Slot Machine Location

Volumes have been stated on this item, and the bickering and disharmony about where the "hot" video slots are placed in a casino are still bubbling – sixty yrs after slot machine games were 1st placed in casinos.

The traditional rule is that the superior slot games were located just inside the main foyer of the casino; so that folks going by would see jackpot winners … be convinced to come unto the gaming floor and play. Our presumption is that this is no longer true.

Nearly all of the major casinos nowadays are super-colossal complexes and you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to position the ‘loose’ slot machines close-by any exits.

Yet another traditional rule is that loose slot machine games are placed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more persons could see winning jackpots and be energized to play. Notably however, 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 slot games.
