Slot Machine positioning

January 20th, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments

Volumes have been set forth on this topic, and the conflict and arguments about where the "hot" slot games are positioned in a casino are still intense – sixty years after one armed bandits were first placed in gambling houses.

The traditional rule is that the more favourable slots were installed just inside the entrance of the casino; so that folks passing by would be able to see jackpot winners and be tempted to come unto the gaming floor and play. Our feeling is that this is no longer true.

The majority of the mega casinos presently are super-colossal complexes … it is not possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to situate the ‘loose’ slot machines close to any doorways.

An additional classic rule is that loose one armed bandits are positioned on the major aisles in 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 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!

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