Casinos offer many perks to keep their guests happy, from top-tier hotels and spas to restaurants and entertainment. The gambling experience alone is one of the most popular attractions, with people flocking to the tables and machines to try their luck. The sound of coins clinking and the music playing helps to create a euphoric atmosphere that’s hard to beat. While some may tut when things don’t go their way, others just can’t help but be drawn back to the games and the buzz of the place.
Something about casinos attracts people who are looking to cheat, scam, and take advantage of those around them. This can be because of the large amount of money involved, or simply that there’s a certain glamour associated with winning at games of chance. It’s also the reason why casinos spend a lot of time and effort on security.
Whether they’re trying to win big or just have a fun night out, casino customers are often treated like royalty. In addition to the high stakes, players can earn comps that come in the form of free food, hotel rooms, shows and even limo service. These rewards encourage repeat visits and can increase the average spending per guest by up to 30%, according to Anderson Digital.
Casino, starring Robert De Niro as Sam “Ace” Rothstein and Sharon Stone as blonde hustler Ginger McKenna, is a riveting movie from start to finish. From the opening scene’s car bomb to a torture-by-vice sequence that had to be trimmed to avoid an NC-17 rating, Scorsese conveys an ambivalent, love/hate relationship with Las Vegas and its ruthless past.
