Slot Machine Location

March 10th, 2017 Leave a comment Go to comments

Books have been stated on this issue, and the controversy and feuds about where the "hot" one armed bandits are positioned in the casino are still raging – more than 60 years after slots were 1st placed in the casinos.

The traditional rule is that the very best one armed bandits were put just inside the main door of the casino; so that everyone passing by would be able to see real jackpot winners and be stirred to come unto the gaming floor and play. Our conviction is that this is definitely no longer so.

Nearly all of the mega casinos nowadays are mammoth complexes and it’s no longer possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ slot machine games in close proximity to any doors.

Another traditional rule is that loose slot games are positioned on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more persons could see winning jackpots and be inspired to play. Notably however, we find that this also isn’t 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 machine 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 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 philosophy about where to place the loose slots.
