Continuity mistake: When Remo Gaggi is talking to Andy Stone about Ace cussing out the Board, there's a pack of cigarettes beside Gaggi in his car. The camera angle changes to show Stone's face, who is outside the car, and when it flips back to Gaggi, there is a Zippo lighter in place of the cigarettes. The camera goes back to Stone, and when it comes back again, the Zippo is gone and the cigarettes are back. And to top it all off, not once did Remo smoke in this scene.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Sharon Stone is talking to Joe Pesci about how De Niro had his guys beat up James Woods, there are 4 security monitors on the desk behind Sharon Stone. First, the top left monitor goes out. Next only the bottom right monitor is on. Then all four monitors are off. Finally, all four monitors are on again.
Audio problem: In the scene where Sharon Stone is talking to Joe Pesci about how De Niro had his guys beat up James Woods, at one point Sharon Stone says, "Oh C'mon." If you look closely her mouth doesn't move at all. Also if you listen closely, that line comes out on surround sound. When she continues her line it comes out on mono. It was obviously recorded.
Continuity mistake: When De Niro catches Stone and Woods in the restaurant, De Niro takes out some money from his coat pocket and lays it on the table. In one shot the money is straight, in another it is diagonal and in the final shot before De Niro picks it up it is straight again.

Factual error: When Joe Pesci is driving to meet De Niro, he has to change cars. The scene right before going to the garage, they show Pesci's car driving around a corner and at the bottom right of the screen, you see a lamp post with a bus sign on it that reads CAT. CAT (Citizen's Area Transit) wasn't established in Las Vegas until late 80's early 90's. Before that it was the Las Vegas Transit. This scene was supposed to be late 70's, early 80's...
Continuity mistake: When Ginger is arguing with the gambler at the craps table about "giving her a bigger cut", the man reaches for her purse to show her the chips she's been stealing from him. As she pulls the purse back, the gold chain strap breaks. The next shot of Ginger shows a repaired chain.
Continuity mistake: Jennifer has the diamonds inside her hair bun and she's shaking it to retrieve the diamonds onto the table. As Santoro slaps her face as a gesture to thank her and for her not to get smart with him, her hair bun comes loose and falls out into a pony tail. The next shot then shows Jennifer with the hair bun perfectly groomed again on top of her head.
Continuity mistake: When news on Robert De Niro not having a casino license first hits the airwaves, the news broadcast displays a still picture of Joe Pesci having a conversation with his friend Frankie. The picture that they use is when Pesci and Frankie have tooth picks in their mouths because they don't want FBI agents lip reading what they are saying. But that didn't happen until later on in the movie. So how could they have displayed a picture of a conversation that hadn't taken place yet?
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.
Character mistake: When the high roller Ikachawa returns to The Tangiers, Rothstein said he's betting $1,000 instead of his usual $30,000, so when he won, it didn't feel like he had won $10,000 (10 $1,000 bets), but felt like he lost $90,000, alluding to the fact that betting 1/30th of his normal bets made him feel even though he was winning $1k a hand he was missing out on the other $29k, or losing that. At ten hands won, at $1k/hand, he really would have felt like he was losing $290,000, not $90,000 as Rothstein says.
