Re:Match, a new experience at The LINQ Hotel in Las Vegas, features a pretty interactive tech environment: 27 touch screens, a changing selfie station, arcade games, and, soon, hologram gaming.
Let’s take a closer look at each of the pieces that make this underwater-themed interactive tech environment so distinct:
Virtual Sea Life
A virtual world of underwater sea life including sea turtles, stingrays, an octopus, a variety of fish and more can be discovered while exploring the virtual ocean display.
Customers can tap the bar top screen and encounter an overzealous shark, find the lost city of Atlantis or pose for a selfie with a camera-friendly dolphin.
Periodically, one of three games will appear at the Re:Match bar screens to challenge those seated around it — save the Las Vegas Strip from an alien invasion, catch falling money from FLYLINQ riders, or capture the most chicken wings in the “Sticky Chicken For President” game.
Pulse Arena combines luxury electronic gaming machines with an immersive audio-visual entertainment experience. Within the Pulse environment, players can enjoy a variety of electronic casino games either as an individual experience or play socially with friends.
A new gaming experience challenges guests to test their luck against a hologram. Located in the center of the casino, guests will be able to play one of three different games:
- Tic tac toe – against a stone monster, futuristic robot, or even a crafty velociraptor
- Paper, Rock, Scissors
- Pop ‘em – popping as many balloons as players can within the time limit, but avoiding the score-busting bombs
All games capture a moment from the game which can be shared on social media.
Created by VNTANA, the experience center claims this is the first-ever, gesture-controlled hologram game and marks the first time that hologram gaming has been introduced in a casino.
