Names of fantasy casinos that have appeared in movies/TV shows

What are some names of fantasy casinos that have appeared in movies/TV shows? I'd like to compile as extensive a list as possible. Include reference links if you have them.

Running list of contributions:

Rick's Cafe Americain - Casablanca
Montecito Casino - Las Vegas (TV Series)
The Lotus Casino - Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief
Colorado Casino (TILT, TV mini-series)
The Whyte House - Movie: Diamonds Are Forever
Beaumont-sur-Mer Casino - Movie: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
The Eclipse - CSI (TV series)
Shangri-La Casino - Movie: The Cooler

Re: Names of fantasy casinos that have appeared in movies/TV shows

Can you start with a list that has all movies/shows that have chips in it, then determine what Fantasy Casino they had? Here's the link to the draft in CT's wiki:
