Slot Machine Location

Volumes have been written on this subject, and the debates and discord about where the "hot" slot games are installed in the casino are still bubbling – over sixty yrs after the slot machines were 1st placed in casinos.

The classic rule is that the better slots were placed just inside the main door of the casino; so that persons going by would see actual jackpot winners and be smitten to come inside and play. Our belief is that this is definitely no longer true.

Almost all of the major casinos today are mammoth complexes and now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ slots close to any of the doors.

Another traditional rule is that loose slot machines are placed on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more fun seekers could see winning jackpots and be energized 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!

Today, casinos are constantly changing their perspective about where to place the loose slot machine games.
