The history of this beautiful casino is really awesome and very long because it was established in 40’s. Interesting is that Flamingo was built thanks to mob money of famous gangster called Bugsy Siegel, who has been shot few day after great opening. The building cost was huge and was equal to six million dollars. Flamingo was the first luxurious casino and hotel in the Las Vegas. The other curiosity about Flamingo is its name. So mobster Bugsy has a girlfriend that he loved much, her name was Virginia Hill, by the way he was shot to death on her eyes. So she had very long thin legs, that’s why Bugsy called her ‘flamingo”. And he gave the same name to his casino resort as a sign of his love.
For all these years that casino have been rebuild few times, to face new era and new expectations of the players. After Siegel death, Flamingo resort passed from hand to hand finally was taken by the Hilton Hotels and now is a part of big casino network that belongs to the Harrah’s Entertainment.
