Published on May 26th, 2023 8:00 pm EST

The top movies about casinos of all time.  What is your favourite?When you think of famous movies involving casinos, you probably think about the likes of Brad Pitt, Robert De Niro and Daniel Craig.

This is certainly not a definitive list by any means, but here are five famous movies that used casinos as key plot points:

1. Casino Royale.

This James Bond movie, which features Daniel Craig as James Bond, features a famous scene where Bond wins a high-stakes poker showdown against a couple of other players.

Seemingly beaten in the hand, Bond turns over a straight flush to win the massive pot.

2. Casino.

The Martin Scorsese classic that features the likes of Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Sharon Stone, to name a few.

The movie highlights the role of the mob in Las Vegas, and is easily one of the best Las Vegas/casino movies of all time.

3. Ocean's Eleven.

So good that it had to be remade. The original Ocean's Eleven had a different ending than the one that features the likes of Brad Pitt and George Clooney.

This movie is about a group of criminals that conspire to pull off a heist of Las Vegas casinos - the crime seemingly impossible to pull off.

4. The Hangover.

A comedy that catapulted multiple people to superstardom. The movie centers around a bachelor party in Las Vegas that goes hilariously awry.

5. Rain Man.

While the casino isn't the major focus of this movie, Rain Man does feature a famous scene where Dustin Hoffman's character uses his enormous mental powers to pull off a major win at the blackjack table.


There are other movies that could certainly make this list, though these are five of the top casino movies of all time.
