Casino TV Shows You Should Not Miss

Gambling is one of the most entertaining ways of making money and as any gamer will tell you, playing casino games can be a lot of fun. The risk of the wager, the possibility of becoming rich overnight and the thrill that players feel when a dice is rolled or a poker hand is being revealed, is intensified when there is a lot of money at stake. And, as a result, it is a natural occurrence that people should want to watch these games on television.

Many television and drama producers have realized the viewer potential for broadcasting poker games and casino related shows and have come up with several casino TV shows that are now extremely popular. Some of the top casino TV shows include American Casino and The Casino. Another great success that is no longer being aired was a show called Las Vegas that aired from the year 2003 to 2008.

Popular poker and blackjack tournaments like the World Series of Poker, the World Poker Tour and the Ultimate Blackjack Tour are also covered on television for the duration of each event. These are high energy shows and are followed by viewers who often sit on the edge of their seats as they watch the action take place and wait to see who will win.

The Casino is a much watched TV series that begin in 2004 and was created by none other than Mark Burnett, who also has hits like “Survivor” and Trump’s “The Apprentice” to his name. This show is a reality TV show that aims to give viewers a look at the workings of an actual Las Vegas casino from behind the scenes. ‘The Casino’ showcases the Golden Nugget Casino which is based in downtown Vegas and follows the lives of Tom Breitling and Tim Poster, who are living their dream of running a casino. ‘The Casino’ which airs on Fox Network has also featured Andre Agassi in a few of its episodes.

American Casino is yet another very interesting casino show that airs every Wednesday at 8 pm on the Discovery Travel Channel. This show is also a reality TV series and follows the lives of the managers and staff at the Green Valley Ranch Casino, which is based in Nevada. Viewers in Europe will be able to watch it on the Discovery Channel.

Other popular casino programs include the many gaming related channels featured on the Sky network. Viewers who like roulette for instance, will be able to watch and play it on the Live Roulette SKY 866 line throughout the day.

    Are there any beginner TV shows? Maybe online shows if not on normal TV? I can get a bit lost watching American Casino.
