Slot Machine Location

[ English ]

Volumes have been stated on this issue, and the contention and face-offs about where the "hot" video slots are located in the casino are still ongoing – more than sixty yrs after the slots were first placed in casinos.

The standard rule is that the better slot games were placed just inside the main door of the casino; so that potential players passing by would be able to see actual jackpot winners … be stimulated to come inside and play. Our conclusion is that this is definitely no longer true.

The great majority of the big name casinos presently are super-colossal complexes and it is not possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ one armed bandits in close proximity to any entrances.

Yet another standard rule is that loose slot machines are located on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more persons could see winning jackpots and be inspired to play. However, we find that this also isn’t a universal rule any more.

What casinos found over the years is that people walking down the busy aisles were frequently on the way to somewhere else. If they played one armed bandits at all, they would simply put in their loose change because they happened to be walking by. Win or lose, they would very often not stop to keep playing. And the last thing a casino wants is for someone to win a jackpot by playing only a few coins and then not stay to put it all back in!

These days, casinos are constantly changing their perspective about where to place the loose slot games.
