Casino: The True Story

About this programme

The documentary strand presents an exploration of the real-life events behind Martin Scorsese's 1995 film Casino. In the 1970s, around $1million a month was siphoned from Las Vegas's gambling establishments for mob bosses in Chicago. Ruthless enforcer Tony Spilotro, who inspired Joe Pesci's character Nicky Santoro, fuelled a wave of violence until an FBI surveillance operation exposed the Mafia's plot.
