Slot Machine Location

Books have been set forth on this matter, and the conflict and discussion about where the "hot" slot machine games are located in the casino are still happening – over sixty years after slots were first added to the gaming floor in gambling houses.

The classic rule is that the more favourable slots were located just inside the main door of the casino; so that fun seekers walking by would see real jackpot winners … be aroused to come into the casino … play. Our frame of mind is that this is definitely no longer true.

Just about all of the mega casinos today are enormous complexes … it is not possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ slot machine games close to any entrances.

Yet another traditional rule is that loose slot games are installed on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more fun seekers could see winning jackpots and be galvanized 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 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.
