* ''Series/TheUntouchables'' has a much darker variant, where two rival mob bosses play a game of cards where the stakes aren't the ''lives'' of their henchmen, but their ''deaths''. Cue a DeathMontage of the "chips" being cashed in.

* In the ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'' quickstart, one of the characters won an NPC ally this way (said NPC bet himself, and expects to be free after three tasks). [[spoiler: Later on, the PCs have the option of trying to win back one (or possibly more, if things go badly enough) of their souls like this. Betting the NPC is listed as a way to get the opponent to bet said soul, but dings [[Main/KarmaMeter Wisdom]].]]

* In ''Film/AmazingGrace'', William Wilberforce pulls out of a card game when his opponent bets a slave. Needless to say, a serious example.

Added DiffLines:

* In a chapter of ''Fanfic/ShadowchasersTournamentOfShadows'', Bruno gets the idea to up the ante in one duel, wagering Alice of Despairland for his opponent's card Lost Time. Unfortunately, Alice is a sapient card, and she is ''very'' upset he would do so without so much as asking her. He nearly loses the duel as a result, as he is unable to draw her card if she doesn't allow it, and does badly until they come to an agreement - with a rather thorough apology from Bruno.

* Literature/ErastFandorin bet the heroine against a donkey in ''The Turkish Gambit'' (both the book and the movie), for a lack of any money or means of transportation. But then, as he is quick to point out, he was BornLucky, and so knew he was not risking anything.
