Michael Pollock, managing director for research firm Spectrum Gaming, visited Cuba earlier this year on a personal trip, and noticed that many sites displayed portraits of Meyer Lansky, whom one U.S. senator in 1950 called one of the 10 most wanted U.S. racketeers. Lansky brought to Cuba the biggest gamblers from Las Vegas, Reno and New York. The character Hyman Roth in "The Godfather Part II" is based on Lansky, who died in Miami Beach in 1983.

Pollock says casinos won't appear in Cuba anytime soon.
