Slot Machine Location

September 27th, 2023 Leave a comment Go to comments

Books have been said on this matter, and the contention and ruckus about where the "hot" slot games are located in a casino are still passionate – over 60 yrs after slots were first installed in casinos.

The standard rule is that the very best slot machine games were placed just inside the entrance of the casino; so that folks walking by would see actual jackpot winners … be baited to come into the casino … play. Our interpretation is that this is no longer the case.

Practically all of the big name casinos these days are huge complexes … now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ one armed bandits close-by any doorways.

Yet another standard rule is that loose slot games are put on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more fun seekers could see winning jackpots and be galvanized to play. Nonetheless, 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!

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