Slot Machine Location

Volumes have been stated on this item, and the conflict and arguments about where the "hot" video slots are positioned in a casino are still on-going – 60 years after slot machines were 1st placed in the casinos.

The standard rule is that the most favorable slot machines were installed just inside the main door of the casino; so that people passing by would see jackpot winners and be inspired to come inside … play. Our position is that this is definitely no longer true.

The great majority of the big name casinos today are humongous complexes and now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to position the ‘loose’ slot machines close to any doors.

Another traditional rule is that loose slots are installed on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more persons could see winning jackpots and be influenced 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 one armed bandits 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 philosophy about where to place the loose one armed bandits.
