Psychology of Casino Architectures

The psychology of casino architectures is an interesting topic to discuss. As we all know, the interior architectures of a casino and its design is always very fascinating and it takes a lot of details and attention to make it perfect. On the surface, we may find casinos very fascinating and attractive but there is so much more than that. The interior of a casino is built with intense attention on the psychological effects that it has on the gamblers. It does not only play a role in luring players into the casino, but it is also to keep them and retain them in the casino for as long as they could once players have walked into the casino. The following are some of the tricks being applied on casinos:

Walls without Windows

Casinos are built with minimal or no windows at all, creating some sort of a cave-ish environment. This structure is made this way in order to prevent players from distinguishing between day and night. It is a very easy tactic and design that will prevent the players from feeling that it is getting late, or that they need to rush somewhere. Completed with the absence of clocks, casinos are stripped away from every possible measures of time.

Playing the Impulse

While waiting in a queue in the supermarket, you will be tempted to grab a snack, be it a bar of chocolate or a box of candies which are all placed along the aisle. This method which aims to tempt and lure you into buying something more than you actually needed is a tactic, and the items are known as impulse items – and it works every time! Instead of placing items, casinos place their washrooms and pantry/restaurants in the most unlikely corners and places so players have to walk past rows after rows of attractive and fun games in order to get there. On the way, they might get enticed to stop and play.

Labyrinthine Design

If you find the layout of a casino confusing, it is only because it was intentionally made that way. Learning your way around the place might take hours. With every extra corner and turn in the casino, the more distracted the players will get. With every extra corner and turn, an extra game can be introduced to the player. Talk about opportunists.

Luxury and Glamor

Newer casinos place heavy emphasis on luxurious design rather than superstitious beliefs in order to cater to the rich and famous. Instead of creating a windowless casino, architects are saying that windows will add a luxury touch to casinos and will make their players feel much more comfortable and happy playing in them. New age casinos focus on using natural lighting, where white and soft green are high popular. Ceilings are also made high, so players do not feel crowded.

History of Online Gambling

The history of online gambling is diverse. According to researches, it is said the humans have shown interest in gambling long before casinos are invented. Although it is highly common for certain people to regard gambling as an immoral act, it is a known fact that people are always looking for ways to gamble in hopes of earning more money in return. The mid-90s is when the love for gambling has been eased and simplified. Back then, the internet users was growing rapidly and opportunists saw the advantage and started bringing gambling online. Then, players worldwide were able to experience online gambling in the comfort of their own homes all thanks to the development in technology. With online casinos, players no longer need to dress up and prepare themselves in order to head to the casino to play their favorite casino games.

How Online Gambling Started

A small Caribbean nation known as Antigua and Baruda had started the Free Trade and Processing Zone Act of 1994. This in turn gave them the power to give out licenses to entrepreneurs who wish to start their own online casino businesses. This has set the gambling revolution that we see today. It is tricky to track back to the first online casino because the details are insufficient and information is vague. However, according to the University of North Carolina, the first known online casino was established in 1995 with only 18 games to offer. As opposed to that, there are also reports that said Microgaming had the first online casino in 1994. Whatever the case is, the drastic growth of online casinos took place in 1997 and there were more than 200 online gambling websites by the end of that year. In 1998, a research done by Frost & Sullivan has confirmed that more than $800 million revenue was made in that particular year.

The Future of Online Gambling

Online gambling is one of the most lucrative businesses in the world. However, it is often disrupted by legal challenges in many countries where gambling is considered illegal. This does not stop online gambling to continue growing on a global scale. With the help of more advanced smart phones, internet as well as virtual reality technology, online gambling will continue to revolutionize in the coming years.
