“I don’t think most people really understood that they were in a casino” says award-winning financial reporter Mark Pittman. “When you’re in the Street’s casino, you’ve got to play by their rules.” This film finally explains how and why over $12 trillion of our money vanished into the American Casino.
American Casino was an American reality television series which tracks the daily events of the managers and employees of the Green Valley Ranch Casino resort in Henderson, Nevada, a suburb of Las Vegas. The show originally aired on the Discovery Channel, but in June 2005, it was moved to the Travel Channel. In other countries including Europe, the show continued to air on Discovery. The show began airing on June 4, 2004 and was loosely patterned after Discovery Channel's successful American Chopper reality show.
