Slots at the Movies

We love playing real money slots and we’ve got everything you need to do that right here. We’ve got reviews on the best USA slots sites around, information on all the biggest and best casino and slots bonuses and tips on what games to play and how to play them. However, much as we love playing online slots, even we like the occasional break. Whether we’re just not in the mood, aren’t feeling lucky or don’t have the spare cash, sometimes a break from the spinning reels is called for.

That said… not too much of a break; which is why movies about slots or casinos generally are perfect to either get us in the mood again or give us the thrill of playing without any risk or effort! Slots are great fun to play, but they perhaps don’t translate quite as well into movies as more glamorous casino games like roulette or blackjack. As such there aren’t too many movies that have slots as the main focus but even so, we’re sure you’ll enjoy the following great flicks.

What Happens in Vegas

What Happens in Vegas is a 2008 movie starring Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher and whilst technically a rom-com, the key point in the movie is when Jack (Kutcher) hits a $3m slots jackpot. The problem is that he used a quarter given to him by Joy (Diaz), who he drunkenly married the night before after a night of Vegas debauchery, but has now agreed to divorce! Bickering, laughs and, perhaps predictably, romance ensue.


Perhaps about as far away from a rom-com as you can get, Casino is arguably THE archetypal casino movie. Slots aren’t a huge part of it, but violence, glamour and gambling are and there are some great performances from Sharon Stone, Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci. This might make you just a little scared of a trip to Vegas…in which case place slots online at home instead!


Again, 21 doesn’t really focus on slots but anyone who likes playing casino games will love this tale of how a team of MIT math geeks took Vegas and global casinos for millions of dollars.
