"Big Casino" is a single by the band Jimmy Eat World from their fifth studio album Chase This Light, which was released on October 16, 2007. The single was released on August 28, 2007.
The song title is taken from the name of a side project of Jimmy Eat World singer Jim Adkins
, titled Go Big Casino
The song premiered on Jimmy Eat World's official website, and the album Chase This Light's official new website. Some time after, it was added to a revamped Jimmy Eat World MySpace. On October 16, 2007 the song was physically released as a single.
The Big Casino video was shot at the Las Vegas Neon Museum Boneyard in a single day (with a return for pickups at night), featuring the band playing among the yard's old billboards and casino neon signs. While the band plays during parts of the verses Jim Adkins
is seen walking around parts of the yard dragging his guitar with him. As the video progresses it switches between night and day, with many of the billboards and signs being lit up, with the moon also in view.
The video premiered on Yahoo October 22 2007 followed by being added to Jimmy Eat Worlds official website on 23 October 2007, and moments later was added to Jimmy Eat World's YouTube and Universal Music's YouTube.
The music video is currently playing on MTV, Fuse and Vh1.
