Actually the fourth James Bond film to feature a casino called Casino Royale. The James Bond movie Never Say Never Again (1983) featured a casino called Casino Royale set in Monte Carlo and filmed at Casino de Monte Carlo, Hôtel de Paris, Casino Square, Monte Carlo, Monaco. Monte Carlo was also the setting for the Casino Royale in the telemovie Climax!: Casino Royale (1954) filmed on the Casino Set at Television City, Los Angeles. The Casino in the James Bond movie GoldenEye (1995) was not called Casino Royale but Monte Carlo again was both its setting and filming location (Monte Carlo Resort and Casino). The Casino Royale was set in France for both the spoof Casino Royale (1967) (filmed in England) and in the original Ian Fleming "Casino Royale" novel, it being set in the fictional French resort town of Royale-les-Eaux. This 2006 film is the first time that a Casino Royale has not been located in either France or Monte Carlo in a James Bond story. It is set in Montenegro. The former Kaiserbad Spa, Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic provided its location exterior. See more »
In order to create the Montenegro location for the poker game, (almost) all signs in front of restaurants and such have been altered to a perfect Montenegrin/Serbian language, with an appropriate mix of Latin and Cyrillic lettering. However, when Bond is sitting in the café with Mathis waiting for the arrest, an original sign, "Bilý Kun" , which is definitely Czech and not Montenegrin/Serbian, is clearly visible for a few seconds.

M really doesn't mind you earning a little money on the side, Dryden. She'd just prefer it if it wasn't selling secrets.
