Continuity mistake: During the scene in which Ben is introduced to the card-counting group, several members are sitting at a blackjack table. There are cards on the table in front of them. In the first shot, the cards are face up, in the next, they are face down, then they appear face up again. While no one is seen or heard dealing cards, the number of cards on the table changes in several shots.
Visible crew/equipment: In the very beginning of the movie, Ben is seen riding his bike over the bridge in an aerial shot. Near the top of the screen, if you look carefully at the end of the bridge you can see a police barricade at the end of the bridge. It is there because the bridge is closed for filming.
Question: I was under the impression, although I may be wrong, that winnings in Vegas are taxed over a certain amount, and that this is done in the casino when cashing out. At the end of the film, Lawrence Fishburn says that the IRS will be wanting to speak to Kevin Spacey, but how were they able to cash out the amounts they won whilst using fake id's? It doesn't mention it in the book either - I know for the purposes of the film this is soemthing they can gloss over, but I was wondering if it would be possible to win the amounts they are talking about and simply walk out with the cash? I know in one part they cash it in in smaller amounts, but surely the casino would be aware of a huge win on one of the tables, and would be expecting a big cash out?
