Casino is the best movie Scorsese has made since Goodfellas and it features the same great acting from Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci. The music in this is also really good; Fleetwood Mac’s “Go Your Own Way” and the Animals’ classic song ‘The House of the Rising Sun’ are both very well chosen and fit in perfectly with what is happening on screen.
Casinos are designed to be exciting and fun places where people can let their hair down and have some fun with other people. They often feature flashy decor, upbeat music and a variety of games that players can choose from. These can be anything from blackjack and poker to roulette which requires a certain level of skill but also a lot of luck.
In order to attract and keep customers casinos are constantly trying to come up with ways to titillate their senses. Bright lights, clinking coins and even the smell of the place can all have an effect on us and make us feel euphoric, in turn making us want to gamble and spend more money. Studies have shown that certain scents can increase the time people spend at slot machines and so casinos waft these scented oils throughout their ventilation systems in order to keep us all coming back for more.
There is one thing that all casino patrons need to remember though, and that is that the house always wins. Every game has a built in advantage that is designed to ensure that the casino will make a profit. That is why they regularly offer big bettors extravagant inducements such as free spectacular entertainment, lavish transportation and luxurious living quarters.
