How Different Types of Historical Design and Architecture Have Inspired Casino Games

One of the most surprising yet effective uses of historical design concepts in recent times has come through the integration of various visual styles in online casino games. How has this been done and what type of art from the past has had the biggest impact?

Ancient Architecture and Art
You'll find games with an ancient setting when you play online casino games at Paddy Power or similar sites. Many slots are built around different themes, such as fruits, gold mining, and fishing. Yet, we can also see a large number of these games based on different historical settings such as Egypt, the Roman Empire, and the Aztec Empire.

Ancient Egypt has long been used as an inspiration for slot games. As well as timeless characters like Cleopatra, these games also usually show the pyramids and classic symbols mentioned here by World History Encyclopedia, like scarab beetles, ankh crosses, and the iconic eye of Horus image. All of this leads to an unmistakable atmosphere where the player feels the power of Egyptian imagery.

The Roman and Aztec empire are represented in similar ways, with the characters and art that we associate with these cultures. Games such as Reel Empire, Temple of Treasures Megaways, and Jane Hunter and the Mask of Montezuma all make it clear where they’re set through clever use of instantly recognizable symbols like masks, shields, and the most iconic buildings.

A Classy Art Deco Style
The art deco style was born in France in the early 20th century and carried on for the next couple of decades. The Chrysler Building in New York is one of the classic art deco examples, while Napier in New Zealand is the world capital of art deco since it was rebuilt in 1931 using this style following an earthquake, as reported on the Napier City Council website.

With bright colors and interesting geometric designs, it’s one of the most easily recognizable design trends, which is why it works so well in casinos. Like those games we looked at earlier, one glance at the images is going to be enough for most people to instantly understand the theme and immerse themselves in it.

Some slots have been based on art deco, but it’s in live dealer games that it’s most made an impact. Lightning Roulette and Lightning Baccarat by Evolution both use stunning black and gold studios from which a smartly-dressed human dealer carries out their role. The use of art deco elements in some Las Vegas casinos may be part of the reason this works so well, or it could simply be the fact that an elegant look like this fits many people’s ideas of playing in a casino.

An interesting aspect of these themes is that they don’t really affect the gameplay. For instance, those slots mentioned earlier all have different features but those features could be swapped between them without diminishing the effect of the visual design. This means that we should continue to see game creators continue to try out new themes while exploring the popular themes we’ve looked at he
