Slot Machine positioning

Volumes have been set forth on this issue, and the debates and discussion about where the "hot" video slots are installed in the casino are still there – 60 yrs after one armed bandits were 1st added to the gaming floor in gambling dens.

The classic rule is that the better slot machines were installed just inside the entry of the casino; so that potential players passing by would see jackpot winners and be aroused to come into the casino … play. Our attitude is that this is definitely no longer the case.

Almost all of the big name casinos these days are gigantic complexes and it’s no longer possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to situate the ‘loose’ one armed bandits close-by any exits.

Another classic rule is that loose slot machine games are placed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more potential gamblers could see winning jackpots and be influenced to play. Nonetheless, 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 slot machine 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 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!

In recent times, casinos are constantly changing their philosophy about where to place the loose slot games.
