Slot Machine Location

Books have been set forth on this item, and the bickering and disharmony about where the "hot" one armed bandits are installed in the casino are still ongoing – over sixty yrs after the slot machines were 1st placed in the casinos.

The traditional rule is that the most favorable slot machine games were installed just inside the entry of the casino; so that individuals going by would be able to see real jackpot winners and be impressed enough to come into the casino … play. Our assurance is that this is not so anymore.

Many of the large casinos these days are humongous complexes … you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to situate the ‘loose’ slot machines close-by any entrances.

Another standard rule is that loose slot games are located on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more potential players could see winning jackpots and be encouraged to play. Importantly however, 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 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 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!

Nowadays, casinos are constantly changing their philosophy about where to place the loose slot machines.
