Art has inspired a countless number of people, businesses and industries. In fact, studies have shown that incorporating art into the workplace boosts staff productivity
. Therefore, it wont surprise you to learn that the greatest artists of the past have also motivated some of the greatest tech companies in the world. Graphic designers could be considered the true artists of the 21st century such is their influence on the technologically advanced world we now live in.
Much can be said and discussed regarding modern art but graphic designers within the iGaming and casino gaming industry have been able to base many of their popular slot games on famous artists and their paintings. The unique themes have certainly been a hit with casino players. Popular slots such as Da Vinci Diamonds and the Van Gogh slot are probably the most well-known slots to be directly influenced by two of the greatest painters of all time.
One of the positives to these slot games is that they are able to help bring world renowned art into the thoughts of people who would not usually seek it out themselves. Whether the art world could still be considered a frivolity of the bourgeoisie and a playground for the rich can be discussed for days on end. Regardless, in our point of view, the more art that manages to find its way into mainstream thinking the better. Therefore, we have decided to showcase a collection of casino games which have been directly inspired by either famous artists of famous works of art.
Da Vinci Diamonds
Da Vinci Diamonds allows players to admire some of the greatest works of art produced by Italian master Leonardo Da Vinci. Leonardo is certainly one of if not the most famous artist in existence. His work spanned many different areas from canvas art and sculpturing to the science of botany. Leonardo spent his life in the pursuit of learning and education. His work continues to influence the world in 2021.
The Da Vinci Diamonds game is a popular one and can be played at many casinos online. Whilst we will not go into too much detail in terms of how to win. We are a fan of the aesthetics in the game and we hope that anyone who plays the game becomes inspired to discover some of Leonardos real-life paintings and drawings.
The Van Gogh slot, as the name suggests, is based on the paintings and life of Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh. Designed and produced by the lesser-known slots developer Sthlm Gaming, this slot is regarded as an outstanding game. Filled with some of Van Goghs most well-known paintings including The Starry Night and Bedroom in Aries, anyone who plays this slot will be treated to some breath-taking visuals that is for sure.
What Van Gogh himself would have thought about his art being used in such a way remains to be seen! Van Gogh did of course die in poverty and as an unknown artist.
When it comes to art, there is no getting away from the aura of Pablo Picasso and it seems the same can be said for online casino games. This slot uses cartoon like depictions of Picasso and his art. The slot certainly has charm and appeal to it. Again, it would be interesting to know how the artist himself would respond to his name being used for an online casino game!
Picasso is regarded as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century and was prolific in the number of artworks he produced in his lifetime.
Mona Lisa Jewels
Can anyone doubt that the Mona Lisa is the most well-known painting of all time. We certainly cant! Housed in Paris Louvre Museum, the Mona Lisa is also probably the most viewed masterpiece of all time. Out of the 10.2 million people who visit the Louvre each year, it is believed that 80% come just to see the Mona Lisa. It is therefore no surprise to see an online casino game based solely on Leonardo Da Vincis masterpiece painting.
The Mona Lisa Jewels slot is developed by iSoftBet and offers players a progressive jackpot. How much would the Mona Lisa be worth if it ever went on sale? We dont know but the slot version of the painting offers the potential of big payouts!
Reel Crime 2: Art Heist
Featuring symbols which depict real life works of art, this casino game requires the player to choose the tools needed in order to perform an art heist. Players must pick the art they wish to steal, find a buyer, make a sale and then plan an escape. The longer the player evades the authorities for, the more money they will accumulate.
Art Inspiring The World
We hope you enjoyed this look at how art has inspired casino games. Art Daily
hopes that in 2021 art will continue to find its way into the lives of people who may not usually be the ones to seek it. It is our understanding that artist inspired Megaways slots
will be developed in order to continue to mix the worlds of art and casinos together.
Maybe sometime soon we will witness casino games released which are based on more modern artists such as Jackson Pollock or Banksy!
