Top 7 Movie Scenes Shot in Real Casinos

The vast majority of movie casino scenes you assume were shot in real casinos were actually sets on soundstages. That’s because never inconveniencing guests is usually a higher priority for casino owners than publicity from a movie that might or might not do well.

Robert DeNiro Netflix

Robert DeNiro starred in the 1995 Martin Scorsese classic, Casino. And so did the Riviera in Las Vegas, where most of the movie 메이저사이트 was shot and real guests were filmed gambling in the background. (Image: netflix.com)

We salute the casinos who took a gamble. From the defunct Desert Inn and Riviera, to the still-strong Bellagio, Circus Circus, and Fremont, thank you for making the following (lucky) seven casino scenes better by making exceptions to that rule.

7. “A Winner Every Time”

Movie: Diamonds Are Forever

Year: 1971

Casino: Circus Circus

Circus Circus provided an exhilarating backdrop of intrigue and action —including a slot-pulling elephant! – to Sean Connery’s sixth and final turn as superspy James Bond.

While the movie isn’t great, this scene — in which the CIA rigs a balloon water race to allow Jill St. John to win a bear stuffed with smuggled diamonds – is a virtual time machine back to childhood for anyone who spent at least a day on the midway in the ’60s or ’70s.

6. “Always Double Down in Blackjack”

Movie: Swingers

Year: 1996

Casino: Fremont

Trent (Vince Vaughan) convinces his buddy, Mike (Jon Favreau), that a trip to “Vegas, baby!” is the only possible cure for his recently broken heart. This scene, filmed at the blackjack table at the Fremont, epitomizes the pair’s dysfunctional relationship. Mike, an inexperienced player, unwisely follows Trent’s persistent advice to “always double down on 11.” Of course, you shouldn’t, which is why strangers at blackjack tables worldwide still break the ice by repeating this quote.

5. “Fountain Scene”

Movie: Ocean’s 11

Year: 2001

Casino: Bellagio

This surprisingly good remake of a 1960 Rat Pack casino heist flick had unrestricted access to film inside the Bellagio. (Producer Jerry Weintraub was close friends with the casino’s then-owner, Kirk Kerkorian.) But its most iconic scene was set on the public sidewalk outside.

Near the end of the movie, the thieves (minus the apprehended George Clooney) gather to watch the fountain show set to Claude Debussy’s “Clare de Lune.” Then, one by one, led by Brad Pitt, they go their separate ways.

4. “Blackjack Scene”

Movie: Rain Man

Year: 1988

Casino: Caesars Palace

Tom Cruise (playing a money-obsessed narcissist) discovers that the brother he never knew he had (Dustin Hoffman) is an autistic savant with a uniquely profitable talent. Struggling to pay off $80K in unexpected debt, Cruise escorts Hoffman to where counting cards can pay off big time. Their visit to the casino 토토사이트추천 at Caesars Palace — which begins with an epic down-escalator entrance – ends their money troubles.

3. “Blackjack Scene”

Movie: The Hangover

Year: 2009

Casino: Caesars Palace

This is a wonderfully hysterical homage to the Rain Man scene mentioned above. It begins with a ride down the same escalator, with Zach Galifianakis dressed the same way as Hoffman. And, after a similar montage of card-counting and eye-in-the-sky suspicion, it ends with Galifianakis making good on the same unexpected $80K debt.

2. “Bold Advertising Scheme”

Movie: Lost in America

Year: 1985

Casino: Desert Inn

In this hysterical scene, Albert Brooks’ typically defeated main character desperately tries talking Gary Marshall’s casino manager into giving him and his wife their money back. That’s after she blows most of their nest egg on roulette at the Desert Inn. Brooks’ argument includes a pitch for a TV campaign advertising the casino’s newfound atypical kindness. (“The Desert Inn has heart!” he sings. “The Desert Inn has heart!”)

1. “Blackjack Scene”

Movie: Casino

Year: 1995

Casino: Rivieria

Joe Pesci (playing a thinly fictionalized version of vicious Vegas mafia boss Anthony “Tony the Ant” Spilotro) physically and verbally abuses a series of blackjack dealers who don’t deal him the cards he wants. (The one shown above is played by real-life blackjack dealer Nick Mazzola, the same man who dealt blackjack to Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise in Rain Man!) Nearly all of Casino was filmed by director Martin Scorsese at the Riviera. Its casino floor, penthouse, restaurants, kitchen, ballroom and showroom all feature prominently, preserving this relic for the ages.

And actual Riviera guests were 토토사이트 filmed gambling at the tables in the background. Scorsese instructed them not to be quiet during filming because he wanted the noise they made to contribute to the film’s authenticity.

Poker World Sees Cheaters Suspended, PokerStars Tournament Halted By DDoS

Two regular faces in the poker world were notably absent from a popular, long-running tournament, and PokerStars is again experiencing technical difficulties during events.

Ali Imsirovic

A few days ago, as the Poker Masters was getting started, Daniel Negreanu noticed that Ali Imsirovic and Jake Schindler were absent. It was a little surprising, given that both have been regular fixtures at big-ticket tournaments.

Negreanu forecast on Twitter that the two players wouldn’t arrive, and he was right. Poker Masters organizer PokerGO later confirmed that it had suspended the two grinders over cheating allegations.

In a press release, the PokerGo Tour (PGT) announced “the indefinite suspensions of Ali Imsirovic and Jake Schindler, effective immediately. The suspensions will extend through at least the 2022 PGT season, at which point a review will take place.”

For now, the suspensions will run through the end of the year. This is the first major poker circuit to take action against the two embattled pros.

Neither has publicly addressed the allegations, adding to the suspicion that they’re guilty. After Schindler won his WSOP bracelet last summer, he refused to discuss the subject when the media approached him for comments.

No Room for Cheaters

Imsirovic and Schindler have caused an uproar in the poker community. Multiple players have accused the pair of colluding in live poker tournaments and using real-time assistance (RTA) tools in online tourneys to game the system.

Both players are among the best tournament grinders in the world. Before the cheating accusations, Negreanu had dubbed Schindler one of today’s best players. The two have combined earnings of about $53 million in live tournaments, according to the Hendon Mob.

Last year, Imsirovic, one of the favorites to top this year’s PGT leaderboard, won 14 major tournaments. He also earned the GPI and PokerGO Tour Player of the Year awards.

The poker ecosystem is taking a zero-tolerance 토토사이트추천 approach to cheating, driven by the new GGPoker-led Poker Integrity Council. That group hopes to bring transparency and honor to poker and wants to see the entire poker community back an industrywide blacklist for violators that would cover live and online events.

PokerStars Suffers Attack

Sunday was the big day of PokerStars’ World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP). Among the 25 tournaments on the calendar were six Main Events, along with several other tournaments.

Anticipation was high, as players dreamed of the cash they could win. But at around 8:30 p.m., Flutter-owned PokerStars announced on Twitter that things weren’t working out. It had been forced to pause all tournaments on the .com client because of technical issues.

After an hour with the tournaments paused, PokerStars announced that it was still working to resolve the technical problem. Then, almost two hours later, the platform announced the cancellation of all tournaments. It added that the prize pools would be distributed according to the site’s cancellation policy.

PokerStars had become a target of a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack. Someone, or some group, deliberately sabotaged the day’s events, leaving the poker platform with egg on its face and thousands of players more than a little frustrated.

DDoS attacks are relatively common occurrences – in the second quarter, there were 78,558 attacks globally, according to Kaspersky. There are plenty of tools and sites available that make launching one simple.

It’s unclear as to what tools Flutter has in place to counter a DDoS attack. While PokerStars indicated that there was no breach and it didn’t lose customer data, the forced shutdown was still embarrassing.

The WCOOP Main Events that 토토사이트 should have occurred on Sunday are back on the calendar. Players can try their hand again on Nov. 6, provided PokerStars doesn’t run into any more issues.

Legal Sports Betting Being Pushed By Albanian Sports Organizations

Three and a half years ago, Albanian lawmakers decided that online gambling and sports betting were not welcome in the country. Sports industry insiders are now hoping they’ll have a change of heart and bring back legal sports betting.

Albania PM Edi Rama

Exit News reports that sports industry stakeholders are petitioning the Albanian government for change. They hope to convince the Balkan country to reverse its ban in order to attract new revenue.

The country’s legal world came to a halt in January 2019. All forms of online gaming stopped, as did land-based betting. Although Albania’s government maintains strict control over its internet access, illegal platforms have still been operational.

Time To Right a Wrong

The stakeholders explained in their letter that, with the ban, the government is missing out on revenue that it desperately needs. They feel the decision to implement the prohibition moved the country in the wrong direction, and that it’s time to make things right.

If Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama were to have a change of heart, the stakeholders would help draft new regulations. Among the stipulations would be guaranteed revenue for the advancement of athletes and sports. Currently, most Olympic-bound athletes have to train outside of Albania and receive no financial support.

Rama, a former basketball player, helped push the gambling ban into place. He garnered significant support in the Socialist Party, of which he’s a member, to ensure the legislation survived.

The Albanian leader was a die-hard gambling opponent, often referring to it as “pure evil.” However, in 2020, he relaxed his position 메이저토토사이트 and moved to create a dedicated casino zone in the city of Tirana.

The regulation of sports betting by law is a practice followed by many Western countries. In these countries, the income from sports betting is used for the development of sports, sports infrastructure, as well as to support the youth,” argue sports groups lobbying for sports betting in Albania.

The renewed push for sports betting is receiving support from several key groups. Among these are many of the country’s major sports organizations, as well as its Olympic Committee.

They stress that they only want legal sports betting – no casinos, bingo, or other activity. Both land-based and online sportsbooks could operate, with the sports organizations helping to oversee the activity. This includes ensuring “fiscal transparency,” as well as regulatory compliance.

Different Times, Different Attitudes

The stakeholders also applauded the government’s decision to shut down gambling in 2019. It said that, at that time, there was a lot of disorganization and mismanagement that prevented a mature and responsible industry. As a result of that, there were too many operators and little control.

However, the times are changing. Now, starting over from scratch, stakeholders claim Albania could build a robust and viable sports betting solution. This means protecting consumers and contributing revenue to the government.

The head of the Olympic Committee, Fidel Ylli, hopes his close relationship with the prime minister helps. He is also a Socialist Party member and a member of the Committee for Education and Public Media of 메이저토토 Parliament.

Ylli made a similar plea for the return of sports betting earlier this year. However, it never gained traction. There’s no indication Rama has responded to the latest request, either.

Betway to Expand Genius Sports Partnership to Increase Player Engagement

Betway wants to make sure it’s capitalizing on its relationship with Genius Sports. The sports betting platform is now adding new services 메이저놀이터 that will increase the options it delivers to its users.

Genius Sports

Betway, owned by Super Group, will add two new Genius Sports services to its sports betting platform. LiveData and LiveTrading are arriving to give the operator additional data solutions for a number of sports, including the NFL, the English Premier League, and others. Genius Sports is the NFL’s official data supplier.

Adding LiveData and LiveTrading allows Betway to provide real-time statistics and official sports betting data. It also enables the 메이저토토사이트 use of Genius Sports’ proprietary Next Gen Stats (NGS) solution to provide quicker distribution of the data. Game streaming capabilities strengthen the array of services.

“As our brand continues to grow globally, we are constantly seeking new ways to enhance the Betway customer experience, and this data and technology achieves that,” Betway CEO Anthony Werkman said about the partnership.

New Data Deal Drives Growth

In addition to the ability to deliver enhanced data and sports betting solutions, Betway gains another edge. By adding Genius Sports’ data tools, it is also gaining access to the provider’s digital marketing and free-to-play options.

It will now be able to offer targeted data-driven campaigns across multiple media channels, including connected TV. This, according to the company, will increase player engagement and strengthen retention.

Betway is live in five US states, as well as a number of international jurisdictions. But the company is currently seeking to expand its global footprint.

Genius Sports Continues to Add New Ground

Genius Sports signed another expanded partnership deal this month. A week ago, it announced that bet365 would take advantage of its game streaming services, building on a three-year-old relationship.

The news hasn’t yet provided a lot of support for Genius Sports’ stock, GENI. However, it closed out 2021 at $7.60 and saw an uptick to $7.87 on Jan. 3 of this year. However, since then, the market hasn’t been kind. Instead, it has been on a downhill slide, with only a couple of high points. As of the afternoon of Jan. 25, the stock was down to $5.82.

This drop hasn’t deterred analysts 메이저토토 from backing the company. Benjamin Chaiken of Credit Suisse is the latest to get behind Genius Sports. He gave it an “outperform” rating last week, with a price target of $15.

Chaiken calls the company an “attractive way to gain leverage to the growth of global gaming revenue.” He adds that in-game betting will drive the market higher, pushing almost all industry players higher.

New York Mobile Sports Betting Handle Exceeds $600M in First Nine Days

The New York State Gaming Commission released its first batch of weekly financial figures for mobile sports betting on Friday. The numbers show the state generated $24.6 million in tax revenue for the first nine days 메이저놀이터 since the first apps launched.

(Image: Sky Sports)

BetRivers, Caesars Sportsbook, DraftKings, and FanDuel combined to accept $603.1 million in wagers from the start of sports betting on Jan. 8 through last Sunday. The Commission plans to announce figures on a weekly basis with the week ending on the previous Sunday.

Of that total, the four sportsbooks reported gross gaming revenues of $48.2 million.

New York taxes mobile sports betting operators at 51 percent. That’s based on the proposals the Gaming Commission received from applicants last year.

BetMGM went live last Monday. BallyBET, PointsBet, Resorts World Bet, and Wynn Interactive await clearance from the Gaming Commission to launch.

According to data from GeoComply, nearly 880,000 New Yorkers set up sports betting accounts during the first 10 days of operation. The overwhelming majority of those users are first-timers in a regulated marketplace.

NY Sports Betting By the Numbers

New York’s numbers were expected to be high simply based on the fact it’s currently the largest state, by population, to offer mobile sports betting, and it’s also one of the largest state economies in the country.

Putting New York’s numbers in perspective, New Jersey – which competes with Nevada for sports betting bragging rights – reported sportsbook revenues of $59 million for the entire month of December.

Speaking of New Jersey, New York’s neighbor needed two years to generate a monthly handle exceeding $600 million.

From a tax revenue perspective, New York took in more taxes in nine days than Pennsylvania’s 36 메이저토토사이트 percent tax has generated for that state in any one month of the 2022 fiscal year so far.

New York’s mobile sports betting operators needed less than 10 days to surpass the revenues the state’s retail sportsbooks at the four upstate casinos have earned since they opened more than two years ago. Those four brick-and-mortar sites have generated $39.6 million in winnings.

The $24.6 million in tax revenue works out to a pace of $82 million in tax revenue for the month. That pace is helped by the fact the NFL season has reached the playoffs, and most states see sports betting numbers taper off when football ends.

New York’s budget anticipated generating $249 million in revenue for this fiscal year, which ends in March. Of that, $200 million has been received already through licensing fees. For the 2023 fiscal year, which starts in April, the state has forecast revenues of $357 million. Eventually, the state expects tax revenues to exceed $500 million annually by the 2026 fiscal year.

Caesars is the King of New York, So Far

So far, according to Gaming Commission data, Caesars Sportsbook is the king of New York’s sports betting apps.

For the first nine days of operation, the Caesars app generated a handle of $257.7 million and winnings of $22.7 million.

FanDuel reported a handle of $200.3 million since launching on Jan. 8. The Flutter Entertainment sports betting operator took in revenues of $14.1 million.

DraftKings received $134.4 million in wagers and claimed $10.9 million in revenues.

BetRivers, operated by Rush Street Interactive, had a handle of $10.6 million and revenues of $446,696.

Paysafe Gains Louisiana, Oregon Market Access

Shares of Paysafe Ltd. (NYSE:PSFE) are rallying Monday. That’s after the provider of digital payments services said it’s now 먹튀검증사이트 processing payments for sportsbook operators in Louisiana and Oregon.

That new market access for the fintech company comes about because of prior relationships with Caesars Entertainment (Louisiana) and DraftKings (Louisiana and Oregon). In midday trading, Paysafe is higher by more than 4% on news of the new market entries. Paysafe has longstanding, multi-state payments partnerships with both gaming companies.

Paysafe’s entry into the Oregon and Louisiana sports-betting markets sees the company now supporting sportsbook operators with payments and affiliate marketing in 20 states plus Washington, DC,” according to a statement issued by the company.

Sports betting is currently live and legal in 30 states and Washington, DC.

Paysafe Could Love Louisiana

Louisiana is a recent entrant 먹튀검증 to the regulated sports wagering market in the US. But the southern state could be a fertile opportunity for payments processors, such as Paysafe.

Prior to legalizing sports wagering, the state was the fifth-largest gaming market in the country, and data indicates it’s off to a fast start with sports betting. Sports wagering at Louisiana brick-and-mortar locations debuted in the fourth quarter, with BetMGM, BetRivers, Caesars Sportsbook, DraftKings, and FanDuel recently rolling out mobile apps in the state. Data confirms the state’s mobile debut is a success, with the number of transactions topping those in some larger states while comparing favorably with New York on a per capita basis.

Citing the American Gaming Association, Paysafe says Louisiana could be a $5.1 billion sports betting market when it reaches maturity.

“Paysafe is also optimizing Louisiana sportsbook customer conversions through the affiliate software of Income Access. Several Louisiana sportsbook operators, including Caesars Entertainment for its Caesars Sportsbook, are using the Income Access affiliate platform to track their affiliate programs,” according to the statement.

Oregon, Too

Last month, DraftKings became Oregon Lottery’s exclusive sportsbook provider, paving the way for PaySafe to enter that state as well. In that state, bettors can fund DraftKings Sportsbook accounts through the operator’s connection to Paysafe’s payment gateway. Oregon isn’t a massive sports wagering market, but it adds to Paysafe’s scale.

As of February 14th, 2022, the company supports approximately 75 percent of operators in the country with payments or marketing solutions across 21 jurisdictions,” said the company.

Paysafe is also the leading payments processor for gaming companies in Canada and Europe. In the former, the fintech company works with the bulk of that country’s top regulated iLottery and gaming brands.

BetMGM Enters Illinois Just in Time for Mobile Betting Registration

BetMGM, one of the largest iGaming and online sportsbook operators in the US, announced today it’s accepting sports wagers in Illinois.

Illinois BetMGM

The news arrives as the already thriving regulated sports betting market in the sixth-largest state is waiving its in-person registration requirement. That means bettors don’t have to go to a land-based casino to be eligible to place wagers via computers and mobile phones.

This launch marks a significant milestone for BetMGM as we enter one of the country’s biggest sports betting markets,” said BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt in a statement.

BetMGM is a 50/50 joint venture of MGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM) and Entain Plc (OTC:GMVHY). Illinois is the 22nd market the operator entered, and in those states, the company usually leads in terms of internet casino market share (in states where that’s allowed) and is among the top three for online sports betting share.

Fresh off its January debut in New York, BetMGM’s launch in Illinois is relevant to industry analysts and investors. That’s because the company has an established record of iGaming and sports wagering leadership in nearby Michigan.

Good Timing for BetMGM

Indicating that BetMGM has some impeccable timing regarding its Illinois entry, the state’s in-person registration mandate is no longer in effect as of today.

That could open the floodgates in a state that generated a handle of nearly $9 billion in less than two years of regulated sports betting. When Illinois initially went live with sports betting on March 9, 2020, the state rolled out an 18-month waiting period for online operators, such as DraftKings and FanDuel, to give land-based casino operators a head start.

Those internet operators skirted that mandate by applying their brands to local casinos. Later, as the state faced budget woes owing to the coronavirus pandemic, Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) waived the in-person registration requirement to boost revenue.

He again implemented it last April amid a surge of COVID-19 cases in the state. Even with the on-again, off-again live registration mandate, Illinois ascended the ranks of states by sports betting handle, placing fourth as of the end of 2021.

Good Timing Part II

Based on the $8.9 billion as of Dec. 31, 2021 — the period for which data are most recently available — adults in Illinois are wagering $9,341 a minute on sports, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Alone, that point confirms the allure 토토사이트 of Illinois to gaming operators. But further cementing the notion that BetMGM’s timing is excellent is the fact that the NCAA Tournament — annually one of the most wagered-on sporting events in the US — starts on March 13.

With multiple teams from Illinois expected to be in the tournament, and perhaps up to seven Big 10 teams making the field, March Madness 2022 could be a significant revenue generator for Illinois and the sports wagering companies operating there.

Wynn Resorts Folds on Digital Marketing Spend in Favor of Affiliate Model

Wynn Resorts officials told Nevada gaming regulators yesterday that the company has greatly changed its marketing strategy as 메이저놀이터 it relates to its digital gaming unit.

Wynn Resorts Senior VP and Treasurer Vincent Zahn provided insights into how its digital unit is being promoted. He was appearing before the Nevada Gaming Control Board (NGCB) to discuss the company’s application for a delayed public offering.

Zahn told the state that the overly competitive sports betting marketplace has rendered traditional advertising costs unreasonable.

Zahn explained that Wynn Interactive, which oversees the company’s WynnBet sports betting and interactive gaming division, is no longer aggressively marketing in the emerging gaming verticals. Instead, the Wynn executive said the organization is engaging in affiliate customer acquisition models.

We cut back on media spending and we shifted the business … to more of an affiliate-based customer acquisition model,” Zahn said, as first reported by CDC Gaming Reports.

Zahn concluded that traditional advertising for sports betting and iGaming products currently presents an “irrational” cost of customer acquisition.

Affiliate Marketing

WynnBet is operational in nine states — Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, and Virginia.

WynnBet’s robust marketing budgets were 메이저토토사이트 used to produce and air star-studded celebrity commercials. The spots were headlined by Ben Affleck, Shaquille O’Neal, and Jennifer Lopez’s mother, Lupe Lopez. But Wynn Resorts is now betting not on celebrities, but affiliate marketing schemes to sign-up new sportsbook and internet casino accounts.

At its core, affiliate marketing is the concept of an entity such as an online website marketing and promoting another company’s products. When a user clicks through from the affiliate site to the product and makes a purchase, the affiliate receives a commission based on the sales generated by that customer.

“Affiliate marketing creates mutually beneficial relationships between companies and their affiliates, and significantly reduces the cost of customer acquisition,” explained LeadDyno, an affiliate marketing firm that is primarily focused on e-commerce.
