The Most Popular Casino Games Shown In Movies







Throughout the history of the cinema, casinos have been a great inspiration for many movie makers.  Naturally the ways in which modern casinos are depicted, along with the modern ways in which the old casino are depicted, are very different today than they were depicted in the old silent movies and early talkies. This isn’t just a quirk of modern filmmakers' fashion as casinos have changed dramatically as has the image that most people have of them. Once seen as a preserve for the richer and more aristocratic members of society, today casinos are far more cosmopolitan, and it is that which comes out in modern movies. Just as the perceived ethos of casinos has changed, so have the games that are played in them.
Early movies tended to feature games such as chemin de fer (a form of baccarat played by high rollers) and roulette, always a great cinematographic backdrop which oozed both glamour and excitement. However, although roulette still features strongly in casino movies, chemin de fer has been largely replaced by more popular games such as TEXAS Hold’em Poker. For instance, while in Ian Flemings’ original novel Casino Royale and in the first "Casino Royale"movie the game that James Bone played against Le Chiffre the SMERSH paymaster was baccarat, in the latest remake the game was replaced by one of TEXAS Hold’em Poker.


Poker in its various forms features in many movies and sometimes it is depicted as dark and threatening, while in others it is treated as glamorous and exciting. Some movies, for instance "Rounders", have achieved cult status amongst the poker playing fraternity. Card counting has featured in many movies including "21", the true story of card counters from MIT to "RainMan", starring Dustin Hoffman as an “idiot savant” with a photographic memory with a penchant for counting cards. Naturally in these movies the featured game is blackjack. However, even though it is rarely central to the plot, the most ubiquitous movie casino game of all is slots; the game is shown in just about every movie in the genre.
