Casinos have been the subject of fascination by many for decades. Both online casinos and brick and mortar establishments are subject of admiration by fans and detractors alike but especially by artists: movies, songs, books and may other forms of art have been created around the theme of casinos, in particular casinos in Las Vegas where gambling is basically a requirement for visitors and residents alike. Some of the tributes that have been paid to the memory of Las Vegas include hits like the movie Leaving Las Vegas, a sad recollection of the life of an alcoholic who wishes to spend the last days of his lifetime in Vegas, the gambling and entertainment capital of the world, giving in to temptation, but instead finds the love of his life in the most unlikely scenario. Although his problem wasn’t gambling, he does spend quite some time from the movie at a casino, showing the ins and outs of the slots of vegas and the Las Vegas Casino lifestyle.

The popular phrase "you gotta know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em," comes from a Kenny Rogers song. This American singer, songwriter and rumoured free online casino games enthusiast was born in August 21st, 1938 and was able to portray the sentiment that accompanies gambling in a very wise set of lyrics that imply you need to be aware there’s a time for everything and avoid getting caught up in the thrill before you end up losing money you couldn’t afford to spend at the Slots of Vegas.

Other artistic expressions reveal gambling as a much more sophisticated past time, enjoyed only by connoisseurs. We’re talking about movies, especially those starring James Bond (always on the Majesty’s secret service) popping up high tech devices that range from combination safe-cracking machines to guns disguised as watches which he uses during his fantastic, jaw-dropping escapes from fully armed, dangerous enemies. But now, back to the blackjack tables, James Bond has instilled class in gambling and has even turned the Martini into a classic casino drink. Free online casino sites feature slot themes based on this epic action hero.

A classic is "Luck Be a Lady" by Frank Sinatra. This enchanting song made its debut during the famed Broadway musical "Guys and Dolls" during the late 50’s in the US. You’d never guess who sang this wonderful piece? … None other than the always charismatic and mysterious Marlon Brando who bets the love of his life and can lose or win her depending on what lady luck decides. Not very flattering for women, but most certainly a classic that cannot be missed when talking about songs about casino slots of vegas, and women to die for.
