  1. Casino

    In modern English, a casino is a facility which houses and accommodates certain types of gambling activities. The industry that deals in casinos is called the gaming industry. Casinos are most commonly built near or combined with hotels, restaurants, retail shopping, cruise ships or other tourist attractions. There is much debate over whether or not the social and economic consequences of casino gambling outweigh the initial revenue that may be generated. In the United States, many states are grappling with high unemployment and budget deficits and are now turning to legalizing casinos, often in places that are not tourist destinations. Some casinos are also known for hosting live entertainment events, such as stand-up comedy, concerts, and sporting events. The meaning of the word does not necessarily involve gambling.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Casino

    kas-ē′nō, n. a room for public dancing: a card-game. [It.; from L. casa, a cottage.]

The Nuttall Encyclopedia

  1. Casino

    a club-house or public building in Continental towns provided with rooms for social gatherings, music, dancing, billiards, &c.
