Casino combines the elements of the gangster and the thriller, creating a film that is both exciting and compelling. It also has some of the best acting work from Robert De Niro, Sharon Stone and Joe Pesci.
Many casinos are located in beautiful resort areas, with a variety of dining, entertainment and other amenities. In addition to gambling, these casinos are often perfect venues for events and group business. Having targeted messaging and targeting strategies for event planners and group business is vital to your casino’s success.
The elegant spa town of Baden-Baden became a playground for European royalty and aristocracy 150 years ago, and the casino there is one of the most lavishly outfitted on this list. Featuring red and gold poker rooms and blackjack tables, the casino has a distinctly European feel. The casino’s elaborate surveillance systems have a high-tech “eye in the sky” that can be adjusted to focus on particular patrons to watch for cheating or stealing.
As the film shows, something about gambling (perhaps the large amounts of money involved) seems to encourage people to cheat or steal in order to win. That’s why casinos spend a significant amount of time, effort and money on security. In the film, casino employees are also trained to spot suspicious behavior such as palming cards, marking dice or betting patterns. The resulting footage is then reviewed by higher-ups to prevent casino fraud and other types of illegal activity.
