There is plenty of entertainment to be had at a modern online casino but sometimes you just want to curl up in front of the television with a really good series that you can immerse yourself in. Maybe it’s the characters involved or the high stakes action, but gambling has long been a favoured subject matter for screenplay writers. After all, there are probably half a dozen movies you could name off the top of your head that feature poker, blackjack or roulette in some way. However, small-screen series about gambling seem to be spread a little more thinly on the ground.
Thank goodness for digital streaming services because a lot of the old gambling shows that were made before the times when people would play casino online games are now available to watch again. You might not have heard of all of the shows on our list, but they are all extremely watchable and feature gambling as a primary theme or plot point. So, whether you play casino games in bricks and mortar establishments and want to pick up a few tips, or simply want to relax after a few games at your favourite online casino, read on to find out more about some of the best gambling TV shows ever made.
