What comes to mind when you come across a lady who loves gambling? Well, sit back, relax and enjoy as I give you the reasons why I as a lady enjoy gambling.

First and foremost, I am a designer by profession and one of the things that we designers enjoy is coming up with beautiful and functional designs. We know that the inanimate products we produce end up having a lasting impact in the world and that’s why we enjoy doing it. If you are wondering what this has to do with gambling then here goes. One of the first things that drew me into gambling was the beauty behind the design of casino games. They just draw you in the moment you see them.

It’s this fasciation that got me thinking about the entire gambling industry and this motivated me to develop the AIGA Design Awards platform. Here we look at casinos as more than just places where gamblers go to cure their urges but as hubs of design. I have seen some of the most beautiful casino games purely from a design perspective and this platform, is where I will talk more about them.

I invite you to join me as I explore the beauty of casino games.
