When I walked through the LINQ Hotel’s entrance everything was happening at once! I was transported into another world, a world of dazzling lights, black jack playing holograms, Virtual Reality games, ultra-modern versions of classic casino games and so much more.
It seemed like an electronic party inviting me to join the fun.
Their original Digital Art Exhibition by world-renowned artist Refik Anadol stood out as it seems to float inside the ceiling’s lighting fixtures, walkways and other displays. According to Anadol, “These dazzling digital art installations are displayed on a variety of digital canvases throughout the casino including two main entrances and 3-dimensional LED sculptural elements on the ceiling. The overall installation is reactive and changes in a choreographed manner as guests enter the spaces, allowing visitors to be an active part of the art experience.
This Digital Art Exhibition has been named to be the world’s largest and most interactive environmental art installation. The LINQ is a synthetic reality experience woven throughout the LINQ casino interior and exterior.
|HOLOGRAM GAMING: This is the first time hologram gaming has been introduced in a casino.
Another first-of-its-kind on the Las Vegas Strip, a new gaming experience challenges you to test your luck against a hologram. Located in the center of the casino, play one of three different games: Tic tac toe; Paper, Rock, Scissors and Pop ‘em. All games capture a moment from the game you can share on social media with your friends. Created by VNTANA, this is the first-ever, gesture-controlled hologram game and marks the first time that hologram gaming has been introduced in a casino.
|VIRTUAL REALITY: With six virtual reality bays, powered by industry-leader Survios, guests can experience the thrill of becoming superstar DJs in outer space or action heroes saving the world against enemy robots. Exciting titles include; Creed: Rise to Glory, Electronauts, Raw Data, Sprint Vector, and more.|
