While Casino (1995) begins with credits stating it is adapted from a true story, it never names the real-life casino involved.

The Tangiers casino is fictional. The story is based upon the history of the Stardust casino, a fact well documented in the Las Vegas history books.
Martin Scorsese discreetly documents this fact via the soundtrack, in which the song “Stardust” is heard three different times. An instrumental version plays during Ace and Ginger’s wedding, and a vocal version is heard during the scene where Remo asks Marino if Nicky and Ginger are having sex, and also during the end of the final credits.

Listen to me very carefully. There are three ways of doing things around here: the right way, the wrong way, and the way that *I* do it. You understand?

The casino scenes were shot at the Riviera between 1:00 a.m. and 4 a.m., so as not to get in the way of the real gamblers. Although the casino didn’t want the shoot to interrupt its business, that didn’t prevent it from trying to lure more punters inside by putting up a large banner that said, “Robert De Niro, Sharon Stone, and Joe Pesci filming the new movie ‘Casino’ inside!”
