A casino is a place where people can gamble and play gambling games. It is also sometimes called a gambling house, and in the United States it is often called a gaming club. Some casinos are incorporated as large hotels or resorts, and they are also commonly combined with restaurants, shopping areas and other attractions.

Most casino games involve a certain degree of luck, but some have an element of skill. Players who have sufficient skills can eliminate the inherent long-term disadvantage of a casino game, which is known as the house edge or vigorish, and make a short-term profit. The most common casino games include baccarat, chemin de fer, roulette, blackjack and poker.

Casinos usually have a minimum bet and maximum win limit, so a patron cannot win more than the casino can afford to pay. To compensate for this virtual assurance of gross profits, they routinely offer big bettors free spectacular entertainment, luxury living quarters, reduced-fare transportation and other inducements. The use of technology to supervise casino games has increased in the 1990s; for example, some betting chips have built-in microcircuitry so that casino personnel can monitor exactly how much is wagered minute by minute and quickly discover any statistical deviation.
