A majority of the gambling population consider casinos to be a place for entertainment merely. They consider it to be a room full of tables and other machines that bring joy and a tad bit of money to the customers. However, it is much more than a room filled with devices. Every inch and aspect of a casino is planned and curated in such a way that the players subconsciously keep playing for as long as possible.
Until recently, most casinos around the world followed a simple casino interior design, with widely accepted design principles. Hence, this led to the similarity of almost all the game rooms. However, this widely accepted wisdom of décor started facing their challenges, not until the past decade, where the transformations in the interiors began.
Traditional casino designs
Las Vegas is the home to traditional casino designs, that were followed even during the medieval times. Bill Friedman, who is a popular casino executive in Vegas nearly spent many years analyzing the floor designs and other interiors of the most successful casinos in the world and generated his findings in the thirteen principles to a casino floor design. Post this finding, for many years, his book was considered the bible for following traditional casino designs. Some of these findings depict:
- The maze-like structure which traps you inside the ambience
- Short lines of sight
- Haphazard placement of the machines to confuse the customers
- Lower ceilings
- Filling the ambience with artificial lights and minimal natural light
- Superfluous decoration
Thanks to Friedman, that rightly imparted the disconnect in the pattern with lavish and exorbitant superficial exteriors and outer layers, with minimal, ding, noisy and kind of vulgar gaming room, which weren’t easy on the eyes
Lessons learned from online slots.
Once the online casino sites started to gain traction, they were not bound by the regular or the traditional casino constraints. While many of the online sites emulate the same colour codes and designs from the conventional establishments, they pretty soon decided to branch out from the cycle and create sticking exteriors as well as interiors for the casinos.
This can also be one of the reasons why people started getting attracted to online platforms, rather than the traditional offline ones. With a multitude of casinos, that offers various themes and other perks, available at their fingertips, the importance of their land-based counterparts started to fade profoundly.
Harmony of design
However, over recent years, many of the casino dwellers and designers have started having the themes and the interior decors of the place. They are vastly invasion in creating opulent designs with rich and luxurious exciters, in contrast to the otherwise anonymous, underwhelming and outdated game room ideas.
According to a study, the trend from the land-based casinos has changed, and a 2019 report states that nearly 700 million dollars are spent every year in revamping the casino ambience and interiors.
