Slot Machine Location

Books have been said on this item, and the bickering and arguments about where the "hot" slot machine games are positioned in the casino are still intense – 60 years after slots were 1st installed in the casinos.

The traditional rule is that the most favorable slot machines were positioned just inside the main entryway of the casino; so that everyone passing by would see actual jackpot winners and be challenged to come unto the gambling floor and play. Our disposition is that this is no longer true.

The great majority of the major casinos presently are oversized complexes … you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to position the ‘loose’ slots close-by any doors.

Yet another classic rule is that loose slot games are put on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more persons could see winning jackpots and be motivated 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 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.
