Slot Machine Location

Volumes have been said on this topic, and the bickering and disagreement about where the "hot" one armed bandits are located in the casino are still on-going – over sixty yrs after slot games were first placed in gambling dens.

The standard rule is that the more favourable slots were positioned just inside the entrance of the casino; so that persons going by would be able to see jackpot winners … be enthralled to come inside … play. Our deduction is that this is not so anymore.

Most of the large casinos these days are magnificent complexes … now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ slot games near any doors.

An additional standard rule is that loose one armed bandits are located on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more fun seekers could see winning jackpots and be energized to play. However, we find that this also is not 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 very 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 slot machine games.
