Slot Machine positioning

October 27th, 2017 Leave a comment Go to comments

Books have been written on this subject, and the controversy and discord about where the "hot" video slots are positioned in the casino are still on-going – over sixty years after slot machines were first added to the gaming floor in gambling houses.

The quintessential rule is that the very best slot machines were put just inside the main entry of the casino; so that casino fanatics passing by would be able to see jackpot winners and be aroused to come unto the gambling floor and play. Our philosophy is that this is definitely no longer true.

The great majority of the major casinos nowadays are enormous complexes and it’s no longer possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to situate the ‘loose’ slot games close to any doors.

Another traditional rule is that loose slots are put on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more potential gamblers could see winning jackpots and be energized to play. Importantly though, 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 slot 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 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!

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