With big stakes and the chance that everything might go wrong, there is nothing to put you on the edge of your seat quite like a casino scene and here are some of the top moments from famous films where big wagers were placed on success.

Casino Royale (2006)

Daniel Craig’s first outing as 007 cemented everyone’s favourite gentleman spy as the ultimate casino expert. The final poker hand is one of the most tense parts of the film.

How to Win at the Roulette Table

Roulette is a fun game where a ball is spun around in a wheel and it will land on one number. Players have to place bets on which number they think the ball will stop on. They can choose to bet on a single number, a selection of numbers, an odd or even number or a red or black number (numbers are on a coloured background). The chances of winning will change depending on whether you choose just a single number, a small selection of numbers or a large selection of numbers. The prizes vary too, with the riskiest bets, which are on single numbers, paying out more than the ones with less risk where you choose a big selection of numbers.

They feel that if it is has not landed on a number for a while then there is a bigger chance that it will then land on it.

Therefore you cannot make predictions about what might come up, in order to win. Read More
