The $7 billion James Bond film franchise is responsible for some of the most iconic casino scenes in cinema history. And no one can call themselves a true 007 fan without having visited the real casino where they were shot. That’s why, to celebrate filming for the 25th Bond movie, the guys from bgo online casino have decided to explore some of the best Bond casinos you can visit this summer.
Up there on the list is the Casino de Monte-Carlo in Monaco. You’ll instantly recognise its grand Belle Époque architecture from not just one, but two classic Bond flicks: Never Say Never Again and GoldenEye. Inside is equally glamorous. Expect hand-crafted gaming tables and Bohemian crystal glass chandeliers, which give the whole place a magical golden glow.
Got your sights set on Las Vegas? Book a trip to the Westgate Resort & Casino. Back in 1971, it was used as the location for the fictional ‘Whyte House’ casino owned by billionaire Willard Whyte in the Bond film Diamonds are Forever. Its 54,295-square-foot casino floor certainly has a license to thrill, with almost 600 slot machines, 38 gaming tables and one of the largest sportsbooks in the world.
