Whenever I see a TV commercial for a casino, all the people are attractive, well-dressed, happy, and look like they're having the time of their lives. Same thing when a movie includes scenes that take place in a casino, or on a set that represents one.

But it's quite a different story when you actually go there. Many people in these places look more like poorly-dressed hayseeds who haven't showered in a week. Half-drunk tourists are wandering up & down the strip in the middle of the day, and sad-looking seniors are pumping their social security checks into the slots as the sun's coming up. Bad behavior abounds, and it's all quite a depressing scene. Maybe the high-rollers who are treated well and play the back rooms and private clubs see Vegas differently, but for the average visitor, it's a far cry from what's seen on TV or in films.
