Films! We love them. The Las Vegas casino is always an excellent backdrop for movies, whether your characters are gambling, involved in some kind of poker scam or just indulging in a good old-fashioned chase through the casino is easy to see why directors love this location. Here are some of the best movies that are set in and around the casinos in the list put together by


There are four films in the Ocean’s series, and it began way back in 2001 with the release of Ocean’s Eleven. In the movie we see eleven pals attempting to rob three casinos, all at the same time. The next film appeared three years after, and with the addition of an extra cast member, Julia Roberts, it became Ocean’s Twelve, and you can see where they are going with this theme. Following on from their previous adventures the team now plans the biggest heist ever on some of the best casinos in Europe. Casinos movies.

We jump forward 2007 and seven and find Ocean’s Thirteen, where clearly the directors do not feel that we are tired of the storyline yet and once more the team are planning a heist. This time it is to be a revenge attack. The final instalment in the series breaks tradition and is bizarrely called Ocean’s Eight. It does feature some pretty big names in the form of Anne Hathaway, Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett and Rhianna and has been named as the best in the series.


The best of the best in this film we see a group of six students who attend MIT being trained by experts in card counting with the sole mission of taking over Las Vegas. It is every gambler’s dream to be able to use tricks and tips to win at every table but rarely can it actually become reality. This movie gives wannabe millionaires the chance to live out their dreams and watch the plucky players as they win money and con other players. 21 is a 2008 offering and received high acclaim from the critics so if you haven’t seen it yet you might want to add it to your playlist.

The Sting

It is not just modern cinema that has seen fit to locate to their films in casinos as 1978 classic The Sting proves. At the time it went to air casinos were not actually that popular; however, the film itself hit the top of the charts and takes its place in history is a classic. When the film opens there is murder and drama unfolds as they plot to avenge his death. Hapless gangsters work with a conman who was behind the murder and chaos ensues. With elaborate schemes, they attempt to swindle money from the casino mobster. This is a true film and does not feature any special effects so watching it is a real step back in time. It can be downloaded and streamed; however the graphics and sound quality are not of the standards we have come to expect today. Casinos movies.
