Slot Machine Location

Volumes have been written on this matter, and the disquiet and ruckus about where the "hot" one armed bandits are positioned in the casino are still rampant – over sixty years after slot games were 1st placed in gambling houses.

The traditional rule is that the superior slot machine games were placed just inside the main door of the casino; so that individuals going by would be able to see actual jackpot winners and be influenced to come unto the gaming floor and play. Our inclination is that this is definitely no longer true.

Practically all of the large casinos these days are massive complexes … now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ slot machine games close to any doors.

Yet another classic rule is that loose slot games are positioned on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more fun seekers 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 slot 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 perspective about where to place the loose slot machines.
