Everyone loves a great movie and one of the most successful themes of all time is the casino theme and as online casinos have increased in popularity so producers have embraced the casino genre of themes even more which is not really so surprising as casino based movies offer intrigue and thrills for both gamblers and non-gamblers alike.
For online casino operators like Fruity King having a diverse choice of games that encompass some of Hollywood’s finest movies themes ensures that fans will want to try those games as well as the wide range of slots, blackjack, craps, baccarat, roulette, poker and other games which can be found via this link if you click here.
Many casino based movie themes (in fact all movie based themed games) have unique video and sound clips to enhance player interest and perhaps one of the most famous Casino films of all time is Martin Scorsese’s Iconic movie ‘Casino’ which has some memorable quotes from the real, gritty life behind all that glitz and glamor to the whole spectacle of the city itself
The movie ‘Casino’ follows the rise and fall of Sam ‘Ace’ Rothstein as he moves to Las Vegas on request of the Italian mafia to run the Tangiers casino and through a dialogue and narration by Ace and his partner in crime we hear as their audience some true ‘gems’ of wisdom on gambling (and gangsters) in las Vegas and love, from those people who knew them best.
When Ace Rothstein arrives in Las Vegas it feels to him as if he has hit the big time in terms of his credibility if not financially – his self esteem is at an all time high making him feel as if he is ‘somebody’ to be respected and reckoned with, someone who has a purpose in life.
‘For guys like me, Las Vegas washes away your sins. It’s like a morality car wash.’
Casino often creates a cinematic equivalent and Ace’s move up in the world twins being the director of a casino with becoming the director of a major motion picture in Hollywood – it’s everything to him.
Of course all good things have to come to an end and when their run on las Vegas finally comes to an end and Ace is looking back as the passing of the Golden era into the time when the huge corporations which rebuilt Las Vegas into the family-friendly tourist attraction we know today.
‘Today, it looks like Disneyland, and, while the kids play cardboard pirates, mommy and daddy drop the house payments and Junior’s college money on the poker slots.’
‘In the old days, dealers knew your name, what you drank, what you played, today, it’s like checking into an airport and, if you order room service, you’re lucky if you get it by Thursday.’
For all of Ace’s lack of scruples he did take pride in what he achieved and accomplished and perhaps this last quote above sums it all up.
