Slot Machine Location

[ English ]

Volumes have been stated on this item, and the conflict and interchanges about where the "hot" slot machines are placed in the casino are still intense – over sixty yrs after the slots were first placed in casinos.

The standard rule is that the very best slot machine games were installed just inside the entrance of the casino; so that casino fanatics walking by would see real jackpot winners and be inspired to come inside and play. Our belief is that this is no longer true.

Practically all of the large casinos nowadays are mammoth complexes … it is not possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to situate the ‘loose’ slots close to any doorways.

Another standard rule is that loose slot machines are put on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more people could see winning jackpots and be roused to play. Interestingly though, 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!

These days, casinos are constantly changing their perspective about where to place the loose slots.
