"Bond has always been a gambler. He loved the dry riffle of the cards and the constant unemphatic drama of the quiet figures round the green tables. he liked the solid, studied comfort of card-rooms and casinos, the well-padded arms of the chairs, the glass of champagne or whiskey at the elbow, the quiet unhurried attention of good servants. He was amused by the impartiality of the roulette ball and of the playing cards - and their eternal bias.
Above all, he liked it that everything was one's own fault. There was only oneself to praise or blame. Luck was a servant and not a master. "
- from Casino Royale, Ian Fleming
What is Bonds favorite Casino game? Most quote Baccarat as being the game (in Goldeneye, the Xenia character refers to it as one of their shared passions), and since Baccarat is of major importance in the novel Casino Royale, it is at least one of the most classic Bond games.
CommanderBond.net reports that the centerpiece card game in the 21st James Bond film Casino Royale will not be Baccarat as in the Ian Fleming novel, but will instead be no-limit Texas Hold'em poker.

What is Bonds favorite Casino game? Most quote Baccarat. 007 plays Baccarat Chemin de Fer in the movies Dr. No, Thunderball, On Her Majesty's Secret Service and GoldenEye (where the Xenia character refers to it as one of their shared passions). And since the game of Baccarat is of major importance in the novel Casino Royale, it is at least one of the most classic Bond casino games.
In the 21st James Bond film Casino Royale Baccarat is replaced by no-limit Texas Hold'em poker.
The rules of Baccarat
Baccarat is a card game that is dealt from a shoe that holds 6 or 8 decks of cards. Two hands are dealt by the house dealer, the "banker" hand and the "player" hand. Before the hands are dealt, bets may be placed on the banker hand, on the player hand, or on a tie.
Winning bets on banker or player are paid 1:1, but a commission of 5% is charged on bank bets making the net odds on such bets 0.95 to 1. Some casinos may charge a lower commission (e.g., at this writing, Binion's Horseshoe in Las Vegas charges 4%.).
Some sources report that tie bets are paid 8:1, while others claim that tie bets are paid 9:1, so this may vary from casino to casino. If there is a tie, bets on the banker or player are returned. Once a bet has been placed, there are no opportunities for further decisions -- both the banker hand and the player hand are dealt according to fixed rules, resulting in final hands of either two or three cards for each.
The value of a hand is determined by adding the values of its individual cards. Tens and face cards are counted as zero, while all other cards are counted by the number of "pips" on the card face. Only the last digit of the total is used, so all baccarat hands have values in the range 0 to 9 inclusive. The hand with the higher value wins; if the hands have the same value, the result is a tie.
Rules for the player hand: If the player's first two cards total 6 or more, then the player must stand without drawing a card. If the player's first two cards total 5 or less, the player must draw one additional card.
Rules for the banker hand: If the banker's first two cards total 7 or
more, then the banker must stand without drawing a card. If the banker's
first two cards total 0, 1, or 2, then the banker must draw one card. If
the banker's first two cards total 3, 4, 5, or 6, then whether the banker
draws is determined by the whether the player drew, and if so the value of
the player's draw card, as shown by the table below.
Although Bonds favorite Casino game might be Baccarat Chemin de Fer, in the latest movie Casino Royale 007 shows great skills in the most popular form of poker, Texas Hold 'em.
The "no-limit" betting form is used in the high stakes game in the casino of Montenegro, where Bond beats Le Chiffre after a thrilling game, with a straight flush.
Casino Barrière de Deauville, France
In the novel Casino Royale, Bond plays Baccarat against villain Le Chiffre in the fictitious Casino of Royale-les-Eaux. Fleming based this casino on the real casino in Deauville.
