Slot Machine Location

Volumes have been set forth on this subject, and the conflict and disharmony about where the "hot" slot machine games are located in the casino are still intense – over sixty yrs after slot games were first placed in the casinos.

The quintessential rule is that the superior slots were put just inside the door of the casino; so that casino fanatics going by would be able to see actual jackpot winners and be enthralled to come unto the gambling floor … play. Our verdict is that this is definitely no longer the case.

Nearly all of the mega casinos nowadays are herculean complexes … you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to situate the ‘loose’ slot machine games near any exits.

Another traditional rule is that loose slots are positioned on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more people could see winning jackpots and be galvanized to play. However, 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!

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