Ocean's 11: it's movie time at goldenpalace.be!
We all love a trip to the movies to see a blockbuster – the team of goldenpalace.be is no exception. In our first edition of our Movie inspiration theme we will be talking about Ocean's 11.
Let’s review what the movie is about and what it has to do with casinos, without spoiling the whole thing for those of us who haven’t seen the movie yet:
The film centres around Danny Ocean, played here by the academy-award winning actor George Clooney. Fresh out of prison, Ocean rounds up a gang of eleven criminal experts intending to simultaneously rob three Las Vegas casinos out of $150M. Among the miscreants Danny recruits are card magician Rusty Ryan, played by screen heartthrob Brad Pitt, and pickpocket Linus Caldwell portrayed by Matt Damon.
Joining the stellar cast are notable film stars Julia Roberts, Casey Affleck, Elliott Gould and Andy Garcia. The 2001 version of the film was actually a remake of a 1960 film which starred legend Frank Sinatra as Danny Ocean, supremely supported by other members of the 'Rat Pack', Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr and Peter Lawford.
The 2001 version rumbles along nicely as all members of the dozen-strong team perform their roles whilst looking cool and seemingly having an enjoyable time. There are twists and turns along the way as the tension rises - will they be successful and get away with the $150M fortune? Well, you'll just have to watch the movie for yourself to find out.
Of course goldenpalace.be does not condone this kind of behaviour - however, we're a fun-loving lot and this movie is one we really enjoyed, hence our Ocean's 11 based theme. That’s not to say our own players don’t regularly legitimately rob some of our money! Why not try it yourself on some the thrilling casino games online?
