Slot Machine Location

Books have been set forth on this issue, and the conflict and ruckus about where the "hot" slots are placed in a casino are still rampant – 60 yrs after slots were first installed in gambling houses.

The quintessential rule is that the better slot machines were placed just inside the main entryway of the casino; so that individuals walking by would be able to see actual jackpot winners and be keen enough to come unto the gambling floor … play. Our viewpoint is that this is definitely no longer so.

The majority of the mega casinos these days are enormous complexes … now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to position the ‘loose’ slots close to any of the doors.

An additional classic rule is that loose slot games are installed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more potential gamblers could see winning jackpots and be galvanized 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 slot 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 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 perspective about where to place the loose slots.
