Slot Machine positioning

January 28th, 2018 Leave a comment Go to comments

Volumes have been stated on this matter, and the disquiet and squabbling about where the "hot" slot machines are placed in the casino are still rampant – more than sixty years after slot games were 1st placed in casinos.

The traditional rule is that the superior slot machine games were placed just inside the main entryway of the casino; so that fun seekers going by would see real jackpot winners … be stirred to come inside … play. Our slant is that this is definitely no longer the case.

Almost all of the major casinos today are jumbo complexes and you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to position the ‘loose’ one armed bandits close-by any exits.

An additional traditional rule is that loose one armed bandits are installed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more folks could see winning jackpots and be inspired to play. Importantly though, 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 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 slot machine games.
