Casino is a movie that grabs you and doesn’t let go. Unlike Goodfellas, which is just about a mobster’s escapades in the casino world, Casino tells a story of two people with parallel paths. Ace and Nicky, played by Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci respectively, are both interesting characters with their own arcs in the film.
The overall theme of the film is gambling is fun and exciting, as long as you don’t lose too much money. Casinos are designed to be euphoric environments that make players feel like they’re part of something bigger. The dazzling lights, soothing music and the smell of scented oils create a manufactured blissful experience that keeps players coming back for more.
But a lot of the excitement of casino games is based on luck, and it can be very easy to get caught up in the moment and spend more than you can afford to lose. Moreover, gambling can have negative effects on the player’s mental health. Compulsive gambling can lead to depression and a sense of worthlessness.
There are many reasons why casinos are built the way they are. The most important is to keep players in the casino longer, which means that they’re taking more risks and spending more money. But the fact is that, while casinos do bring in profits, they also take away from other forms of entertainment and even cost local businesses more than they bring in.
