Featured Projects: Daktronics Brings a Touch of Vegas to Eastern Washington

As part of a $20 million expansion, the casino's owners wanted a jaw-dropping presentation at the entrance.

Brookings, South Dakota-based LED display manufacturer Daktronics  provides the video displays for a new installation at the Northern Quest Resort & Casino, a newly-expanded, Vegas-style casino and entertainment destination located near Spokane, Washington.

The installation features more than 2,500 square feet of LED video displays, and were installed in conjunction with Salt Lake City-based YESCO.

The nine-display installation is comparable in size to many spectacular LED video displays in New York’s Times Square and the Las Vegas Strip, according to Daktronics. The project was part of a $20 million expansion of the property.

Creating a digital media façade, nine LED video displays are installed above the main entrance of the resort. All nine measure 24′ high and feature 10-mm line spacing with SMD LED technology. Four displays measure 8 ½’ wide; three measure 15 ½’ wide; and the final two measure 12′ wide. All displays are spaced in an eye-catching manner along the building’s exterior.

“We considered a variety of LED display options before settling on a nine-display configuration that brings an impressive ‘wow’ factor to the exterior of our world-class resort,” says Northern Quest Resort & Casino Chief Marketing Officer Jen Mitchell. “In looking for an impressive, attention-grabbing design that complimented the new building’s architecture, while taking the exterior windows into account, we selected this fantastic video solution. And we partnered with a great team, YESCO and Daktronics, who handle some of the largest LED video installations in the world.”

Northern Quest Resort & Casino is owned and operated by the Kalispel Tribe of Indians, which are based in Washington State.
