Slot Machine Location

Volumes have been set forth on this issue, and the conflict and discord about where the "hot" video slots are located in the casino are still raging – sixty yrs after slot games were first added to the gaming floor in gambling dens.

The quintessential rule is that the very best slots were installed just inside the main doorway of the casino; so that potential players walking by would see actual jackpot winners … be titillated to come inside … play. Our presumption is that this is not so anymore.

Practically all of the mega casinos these days are colossal complexes … it’s no longer possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to situate the ‘loose’ one armed bandits close to any entrances or exits.

Yet another standard rule is that loose one armed bandits are located on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more potential gamblers could see winning jackpots and be roused to play. Notably though, 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 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!

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