Slot Machine Location

Books have been set forth on this topic, and the debates and disagreement about where the "hot" slot machine games are installed in the casino are still taking place – over 60 years after the slots were first added to the gaming floor in gambling houses.

The traditional rule is that the more favourable slots were put just inside the main foyer of the casino; so that persons passing by would see actual jackpot winners and be titillated to come unto the gaming floor … play. Our determination is that this is not so anymore.

Nearly all of the major casinos these days are giant complexes … now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to position the ‘loose’ slots close-by any entrances.

Another classic rule is that loose slot machines are located on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more fun seekers could see winning jackpots and be galvanized to play. 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 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 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 philosophy about where to place the loose slot games.
