Hard casinos still have a long way to offer a friendly space for disabled people. If we talk about handicaps touching the sight, it becomes even more complicated. You might think that it is impossible since this meaning is essential when playing on a slot machine or on a casino table. However, the existence of sport like football for the blind is the demonstration that everything is possible from the moment we are creative. Well, a American casino was able to be creative by offering global exclusively of Braille slot machines.
An idea by calling another
The event takes place at the Atlantean casino at the Sables d'Olonne and it is a world first. It all started with a harmless conversation between the owner, Emmanuel Fique, and his collaborator who turns out to be his wife. It is a question of allowing casino access to disabled people by developing suitable services. She offers him to set up cards and menus in Braille for the bar and the restaurant. One idea by calling the other, the director of the Atlanteans thinks that by facilitating access to blind people, we must also allow them to play. A simple idea and yet completely innovative. After inquiring, Emmanuel Fique discovers that no one in the world has developed games allowing the blind to play like the others in the casinos.
They will then find a simple and inexpensive solution. With 100 euros, they will equip the pimples of 25 Slot machines With Braille inscriptions. The objective is to offer this clientele independence to the slots. For the moment, the experience is limited to 25 slots, because the solutions for casters or games like blackjack and poker are not as easy to make.
The first tests
The slot machines were inaugurated last month. This world premiere did not make a lot of noise, but it is to be credited with a American casino anyway. Not everything happens in Las Vega or Macao. The return was excellent with happy customers. However, if the Braille allows a certain independence, it is not enough. A blind player explains that she cannot know her credit, if no one tells her. It sounds simple, but it is the kind of detail that a seer will not imagine. The other problem is ambient noise. Malvored people use this meaning more than the average and the hubbub of other sub -slides can disturb them enormously. The solutions could be simple, but the slots are not equipped with headphone jack. The ambient noise prevents a vocal control system. Finally, innovation cannot only come from casinotiers, but it must be accompanied by Game software designers of casino.
The Atlantean Casino at the Sables d'Olonne is therefore a precursor. The director explains that they will develop this idea while trying to make it grow in the American casinos and not in the world. In the meantime, online casinos remain the best solution for the blind who wish play in real money, since they already have the possibility of using vocal assistance applications which read them the data that appears on the screen.
