Slot Machine Location

Books have been set forth on this item, and the conflict and discourse about where the "hot" slot machines are located in the casino are still taking place – over 60 years after slot games were first placed in casinos.

The quintessential rule is that the very best slot machine games were installed just inside the main entry of the casino; so that persons walking by would be able to see actual jackpot winners … be infatuated enough to come into the casino and play. Our determination is that this is definitely no longer so.

Almost all of the large casinos presently are colossal complexes … you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ one armed bandits near any doorways.

Yet another traditional rule is that loose slot machines are positioned on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more potential players could see winning jackpots and be galvanized to play. Importantly however, 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 the 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 slots.
