Slot Machine positioning

Volumes have been said on this subject, and the contention and interchanges about where the "hot" slot machines are placed in a casino are still intense – over sixty yrs after the slot machines were 1st placed in casinos.

The quintessential rule is that the most favorable slot machine games were put just inside the entry of the casino; so that casino fanatics going by would be able to see real jackpot winners … be impressed enough to come into the casino … play. Our resolve is that this is no longer true.

Nearly all of the major casinos presently are colossal complexes and now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to position the ‘loose’ slots in close proximity to any entrances or exits.

Yet another traditional rule is that loose one armed bandits are placed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more people could see winning jackpots and be roused to play. Notably however, we find that this also is no longer a universal rule.

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 very 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.
