Slot Machine Location

Books have been set forth on this topic, and the disquiet and interchanges about where the "hot" one armed bandits are placed in the casino are still taking place – more than 60 yrs after slots were 1st placed in casinos.

The standard rule is that the more favourable one armed bandits were positioned just inside the entry of the casino; so that potential gamblers going by would see real jackpot winners … be stirred to come into the casino and play. Our frame of mind is that this is definitely no longer so.

Many of the mega casinos these days are titanic complexes and you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to position the ‘loose’ slot machine games near any entrances or exits.

Another standard rule is that loose one armed bandits are placed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more fun seekers could see winning jackpots and be encouraged to play. Interestingly though, we find that this also is not 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 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 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!

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