Slot Machine Location

Volumes have been set forth on this topic, and the conflict and ruckus about where the "hot" video slots are positioned in a casino are still raging – more than 60 yrs after slot machine games were 1st placed in gambling dens.

The classic rule is that the more favourable slots were located just inside the main doorway of the casino; so that potential players going by would see real jackpot winners … be smitten to come unto the gambling floor and play. Our theory is that this is definitely no longer so.

Just about all of the big name casinos nowadays are colossal complexes … it’s no longer possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to position the ‘loose’ slot machines near any doors.

An additional standard rule is that loose slots are positioned on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more potential gamblers could see winning jackpots and be encouraged to play. Importantly though, 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 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!

Nowadays, casinos are constantly changing their philosophy about where to place the loose slots.
