The film industry has produced many entertaining films, of various genres, set in Sin City. Not only can you live out the hype provided by these films at land based casinos, but the moment you turn off the television, you can turn on your mobile device or laptop and hit the tables at your favourite online casino – Vegas Casino. We provide a Vegas flavoured online casino experience powered by Bitcoin!
If you ever needed a few good reasons to hit the casino, then you’ve come to the right place, because we can think of six. Come celebrate Vegas with us, as we join with the casts of these six classic Vegas movies:
#1 – Rain Man
Here we travel back to 1988, where Tom Cruise and Dustan Hoffman provide stellar performances in the classic film, Rain Man. Directed by Barry Levinson, and written by Batty Morrow and Ronald Bass, the movie tells the story of two estranged brothers, Charlie and Raymond, who are re-united in their adult years, after their rich father passes away. Along their journey Charlie is made aware that Raymond is a savant, with the unique ability of being a human calculator. He decides that he can cash in on the abilities of his brother in Vegas, where he could be used to count cards, while playing Blackjack.
While it was believed to be impossible for a person to card count on a 6 card shoe, the casino bosses soon become very suspicious of the “Rain Man”, but not before Charlie is able to gather some cash to help him save some of his precious cars. Will love triumph over greed in the end? Catch Rain Man to find out.
#2 – Ocean’s Eleven
Ocean’s Eleven is an action packed film directed by Steven Soderbergh, which is a remake of the 1960 film by the same name. This movie boasts a star studded cast that provides great entertainment from beginning to end.
The plot of the story sees professional thief, Danny Ocean, come up with a hair brained scheme to rob three of Vegas’s top casinos, simultaneously! The movie follows these thieves carefully plotting, and masterfully executing, a brazen attack on The Bellagio, The Mirage, and the MGM Grand!
If you ever dreamed of getting one up on a casino giant, this film should not be missed. Join George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, Andy Garcia, Bernie Mac, and Julia Roberts for this 117 minute feature film that netted $450.7 million – a Big Win in anyone’s book!
#3 – Casino
You cannot claim to have seen all the Las Vegas gambling movie classics, if you haven’t watched the ultimate casino thriller, Casino. This Martin Scorsese film casts Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, and Sharon Stone in a 1995 mobster classic that takes a dive into the underworld of some of Vegas’ casinos.
If you love gambling, and are somewhat intrigued by the conspiracies regarding mob involvement and money laundering, then this award winning feature is definitely for you. The plot and premise will have you riveted from beginning till end.
#4 – Rounders
It seems that most of the best casino films were made pre-2000. Rounders is a 1998 drama that delves into the underground world of high stakes poker. Two friends, played by Edward Norton and Matt Damon are in deep with loan sharks, and turn to travelling around the country in search of High Stakes poker games to help pay off their mounting debts.
While one friend is a straight shooter, the other is a deviant scoundrel, who ends up embroiling the pair in big trouble with the Russian underworld. Though the reviews have been rather mixed on the movie, it is definitely worth the 121 minute watch. You may even be inspired to learn how to play poker.
#5 – ‘21’
Here is an exception to the pre-2000 rule for good casino movies. This Robert Luketic film will introduce you to Maths major, Ben Campbell (played by Jim Sturgess), who is accepted into Harvard Medical School, but cannot afford the $300,000 tuition.
One of his professors is secretly running an illegal Blackjack ring who recruits Campbell for his mathematical skills, preying on his desperation for tuition money. Can anything good come of conning casinos? I think not! Watch the film to find out how the heroes survive and the villains are vanquished.
#6 – National Lampoon’s Vegas Vacation
Finally, a comedic take on a Vegas Vacation that leaves one with a light hearted affection for Sin City. It holds a story line that simply reminds the viewers that ‘What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.’
National Lampoons series of films sees the Griswold family, played by Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, Ethan Embry, and Marisol Nichols, embroil themselves in one misadventures after another. Vegas seems to take the cake on the disaster front, but the tale eventually turns around to knit the family back together again, tighter than before.
If you are looking for a Vegas feel good movie, then embark upon this adventure with Clark and the gang for 93 minutes of laughs, compliments of Warner Bros. studios.
