The Aladin Casino opened in 1966 in Las Vegas, with a later reopening in 1995 until its demise several years later. Without having to explain the obvious. all elements of design and merchandising were intended to reflect aspects of the fantasy/reality in regard to the 1001 nights story of Aladdin. Certainly for many people a trip to the Aladin Casino  in Las Vegas might have been viewed as a snapshot of the  actual Middle East, and while many would be quick to discount such a thought,  some of the construction/design in the last 15 years does come close....
