Synopsis

Las Vegas ... Sin City ... There is no place like it on Earth. The adult playground in the Sun ... The country's greatest resort city ... the gambling capital of the world ... A place of casinos ... Home of the famous, and infamous Strip. It is a city where for the right price every kind of entertainment is available for everyone and anyone at any time ... It is a city that never sleeps. But it is also a uniquely American city ... A Western city ... A desert city. Las Vegas' story is a 20th century tale ... A tale that unites the Mob with the Wild West's culture of cowboys, gunslingers, and saloons. Las Vegas reflects the greater American story of freedom, and the American dream of striking it rich ... The last place where you can arrive as a nobody ... And leave a King. 

Yet it is also a story that would have never been written without the foresight and sponsorship of America's organized crime syndicate ... Organized crime that played out here in Las Vegas differently than it did anywhere else in the country. This series - Las Vegas: The City the Mob Made - chronicles the untold history of this most American of cities ... Las Vegas.
