Slot Machine positioning

[ English ]

Volumes have been said on this issue, and the conflict and disagreement about where the "hot" slot machine games are positioned in the casino are still raging – more than sixty yrs after one armed bandits were 1st installed in gambling houses.

The standard rule is that the superior slot games were installed just inside the door of the casino; so that everyone passing by would see actual jackpot winners … be impressed enough to come unto the gaming floor … play. Our presumption is that this is not so anymore.

Almost all of the big name casinos nowadays are gigantic complexes … now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ slot machine games in close proximity to any of the doors.

Yet another standard rule is that loose slot games are placed on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more potential gamblers could see winning jackpots and be inspired to play. Notably however, 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!

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