The Savoy Casino is a fictional gambling establishment featured in the 2012 CBS drama series Vegas. The combination hotel and casino is located in Las Vegas, Nevada and it is one of the central settings of the series. It was first introduced in the program's pilot episode. The Savoy is the base of operations for the character of Vincent Savino, played by actor Michael Chiklis.
During the late 1950s, the Savoy was under the control of mob boss Anthony "Red" Cervelli. Like most such businesses at this time, the casinos were financially backed by ruling members of the Chicago mob and Cervelli had several corrupt officials on his payroll, including the town's sheriff, Clyde. In 1960, the heads of the Chicago family disliked how Cervelli was managing the Savoy and sent Vincent Savino to Vegas to assume control. As Savino put it, he was there to "plant a flag" in the Las Vegas strip.
The mayor of Las Vegas, unable to locate the missing Sheriff Clyde appointed a rancher named Ralph Lamb to serve as interim deputy. Lamb began investigating the murder of the governor's niece, Samantha Meade, who was a credit accountant at the Savoy. Ralph's investigation brought him into brusk contact with Vincent Savino, who quickly realized that this "tough cowboy" might stir up some trouble for him. Lamb solved the murder, which implicated one of Savino's bank managers, Bob Perrin of the crime. (Vegas/Pilot)
