Slot Machine Location

[ English ]

Books have been stated on this subject, and the bickering and arguments about where the "hot" slot machine games are placed in the casino are still raging – sixty yrs after slot games were first placed in casinos.

The classic rule is that the very best slot games were placed just inside the main foyer of the casino; so that casino fanatics walking by would see real jackpot winners … be drawn to come into the casino … play. Our assurance is that this is no longer the case.

Practically all of the large casinos these days are behemothic complexes and it is not possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ slot machines in close proximity to any exits.

Yet another traditional rule is that loose one armed bandits are installed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more persons could see winning jackpots and be encouraged 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 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!

Today, casinos are constantly changing their perspective about where to place the loose one armed bandits.
