That’s Magic

Las Vegas isn’t only about flashing the cash in a casino, there are also a number of top shows, and performances from well shown musicians and the like. People go to Vegas to be entertained, and there is no shortage of residencies from the likes of Robbie Williams and Elton John. Cirque du soleil is another popular option. If you enjoy a casino connection in everything you do there are plenty of magic shows (featuring everything from card tricks to far more dramatic stunts). Popular magicians Penn and Teller have had a residency at the Rio Lav Vegas since 2001.

Playing Cards

There is a certain appealing aesthetic and style associated with casinos. Imagines or bright lights, stylised interiors. Affluent. Celebrity. This visual extends to all aspects of casino, and casino games including playing cards. Here we see a varied collection of decks of cards that one collector has picked up. Packs can be picked up for varying sums depending on the depth of your pockets. Online auction houses such as Potter Auctions even have an annual auction dedicated specifically to playing cards.
