With a story that centers around greed and corruption, Casino is the perfect movie for this week’s topic of “bad guys.” There are no good guys in this film—everyone is mired in violence, treachery and avarice. Despite this, the film remains compelling and human. The ending also allows us to feel sympathy for the characters—especially Sharon Stone’s Ginger, who has suffered terribly because of her addiction to gambling.
Casinos use a variety of psychological methods to encourage gamblers to spend money. They employ bright lights, upbeat music and ringing bells to create a sense of excitement. They also offer free drinks, as they know that alcohol decreases inhibitions and increases the likelihood of making poor decisions when it comes to spending money.
In addition, casinos are often laid out in a maze-like pattern with no straight rows of tables or machines. This makes it easy to get lost and keep wandering past more opportunities to play. Casinos also typically have no clocks and few windows, to make it difficult to determine what time of day or night it is.
While casinos can be fun, they are not a good source of happiness. They can be a great way to have a night out, but they should only be visited with money that you can afford to lose. If you’re not careful, you can easily lose $200 at the casino and feel disappointed that you didn’t win big. Instead, consider attending a live concert or buying a new outfit with the money that you would have spent at the casino.
