Slot Machine Location

[ English ]

Volumes have been written on this subject, and the debates and discourse about where the "hot" video slots are located in the casino are still taking place – over 60 years after one armed bandits were 1st placed in gambling houses.

The quintessential rule is that the very best slot machine games were positioned just inside the door of the casino; so that everyone passing by would be able to see real jackpot winners … be attracted to come unto the gambling floor … play. Our theorem is that this is definitely no longer the case.

The majority of the big name casinos nowadays are enormous complexes … you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to put the ‘loose’ slots close to any entrances or exits.

An additional standard rule is that loose slot games are positioned on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more potential gamblers could see winning jackpots and be encouraged to play. 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 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!

Nowadays, casinos are constantly changing their perspective about where to place the loose slot machine games.
