The research for Casino began when news reporter and screenwriter Nicholas Pileggi read a report from the Las Vegas Sun about a domestic argument between Frank "Lefty" Rosenthal , a casino figure, and his wife Geri McGee , a former topless dancer.
Argent was owned by Allen Glick, but the casino was believed to be controlled by various organized crime families from the Midwest.
This skimming operation, when uncovered by the FBI, was the largest ever exposed. Pileggi contacted Scorsese about taking the lead of the project, which became known as Casino.

Filming took place at night in the Riviera casino in Las Vegas, with the nearby defunct Landmark Hotel as the entrance, to replicate the fictional Tangiers.

Roger Ebert gave the film four out of four, stating that "Martin Scorsese's fascinating new film Casino knows a lot about the Mafia's relationship with Las Vegas.
Like The Godfather it makes us feel like eavesdroppers in a secret place. He gave the film five stars commenting "It may not be Scorsese's greatest work, but this guy feeling a little off-colour is still far, far better than most people on fighting-fit form.
It only gets more impressive as time goes on. The film's critical profile has increased in years after its release, with several critics expressing that, in retrospect, they feel it is a more accomplished and artistically mature work than the thematically similar Goodfellas.
