Slot Machine Location

Books have been said on this topic, and the conflict and discussion about where the "hot" video slots are positioned in the casino are still bubbling – more than 60 yrs after slot games were first placed in the casinos.

The classic rule is that the better slot machine games were installed just inside the main entrance of the casino; so that everyone walking by would be able to see jackpot winners … be aroused to come into the casino … play. Our theorem is that this is definitely no longer the case.

Just about all of the major casinos presently are massive complexes and it is not possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ slot machines close to any entrances or exits.

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

In recent times, casinos are constantly changing their perspective about where to place the loose slot machine games.
