It's perhaps a by-product of the movie and television industry how enjoying some fun at the casino is associated with living the high-life, which means lots of spending and coming from a life of financial success. The casinos themselves would probably love for it to be highlighted more from the point of view of the possibilities one has when they visit a casino, i.e. walking away with a small fortune after a good session of fun gaming on the slots or at the tables. You can definitely enjoy some good casino fun without spending too much money though. In fact, casino fun can have you spending way less than what is traditionally associated with this popular way of passing the time and taking your chances to see if lady-luck isn't on your side.
