I was watching a movie the other night and Billy the Kid was calling Pat Garrett "Big Casino" and Pat called him "Little Casino".
It brought back memories from a long time ago when I played a card game with my parents that had cards or hands with those names.
Does anyone know the game? I think Little Casino was the two of Spades.
In NYC, some people call cancer the Big Casino.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

I also played this game as a child, but I have no recollection what the rules are. Now there's a 10 of diamonds bouncing around my head, so maybe there's a slightly better than 1 in 52 chance that this was the big casino card?
