Slot Machine Location

Books have been set forth on this matter, and the conflict and discourse about where the "hot" one armed bandits are located in a casino are still taking place – more than sixty yrs after one armed bandits were first added to the gaming floor in casinos.

The quintessential rule is that the superior one armed bandits were positioned just inside the main door of the casino; so that potential players going by would be able to see jackpot winners … be titillated to come unto the gaming floor and play. Our feeling is that this is not so anymore.

Many of the big name casinos these days are gigantic complexes and it’s no longer possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ slot games near to any exits.

Another classic rule is that loose slots are located on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more folks could see winning jackpots and be inspired to play. Importantly though, 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 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!

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