Du Pont previously appeared in Casino Royale, in which Bond remembered "[being] glad to have [had] such a solid bulwark on his left... when he had broken Le Chiffre" As in the film, Bond stops the cheating, but his demands to Goldfinger are more detailed. Bond demands Goldfinger shell out $50,000 as punishment for his cheating and to directly apologize to Mr. Du Pont, $35,000 was the approximate amount Goldfinger had flimflammed from Mr. Du Pont, with $10,000 being Bond's cut. The remaining $5,000 was to also go to Mr. Du Pont for wasting his time. Bond also demanded Goldfinger arrange a private suite for Jill Masterton and himself on the Silver Meteor train service from Miami to New York City. Although M is glad Bond foiled Goldfinger in that regard, he expresses disappointment that Bond spent his $10,000 on Jill Masterton, when agents were required to hand over such profits to the Secret Service as Bond was on duty, or at the very least, M suggested, to donate it to the White Cross.
