using LEDs in gaming and slot machines

One of the many attractions which brings visitors from all over the world to Las Vegas, Nevada is its amazing light displays. Its blazing skyline is the first thing to welcome people upon their arrival, and the last thing they see as they leave. From the lights along the famous Las Vegas strip, to the Hotel and Casino signs, everywhere you look there are bright bulbs, flashing displays, and of course, a whole array of games- all requiring lighting solutions!

Though the average eye might see only the dazzle, we at Inspired LED recognize the incredible detail and planning required to keep these attractions running. Inside of each casinos are hundreds of games, slot machines, and signs powered up day and night, requiring a massive supply of energy (and a massive monthly bill).

Since 2004, one company has vowed to help change this. Boyd Gaming specializes in original equipment manufacturing for casino gaming products, by using LED lighting within the actual machine itself they are helping to reduce energy costs across Las Vegas. LED lighting, when compared to the normal fluorescent tubes used by many old casino games, is far more economical, and ecological. Fluorescent tubes must be changed out from time to time on the casino floor, resulting in money spent on workers, costly equipment, and disposal fees. The energy and maintenance savings that come from making the switch to LED lighting promise to reach up to 70 percent, according to the Las Vegas Business Press.

Flexible LED lights like those offered at Inspired LED are a fantastic lighting solution for illuminating games, casino displays, and more. Our flexible LED strips are extremely low profile, allowing them to light even the narrowest gaps, and the LEDs are rated for up to 100,000 hours, even when operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week. That’s a whole lot of gaming!

The introduction of this new technology to the casino gaming industry is a win all around, and a great way to show clientele that this booming business is making positive strides towards a environmentally friendly future.
