The Best Films Featuring Roulette

When it comes to casino games featuring in big movies, table games are always the most popular - slots barely get a look in. Out of these table games, roulette gets featured a heck of a lot and has been portrayed in pretty much every type of film. From comedies and capers to adventure films and serious dramas, roulette wheels have had their fair share of screen time. In this article, we’re going to unveil the top films that feature roulette.


If all this talk of roulette has got you wanting to play some online roulette, make sure you take a look at for the top online casinos in Canada, where you’ll find a wide range of roulette games as well as great bonuses. Onto the films!


Diamonds are Forever


If James Bond is involved, then the film is sure to have some swanky joints. Bond has caroused a few casinos in his time on screen, but one of the films that feature a casino heavily is 1971’s Diamonds are Forever. 


During the film, Bond tries his hand at a number of different casino games - one of the being roulette. The scene with the roulette is just before the infamous craps scene, and it helped build the tension for the incident that was about to happen at the craps table!




Highly regarded as one of the best films ever made, the 1942 classic Casablanca features roulette in one of its most heralded scenes. 


The scene is centered around a roulette game that is played in the main protagonists' cafe. Rick, played by Humphrey Bogart, rigs the game to ensure that a couple wins when they risk everything on the number 22 to escape the country. A tense scene that is only made tenser by the spinning roulette wheel.


Dirty Rotten Scoundrels


A hit comedy caper starring comedy legend Steve Martin as well as esteemed actor Sir Michael Caine. The two play two con men, each with his own style, trying to con some French casinos out of a lot of money. 


The roulette is featured in one of the most memorable scenes of the film, as Martin and Caine face off against each other at the roulette table. With Steve Martin's comic delivery and Michael Caine's screen presence, the scene is an absolute barnstormer.


Indecent proposal

Whilst roulette is known to be an incredible game full of highs - it can also get you into a spot of bother. The case for that is the 1993 box office hit Indecent Proposal, which stars Demi Moore, Robert Redford and Woody Harrelson.


The film centres around a very newlywed couple who happen to lose their entire life savings on a game of roulette. Thankfully a billionaire steps in and offers the couple some money to get back on their feet - but it comes at the cost of the new husband letting his wife spend the night with the billionaire. The couple actually agrees to the deal, but that’s when things start to get a little complicated, to say the least.


California Split


A pure gambling movie through and through, California Split was released in 1974 and stars George Segal and Elliot Gould. 


Being about gambling, of course, one of the top casino games - roulette - is going to feature. The two main characters are accused of cheating in a poker game, and this accusation causes the pair to bond. Over time, they pool their skills and knowledge together, raking it in, but there are a few hiccups along the way.




One of the top films that shows exactly what life working in a casino is really like is 1998’s Croupier. Starring Clive Owen as the titular croupier, he's an amateur writer who works full-time as a casino croupier.


Throughout the film, we follow him as he witnesses every aspect of the industry, the highs, lows and everything in between. The film itself is equally parts thought-provoking, funny and depressing.


The Deer Hunter


Now you may be wondering why a film that doesn't feature any sort of gambling is on the list. Simply because it has one of the tensest games of roulette ever portrayed - except it's not on the roulette table.


The Deer Hunter has the most dangerous and extreme version of roulette on the planet: Russian roulette. The award-winning film is about Vietnam veterans, The scene with the game of Russian Roulette is one of the most famous and tense scenes in history.
