Factual error: When Ace is watching the news report about the investigation of his gaming license and crime connections, you can see the Mirage Hotel in the background of the news studio. The Mirage was not opened until late 1989, and the movie takes place well before that.

Factual error: When Joe Pesci is driving to meet De Niro, he has to change cars. The scene right before going to the garage, they show Pesci's car driving around a corner and at the bottom right of the screen, you see a lamp post with a bus sign on it that reads CAT. CAT (Citizen's Area Transit) wasn't established in Las Vegas until late 80's early 90's. Before that it was the Las Vegas Transit. This scene was supposed to be late 70's, early 80's...

Factual error: We hear Ace in the voiceover talking about Ichikawa, a guest at Tangiers, and Ace says, "About a year ago, he cleaned out a couple of casinos in the Cayman Islands." There have never been casinos in the Caymans. (00:19:10)

More trivia for Casino

Question: Sam and Nicky both refer to "back home" but they do not explain where it is . I thought it was Kansas City because that is where the bosses are, but it's revealed that they are only there because "its as close as they could get to Vegas without being arrested". Does anyone know where in America Sam and Nicky are originally from?

Answer: Frank Rosenthal (the basis for Sam Rothstein) and Tony Spilotro (the basis for Nicky Santoro) were both from Chicago, so that is likely "back home".
