This infographic was submitted to us by Casino Toplists.

There is a ton of information on this little graphic. It’s good to see space used efficiently, and the color scheme lends itself to old Vegas style, which is refreshing. There’s a pretty good amount of data viz, balanced with iconography, and most of the design sticks with the theme.

On the other hand, the way everything is crowded together leaves little to no room for negative space, which is a little exhausting. The Most Expensive Casinos section is one place in particular where I have a hard time focusing on any one thing. I think the inconsistent fonts is also a bit distracting to the eye.

Additionally, the multi-sentence intros at each section are daunting in an infographic. I initially am disinclined to read them because there’s so much else going on with design and data viz. Shortening or eliminating those will help–they also don’t need to be in such a large font, as it makes them look longer than they are.

The IG also seems to be at a poor resolution, which is making the skinny font difficult to focus on in places.

Better spacing, smaller fonts, and less text will vastly improve this IG, but for now it’s about as overwhelming as Vegas itself! I’d give it a B-, because it’s clearly well-researched. It just needs some room to breathe.
