"Big Casino" is a song by American rock band Jimmy Eat World from their sixth studio album Chase This Light, which was released on October 16, 2007. The single was released on August 28, 2007. The song impacted radio on September 11, 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.

Critical reception

Slant Magazine's Jonathan Keefe said it wasn't as powerful as "The Middle", but gave it praise for having "a memorable guitar riff and exploding into a massive chorus." Brian Hiatt of Rolling Stone was critical of the song's use of synths but still praised it as "an exhilarating seize-what’s-left-of-the-day anthem." Despite giving a negative review of the album and criticizing the track's lyrical missteps, Andrew Blackie from PopMatters called it "a decent rocker with one of the best examples of a soaring ‘emo’ chorus of the year."
