Slot Machine Location

October 25th, 2017 Leave a comment Go to comments

Books have been said on this matter, and the conflict and interchanges about where the "hot" slot machine games are positioned in the casino are still there – 60 yrs after the slots were first added to the gaming floor in the casinos.

The traditional rule is that the better slot machine games were positioned just inside the entrance of the casino; so that people going by would see actual jackpot winners … be stirred to come unto the gambling floor … play. Our position is that this is definitely no longer the case.

Almost all of the major casinos nowadays are humongous complexes and you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to position the ‘loose’ slot machine games near to any doors.

An additional traditional rule is that loose slot machine games are placed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more people could see winning jackpots and be roused to play. Importantly 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 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 philosophy about where to place the loose slot machines.
