Those two animes have very few in common.
Art is totally different, Kaiji has a mature feeling without any anime cliché, one is fantastic and the other not.
However, just because they're not similar doesn't mean you won't like one another.
If you enjoyed Sora's point of view, how tricky he acts, how gambles work, and how easy is to mindf*ck someone while playing, you'll love Kaiji.
That part is similar.
They both will make you think "Oh God, That trick is totally legit! It makes sense!"

Both make somewhat simple games appear to be extremely complex and strategic on an extreme level.

It may not seem so at first glance but these Anime are extremely similar.

Both are Animes about gambling where gambling is the only means to survive and thrive.

Sora and Shirou gamble against the other species to free imanity which had been driven to a corner by the other species.

While Kaiji gambles to save himself from debts.


Characters frequently use cunning ploys and deceit to best each other in both Animes.

No game no life is based on a fantasy world and is more comedic whilst this is based on the real world.

In both series the characters are stuck, they can't escape without winning. In both series they need to play a game to win, they need to use their brain and outsmart their opponent.

Similarities:

* MC's play games with their lifes on the stakes.
* MC's are extremely clever and great strategists.

Differences:

* Kaiji is darker is a depressing way (He's considered a loser and treated like crap). On the other hand, NGNL is a fantasy anime setted in a colorful world.
* There's no comedy in Kaiji.
