Slot Machine Location

[ English ]

Volumes have been stated on this topic, and the controversy and feuds about where the "hot" slot machine games are located in a casino are still ongoing – sixty yrs after one armed bandits were 1st placed in the casinos.

The traditional rule is that the best slot machines were located just inside the main doorway of the casino; so that individuals going by would be able to see real jackpot winners and be attracted to come unto the gaming floor and play. Our slant is that this is not so anymore.

The majority of the mega casinos presently are giant complexes … it’s no longer possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to put the ‘loose’ slots near to any entrances or exits.

An additional classic rule is that loose slot machine games are located on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more potential players could see winning jackpots and be roused 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 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 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 one armed bandits.
