It’s happened to all of us – you stride into the Luxor or Mohegan Sun with a wallet full of cash, looking forward to an enjoyable evening of sensible gambling and maybe two rounds of cocktails. Hours later, you don’t even know what time it is and you have no idea how much your bankroll is down. But it’s not entirely your fault. There are a number of tricks casinos use to keep you playing.

Casino is a movie about crime, greed and corruption, and there are no good guys in this story. But it is also a thriller that manages to be exciting and entertaining throughout. There are some great sequences and memorable moments, and the performances from Robert De Niro and Sharon Stone are excellent. It’s definitely one of my favourite movies.

When you step into a casino, it’s like stepping into another world. The glitz and glamour of the decor, the music blaring and coins clinking in the slot machines combine to create an atmosphere that is hard to ignore. The people who play in a casino are a diverse bunch, from the regulars who strut with confidence to those who are just trying to win back what they lost last round. But despite the fact that the house always wins, most of these players share one thing in common: they’re having fun!

Casino is a fascinating movie that illustrates the psychology of gambling and how it affects the people who gamble. It’s definitely worth watching if you have any interest in the subject.
