he begins the sentence reading "the Midwest bookmaker", and also the audio sounds spliced in. (01:31:15)
Other mistake: When Ace meets with Lester in the diner, Lester looks around at the guys guarding the exits. The camera pans around to show his perspective, looking first at the door directly behind him, and then the door to his right. Except the camera swings left for both shots, meaning Lester would've had to crane his neck around 270° to see the right-hand door while looking to the left.
