Is Las Vegas mob-free today?

my-mob-photo.jpgI’m frequently asked if the mob still runs the gambling joints in Las Vegas as depicted in the movie Casino. Or have the gangsters been driven out of town?   

It is my opinion that way too much money passes through Sin City to have it free of organized crime. But the days of crime families having hidden ownership and control of the casinos are gone. Corporations are now in charge. And that can be seen as a good or bad thing, depending on one’s perspective.
