Las Vegas until the 40-ies of the 20 century could not boast of the presence of fashionable casinos, there were only questionable game clubs. Only in the 50’s the city began to appear the glory of the capital of gambling. While Europe was filled with luxurious gaming salons and casino link, the US gaming establishments were low-grade clubs with often criminal publics. His heyday and glory, Las Vegas, is obliged to bandit Benjamin Bagsy Sigel, whose specialization was bookmaking betting.

Bugsy became the man who decided to start creating the first chic casino in Las Vegas. Mafia did not really like how Bugsy was doing business with construction, and it was decided to “clean” it. The murder of Bugsy, however, was postponed until the opening of the institution.
