With every other slot machine turned off, three seats maximum at blackjack tables, similar limitations at other table games, no buffet, temperature checks and dozens of other changes large and small, casinos that have reopened following the Covid-19 lockdown look and feel different. Mike Larson has visited dozens of these reopened casinos, mostly clients of JCJ Architecture, and has come away with some strong feelings on how casino design ha to change in the short term and the long. Space is sometimes limited within a casino environment so social distancing can be difficult—but not impossible, says Larson. Larson talks about all the elements of change and how he’s seen and advised casinos to approach it. Since the Tao Group is a JCJ client, he’s right in the middle of reimagining the nightclub and dayclub experience. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros at the GGB offices in Las Vegas in June.
