Tese design elements of the interior also help define the spaces of both the Poker room and Fahrenheit casual dining areas, drawing your eye down from the centre of the gaming floor, to the


many offers that spin off it. Te space has been created to give Genting maximum flexibility, as well as to produce an interior design that gives a cohesive whole. Te use of a strong colour palette is muted when it comes to the Salle Privee’s created as a separate design entity to the main casino.
