Jane Little visits the world's biggest casino at Foxwoods Resort in Connecticut, owned and run by a tribe of Native Americans once threatened by extinction.

The casino was built by the Mashantucket Pequot tribe, who reclaimed the land taken from them by 17th-century colonists and established a sovereign nation.

The doors are permanently open to the thousands of people who gamble billions of dollars every year on the 8,000 slot machines and hundreds of roulette wheels and gaming tables.
