Slot Machine Location

Books have been said on this topic, and the contention and squabbling about where the "hot" slot machines are located in a casino are still there – more than 60 yrs after slot games were 1st added to the gaming floor in the casinos.

The quintessential rule is that the very best slots were placed just inside the main entrance of the casino; so that everyone passing by would see jackpot winners … be mesmerized enough to come unto the gaming floor and play. Our inference is that this is no longer the case.

Practically all of the mega casinos today are behemothic complexes and you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to put the ‘loose’ slot machines in close proximity to any of the doors.

Yet another traditional rule is that loose one armed bandits are positioned on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more fun seekers could see winning jackpots and be inspired 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 the slot machines 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 perspective about where to place the loose slot machine games.
