Casino is a 1980 American made-for-television adventure film directed by Don Chaffey and starring Mike Connors, Barry Van Dyke and Gene Evans. It originally premiered on ABC on August 1, 1980.
Nick is a suave and sophisticated gambler who owns a floating hotel and gambling ship, which is plagued by sabotage on its maiden voyage.
The story was inspired by Mr Lucky. Star Mike Connors originally envisioned a grittier version with the floating casino being run down. However, the success of The Love Boat prompted the final version to be more glamorous.
