Casino Design Created With Gambling Habits In Mind
Casinos have always been flashy and bright. The goal of developers in designing a casino is to bring as much attention to the establishment as possible. This is done in a variety of ways.
The glitter and the lights, however, are just part of a completely calculated plan to do as much as possible to keep people gambling. The more props that are used, the better in a casino.
Take for instance the carpets in a casino. Most casinos have loud, stand out carpets, with colors that do not match and patterns that can make your head spin. It is done intentionally, according to some experts.
"Casino carpet is known as an exercise in deliberate bad taste that somehow encourages people to gamble," said Director of the Center for Gaming Research at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, David Schwartz.
Other factors outside of the carpet design are also developed with gambling in mind. The big progressive neon signs that are above each game with jackpots constantly rolling encourage people to sit down and try their luck for big money.
The details are crafted right down to the proximity of the food areas inside of a casino. The creators of the casino want the food as close to the gaming floor as possible. This way, people can eat quickly and go right back to gambling without the opportunity to pass an exit.
Casinos are always looking for innovative ways to keep people at the machines once inside, and the louder and more in your face the design, the better.
