A casino is a facility where people can gamble by playing games of chance, or with some skill. Usually casinos provide drinks, food and entertainment to players while they are gambling. They also have security to make sure all the players are of legal age and following rules and regulations.

In most casinos, customers gamble by placing money on a game of chance with the house taking a percentage of winnings (known as vigorish). Some games have an element of skill and players who can eliminate the inherent long-term disadvantage, known as the house edge, are referred to as advantage players.
