In the movie, Uncut Gems, Adam Sandler walks into a restaurant and bets 24G(24,000) dollars with a well dressed guy sitting and eating at a table.

Adam Sandler tells this guy what stats he bets on in an upcoming NBA game and this well dressed guy writes them down on a piece of paper.

Later in the movie, Adam Sandler makes lots of money from betting in a proper Casino, which is legal.

I am wondering if the first bet in a restaurant is legal? Given it looks so un-official and casual.

  • [haven't seen the movie, it's just a question] - Isn't that guy simply a bookie (means: illegal)? As any official office would deliver a proper receipt for the money/bet, not write it on a piece of paper.

    Are sure they didn’t say "24Gs" and not "24G dollars"? A “G” or "grand" is one thousand dollars, it is not simply one thousand. There’s no such thing as "24G miles" or "24G cookies". In other words, "24G dollars" means "24,000 dollars dollars". "24Gs" means "24,000 dollars". Apr 1, 2023 at 0:29
