Slot Machine positioning

Volumes have been said on this subject, and the controversy and ruckus about where the "hot" one armed bandits are installed in a casino are still happening – sixty yrs after slots were 1st added to the gaming floor in gambling houses.

The quintessential rule is that the better slot machines were positioned just inside the entry of the casino; so that casino fanatics passing by would see jackpot winners … be stirred to come into the casino … play. Our reckoning is that this is no longer the case.

The great majority of the big name casinos presently are titanic complexes and it is not possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to put the ‘loose’ slot machine games close-by any entrances or exits.

Another standard rule is that loose slot machine games are installed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more folks could see winning jackpots and be inspired to play. Nonetheless, 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!

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