Slot Machine positioning

Volumes have been said on this subject, and the contention and discussion about where the "hot" slot machines are placed in the casino are still happening – 60 years after slot machines were 1st installed in gambling dens.

The traditional rule is that the superior slot games were placed just inside the entrance of the casino; so that people walking by would be able to see real jackpot winners … be mesmerized enough to come into the casino … play. Our slant is that this is no longer true.

Practically all of the large casinos today are immense complexes and it’s no longer possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to put the ‘loose’ slot machine games close to any of the doors.

Yet another traditional rule is that loose slots are installed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more potential players could see winning jackpots and be roused to play. However, 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 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!

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