Casino is an entertaining and informative look at the world of gambling and its role in society. It is a film that should be watched by anyone interested in gaming and the business behind it, especially since casinos are constantly changing and adapting to fit the needs of their guests.
Casino has a few incredibly memorable scenes, including the torture of De Niro’s character with a vice, his attempt to smuggle drugs in a briefcase, and the murder of Sharon Stone’s character by a mobster. Despite these incredibly violent moments, the movie is still an engrossing watch and one of Scorsese’s best. Casino portrays both the opulence of Las Vegas and the seedy underbelly of organized crime in a way that no other movie has done before it, while still appealing to people who love partying and taking weekend bus trips to the nearest casino with their friends.
In 2005, Harrah’s Entertainment surveyed over 100,000 adults and found that the typical casino gambler was a forty-six year old female from a household with above average income. These women had more discretionary spending money and vacation time than younger adults, making them the largest group of casino gamblers.
Casinos often have more to offer than just their gaming floor, such as luxurious hotels, cutting-edge technology, events and meeting spaces, spa and health clubs, and delicious restaurants.
