Hollywood might not like to gamble with their creative decisions as much as they used to, with remakes and sequels top of the agenda these days, but film fans still love a casino movie.

There is something about the environment of the Casino that makes it perfect for movies – it is a micro-climate of its own, perpetually bright lit and garish and populated by its own idiosyncratic subcultures, and the exchange of emotions is just as pronounced as the exchange of chips and cash. If you want to see a full gamut of humanity, check out your local casino, where winners and losers, high-rollers and schemers mingle, and there’s rarely a lull in the entertainment factor. Alternatively, if you would like to play online blackjack, 888.com currently has a £100 bonus. You can play both instantly in your web browser and via the more robust download version of the software. »
