Ah, The Casino... a chance to triple your money, and have fun while doing it. Or go home completely broke, and have fun while doing it.

If the characters visit Vegas, there will definitely be at least ONE of these, and someone will probably go home broke, either due to strange House Rules or legitimate bad luck.

In video games, this is sometimes a Minigame Zone, but not always. Only if you can play it's a Minigame Zone. It could be both, if you can play the games there, but have to bring down The Mafia too.

Tropes used in The Casino include:

Anime and Manga

  • In the episode of Cowboy Bebop where Spike meets Faye, a casino chip with a microchip in it is to be exchanged in one of these. For added fun, it takes place in a casino/space station shaped like a roulette wheel.
  • In Yami no Matsuei, Tsuzuki actually had to pretend to be a dealer on a cruise ship's casino in order to investigate murders.
  • Rosette and Chrono first meet Azmaria in a casino owned by her adoptive father in Las Vegas (Atlantic City in the anime).


Live-Action TV

  • In Heroes, there's Linderman's casino, and it's a plot point for much of the first series.
  • These pop up pretty frequently in CSI.
  • As well as the series Las Vegas.
  • The episode "Double Down" in Numb3rs revolves around card counting in a casino. Larry is revealed to be a former card counter, and he, Charlie, and Amita gamble at a casino.
  • The Hustle take down a Vegas for $5 million in "Big Daddy Calling" after the owner has Albert roughed up.


  • Viva Las Vegas, of course.

Video Games

  • Pokémon Red's Game Corner, while a Minigame Zone, is also the front for Team Rocket's base of operations.
  • Baccarat in Saga Frontier. At least three characters go there during their quests, but none of the games can be played
  • In Paper Mario the Thousand Year Door, there's the Pianta Parlor, owned by the mob. E Rating, indeed.
  • Glittertown/Neon City in Wario Land Shake It is this kind of area, with multiple casino type areas in two levels set in an extremely obvious fictional pastiche of Las Vegas.
  • The third mission in Bonanza Bros. takes place in a casino. Depending on whether or not you're playing a Bowdlerized version, either the Casino Executives are corrupt and you're stealing evidence, you're testing an elaborate security system, or it's just a straight-up heist.
  • In Action Doom 2 Urban Brawl, as you're riding an elevator upwards through the corporation building and punching out everyone you meet along the way, one of the floors you come upon is a casino, complete with snazzy casino music and mini-games to play.
  • Sonic Adventure's third stage is casino themed, but the focus is on pinball, with Sonic as the ball. The main wagering you do is hoping to collect 100 rings in a game to avoid being dumped into the sewer, and one pinball game has a slot bonus, where one set of symbols (Dr. Eggman's face) will steal all of your rings.
