Slot Machine Location

Books have been said on this item, and the bickering and disagreement about where the "hot" video slots are placed in the casino are still intense – more than sixty years after slot machine games were first placed in casinos.

The standard rule is that the very best slots were put just inside the entrance of the casino; so that folks passing by would be able to see actual jackpot winners and be captivated to come into the casino and play. Our belief is that this is definitely no longer true.

Practically all of the mega casinos today are mammoth complexes and you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to position the ‘loose’ slot games near to any doorways.

Yet another standard rule is that loose slots are placed on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more people could see winning jackpots and be encouraged to play. However, 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 machine 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 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 one armed bandits.
