Casino Review

Whether you like to try your luck at table games or slot machines, there’s a lot to enjoy about casinos. The excitement of the game, the possibility of big wins, and the thrill of socializing with friends and strangers all add up to make casino gambling an enjoyable experience. Plus, most casinos are designed with bright and often gaudy colors to create a cheerful and cheery atmosphere. In addition, many of the games are themed to various themes such as Ancient Rome or the movies which can give a unique spin to your gaming experience.

Unlike the glamorous but ultimately shallow portrayals of Las Vegas in other movies, Casino goes beyond the opulent neon signs and flashy dresses to reveal a city steeped in organized crime, corruption, and criminal behavior. It lays bare an intricate web of mob influence, with tendrils reaching into the government, Teamsters unions, and even the Midwest mafia. And it shows how the business of casinos is not just about raking in the cash, but is also about selling a fantasy.

After Goodfellas tapped into the public’s hunger for violent and profane mob dramas, Casino took advantage of that momentum to become a box-office smash. And although it does show some of the more brutal aspects of Vegas life, Scorsese never resorts to gratuitous violence just for style or shock value. And at three hours long, the movie never lags or runs out of steam.
