Luck be a lady tonight. Or… a nine-foot-tall chromed-out Lucky Cat.

Lucky Cat is the latest experience Digital Kitchen (teamed with Storyland Studios) created in conjunction with The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Inspired by the maneki-neko, a Japanese emblem of fortune and luck, Lucky Cat is an interactive installation that encourages curiosity and exploration. 

Chrome-covered, nine feet tall and perched inside The Cosmopolitan's glass-walled Strip entrance, the sculpture is fully visible from outside the hotel. From this prominent position, Lucky Cat’s extended paw beckons visitors to take a chance and do something just outside the ordinary.

When visitors place their palm on the paw, a touch sensor is triggered which dispenses a printed fortune from Lucky Cat’s collar. Every guest receives a Cosmopolitan-inspired fortune, but a special few win “golden tickets,” which offer a range of experiences, from one-night stays to cocktails to concerts. Visitors are encouraged to take their photo with Lucky Cat and share their experience via #YouLuckyCat.
