James Bond, or 007, not only beats the odds in the field, but also defies them at the casinos where he plays. He has a long series of achievement, but here are the 3 best James Bond casino moments ever.

DR NO (1962)

This is the film that took Bond from Ian Fleming‘s novel to big screens in 1962. The film opens with a scene set in a casino in London where Sean Connery plays the role of the iconic secret agent. As James Bond plays against Chemin-De-Fer at the tables, one of the women in watching the men play, Sylvia Trench, gave Bond the opportunity to say the famous line, “Bond. James Bond”.

Goldeneye (1995)

The second of James Bond best moments comes when he was playing Baccarat in 1995 film, Goldeneye. In this scene, Bond plays Baccarat against a Russian agent Xenia Onatopp in one of the best casinos in Monaco. Here, we get one of Bond’s bonds most iconic one-liners.

Casino Royale (2006)

This was the reboot of the Bond series in 2006 and where Daniel Craig made his first appearance as James Bond at the Casino Royale. Bond puts everything on the line to emerge as a winner. Here Bond plays Texas Hold’em against Le Chieffre, the film’s villain portrayed by Mads Mikkelsen. Finally, he won the final “all-in” hand with a super flush.

Where there is James Bond, there is a casino. Bond films tend to take place in casinos because they are generally places full of hope, tension, thrill, risk, and action, and this mix of emotions is probably the reason casinos will be popular settings for Bond films for years to come.
