Slot Machine Location

Volumes have been stated on this topic, and the bickering and interchanges about where the "hot" slot games are installed in a casino are still rampant – over sixty yrs after one armed bandits were 1st installed in gambling dens.

The standard rule is that the better slots were positioned just inside the main entryway of the casino; so that fun seekers walking by would be able to see actual jackpot winners and be convinced to come unto the gambling floor and play. Our persuasion is that this is definitely no longer so.

The great majority of the large casinos nowadays are behemothic complexes … it’s no longer possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to put the ‘loose’ slot machine games near any doors.

Another classic rule is that loose slot machine games are put on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more fun seekers could see winning jackpots and be motivated 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 machines.
