Slot Machine Location

Books have been stated on this subject, and the conflict and squabbling about where the "hot" slot games are positioned in the casino are still there – more than sixty yrs after slot games were 1st placed in casinos.

The quintessential rule is that the most favorable slot machines were located just inside the main foyer of the casino; so that everyone passing by would be able to see actual jackpot winners and be stirred to come unto the gambling floor … play. Our disposition is that this is no longer the case.

The majority of the big name casinos today are super-colossal complexes … now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to position the ‘loose’ one armed bandits close-by any entrances or exits.

Yet another classic rule is that loose slots are positioned on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more fun seekers could see winning jackpots and be influenced to play. Nonetheless, 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 the slots 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 one armed bandits.
