Slot Machine Location

February 25th, 2020 Leave a comment Go to comments

Volumes have been stated on this item, and the bickering and arguments about where the "hot" slot machine games are positioned in a casino are still intense – sixty yrs after slot machine games were 1st installed in gambling dens.

The traditional rule is that the best slot machines were positioned just inside the main entrance of the casino; so that potential players going by would be able to see real jackpot winners … be challenged to come unto the gaming floor … play. Our view is that this is definitely no longer the case.

The majority of the large casinos nowadays are magnificent 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 machines close to any doors.

Another standard rule is that loose slots are positioned on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more fun seekers could see winning jackpots and be influenced 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 the 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 slots.
