Slot Machine positioning

November 8th, 2022 Leave a comment Go to comments

Volumes have been set forth on this matter, and the bickering and interchanges about where the "hot" slot machine games are placed in the casino are still taking place – more than sixty years after slot machine games were first added to the gaming floor in gambling dens.

The quintessential rule is that the best slot games were located just inside the main doorway of the casino; so that everyone going by would see real jackpot winners … be intrigued enough to come into the casino and play. Our theory is that this is definitely no longer so.

The great majority of the big name casinos nowadays are monstrous complexes and you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ one armed bandits close to any doorways.

Yet another traditional rule is that loose one armed bandits are put on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more potential gamblers could see winning jackpots and be roused to play. Interestingly 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 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!

Today, casinos are constantly changing their philosophy about where to place the loose slot games.
