In the first, "Casino Royale" in the James Bond film series the game that was featured and played was Roulette. In the more recent remake, Roulette was replaced with Texas Hold 'Em due to the globally mass popularity of the game.

There are 80,658,175,170,943,878,571,660,636,856,403,766,975,289,505,440,883,277,824,000,000,000,000 ways a single deck of 52 cards can be shuffled. wow

Quotes I found on this...
"Start a timer that will count down the number of seconds from 52! to 0. We're going to see how much fun we can have before the timer counts down all the way.

Start by picking your favorite spot on the equator. You're going to walk around the world along the equator, but take a very leisurely pace of one step every billion years.

After you complete your round the world trip, remove one drop of water from the Pacific Ocean. Now do the same thing again: walk around the world at one billion years per step, removing one drop of water from the Pacific Ocean each time you circle the globe. Continue until the ocean is empty.

When it is, take one sheet of paper and place it flat on the ground. Now, fill the ocean back up and start the entire process all over again, adding a sheet of paper to the stack each time you’ve emptied the ocean.

Do this until the stack of paper reaches from the Earth to the Sun.

Take a glance at the timer, you will see that the three left-most digits haven’t even changed.

So, take the stack of papers down and do it all over again. One thousand times more.

You’re just about a third of the way done."
if there was a trillion galaxies with a trillion planets in each with a trillion people on each planet each shuffling a thousand times a second since the beginning of the known universe they would only now start having the same order of cards!
