Ten Casino Films You Need to See

Ten Casino Films You Need to See

Published: Mon, 08 Oct 2018 by mFortune

Full of high-octane drama, nothing beats casino films. Jam-packed with bright lights, thrills, spills, and plenty of action, it’s no wonder that casinos have been used in some pivotal scenes in some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters.

And if you love casino films, you really are spoilt for choice! There are so many epic movies out there to enjoy, but don’t worry! We’ve narrowed it down to ten we think every online casino fan should watch. Here they are, in no particular order:

Molly’s Game

Staring Idris Elba and Jessica Chastain, Molly’s Game, follows the true story of Molly Bloom. Molly was an Olympic-class skier who ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker games – Toby Maguire and Leonardo Dicaprio were rumoured to be two of her A-List clients among many others – who eventually became an FBI target

21

When Ben wins a scholarship to the Harvard School of Medicine – and school fees of $300,000 – he turns to card counting at Blackjack. With the help of his maths professor and fellow students, they spend their weekends in Las Vegas counting cards and winning thousands. Ben plans to back out when he makes enough to cover his fees, but will he get corrupted by greed and find himself in over his head?

Ocean’s Eleven (Twelve, Thirteen AND Eight!)

The Ocean’s Quadrolodgy (if that’s even a thing!) just had to have a place on this list! The original casino film, Ocean’s Eleven, follows the suave Danny Ocean and his band of followers as they attempt to stage three simultaneous robberies at Las Vegas Casinos. There are four films in this franchise to watch, perfect for a wet and wintery weekend.

Casino Royale

This wouldn’t be a list of casino films without an appearance from 007 himself, and next on the list is Casino Royale. This film follows Bond on his first mission where he faces a mysterious poker player, Le Chiffre, in a high-stakes poker game. There’s all the action you expect from James Bond, with the thrills and spill of Vegas thrown in.

The Gambler

The 2014 remake of the casino film sees Mark Wahlberg star as an all-or-nothing, risk taking professor and high-stakes gambler. When he finds himself in too deep with a gangster and his life on the line, he ends up immersed in an illicit, underground world. Will he take the ultimate risk for a second chance at happiness?

Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels

A botched poker game in London sees four Jack-the-lads in over their heads when they lose half a million pounds. What follows sees worlds collide in a series of unexpected events all for the sake of drugs, cash, and two antique shotguns in Guy Ritchie’s infamous casino film, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.

The Hangover

Would a list of casino films be complete without The Hangover? When three friends wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas with missing teeth – and a missing groom – all hell breaks loose. They must try and remember what happened as they make their way around Vegas in a bid to find the groom before his wedding.

What Happens In Vegas

When Joy and Jack wake up married after a night of drinking in Vegas, things go from bad to worse when one wins a huge Jackpot using the other’s quarter. Unable to agree on who owns the money, the couple are ordered to live together to try and get their hands on the money. Admittedly, this casino film is a little predictable but who doesn’t love a rom-com!?

Two for the Money

Matthew McConaughey and Al Pacino star in this casino film about a promising football player forced out of the professional game by injury. He soon realises his quarterback’s anticipation makes him the perfect person to predict the outcome of the games. Soon, he’s headhunted to work in a gambling advising business, but – as you might expect from Hollywood – it’s not long before things start to unravel.

Runner, Runner

The final casino film on our list of ones you need to watch is Runner, Runner. Believing he’s been swindled in an online poker game, Princeton grad-student Richie – played by Justin Timberlake – travels to Costa Rica to confront the online gambling tycoon who cheated him out of his winnings. Seduced by the glitz and glamour of the promise of wealth, things suddenly go from bad to worse for Richie.

So there you have it! Ten casino films you need to see. Which of these have you already watched? Did we miss any off the list?

Promotional Terms and Conditions

Section 6: Valid Stakes, Bets or Wagers

You may stake up to the amount of the balance available in your Account. We do not offer Accounts with a credit facility.

Winnings which are generated from promotional free spins will go into your Bonus Credit Account.

When a bet or stake is placed and confirmed, the corresponding amount is deducted from your Account balance.

Game specific rules will be made available to you when you start playing a game. These rules can be located on the Website and within each game. These are referred to as the Rules of the Games. It is your responsibility to read and understand these game specific rules before you start playing.

It is your responsibility to check that the bet instructions you have submitted are correct before committing to play.

Winnings from deposits will go into your Cashable Credit Account.

All bonuses (including winnings from promotional free spins) will be credited to your Bonus Credit account and are subject to the Bonus Credit Wagering Requirement. Winnings from Bonus Credit will also be credited to your Bonus Credit account.

Once your Bonus Credit Wagering Requirement Balance is £0, any remaining Bonus Credit will automatically be transferred as winnings to your Cashable Credit account.

If your Bonus Credit Account Balance is £0, you should contact us to remove any remaining wagering requirements from your account. You can contact our Customer Support team on 01384 884468.

In the event that you withdraw Cashable Credit before you have met your Bonus Credit Wagering Requirement (i.e. before your Bonus Credit Wagering Requirement Balance is £0) your Bonus Credit and Bonus Credit Wagering Requirement will be reduced by the same percentage that you have withdrawn from your Cashable Credit. By way of example only: you have made a first deposit of £10, credited to your Cashable Credit account, and received a first deposit match bonus of £10, credited to your Bonus Credit account; your Bonus Credit Wagering Requirement Balance is £200 (i.e. 20 x bonus of £10); you play through your £10 deposit once on a slots game and win £50. Your Bonus Credit Wagering Requirement Balance is unchanged (as you have not yet staked any Bonus Credit); you are free to withdraw the £50 winnings, stored in your Cashable Credit account, but you choose to only withdraw £25 (i.e. 50%); as your Bonus Credit Wagering Requirement Balance is not yet £0, you will forfeit 50% of your Bonus Credit (reducing it to £5) and your Bonus Credit Wagering Requirement Balance will be reduced by 50% (reducing it to £100).

If bonus abuse is discovered we may at our discretion remove rewards as outlined in section 7b.

In the event that you stake both Cashable Credit and Bonus Credit, any winnings will be applied proportionately to your Cashable Credit and Bonus Credit accounts and your Bonus Credit Wagering Requirement Balance will be reduced only by the amount of Bonus Credit used. By way of example only: you have deposited £5, credited to your Cashable Credit account, and have received a first deposit match bonus of £10, credited to your Bonus Credit Account; your Bonus Wagering Requirement is £200 (i.e. 20 x bonus of £10); you elect to stake £10 on a slots game; as you do not have enough Cashable Credit to cover your stake, the remaining £5 (50%) will be deducted from your Bonus Credit and your Bonus Credit Wagering Requirement Balance will be reduced by £5 to £195; you win £50; £25 of your winnings (i.e. 50%) will be credited to your Cashable Credit account; and £25.00 of your winnings (i.e. 50%) will be credited to your Bonus Credit account.

When betting on our betting and gaming products, the percentage of your stake that will contribute to the Bonus Credit Wagering Requirement is as follows:

Betting and Gaming Product %
Slots 100
Bingo 500
Roulette 10
Blackjack 10

When playing with Bonus Credit winnings from Casino games, the wagering contribution taken from the remaining bonus wagering will be the contribution % of the Casino game that the winnings came from, regardless of which game in being played. For example, if you win £10 on Roulette, then play with that £10 in a Slots game, the wagering contribution for the slots play will be 10% (the Casino game Wagering Contribution).

  1. free spins (if any);
  2. any amounts in your Cashable Credit Account which comprise of winnings from bonus credit;
