Slot Machine Location

Books have been set forth on this item, and the contention and discourse about where the "hot" slot machine games are placed in the casino are still happening – sixty yrs after the slots were 1st placed in casinos.

The classic rule is that the best slots were put just inside the main door of the casino; so that fun seekers walking by would be able to see actual jackpot winners … be enticed to come unto the gaming floor and play. Our thought is that this is definitely no longer the case.

Most of the big name casinos nowadays are herculean complexes … you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to situate the ‘loose’ slot machine games near to any doors.

Yet another classic rule is that loose slot machine games are put on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more fun seekers could see winning jackpots and be inspired to play. Nonetheless, 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 one armed bandits 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!

These days, casinos are constantly changing their philosophy about where to place the loose one armed bandits.
