| This may have been a government supported initiative but so today are the lotteries
It is ironic how the film opens with a formal fake message besmirching illegal gambling in the 1940's and how one storekeeper takes it upon himself to break up the crime syndicate and yet today there is not one stand alone state that does not fully support their state owned and operated lotteries that encourage tax payers to gamble on their state run lotteries.

I guess that is why we now have states such as Colorado and Illinois that have now legalized recreational marijuana. So instead of a movie called Jack Pot the government may soon be releasing a new short film praising the recreational use of their own Party Pot.

I give this outdated short film a 3 out of 10 IMDB rating mainly for the hypocrisy of the time which still holds true today some eighty (80) years later.
