Slot Machine Location

Volumes have been stated on this subject, and the disquiet and face-offs about where the "hot" video slots are located in a casino are still bubbling – 60 yrs after the slots were first added to the gaming floor in gambling dens.

The quintessential rule is that the more favourable slots were positioned just inside the main foyer of the casino; so that casino fanatics passing by would be able to see real jackpot winners and be drawn to come unto the gaming floor and play. Our resolution is that this is no longer the case.

Just about all of the large casinos these days are grand complexes and you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ slot machines near to any entrances.

Another standard rule is that loose one armed bandits are placed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more folks could see winning jackpots and be influenced to play. Nonetheless, we find that this also is not 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 slot games 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!

Nowadays, casinos are constantly changing their perspective about where to place the loose slot machines.
