Slot Machine Location

February 11th, 2018 Leave a comment Go to comments

Volumes have been set forth on this matter, and the disquiet and disagreement about where the "hot" one armed bandits are located in a casino are still happening – 60 years after the slots were 1st placed in gambling houses.

The classic rule is that the more favourable slots were installed just inside the main foyer of the casino; so that potential players walking by would see real jackpot winners … be attracted to come unto the gaming floor and play. Our philosophy is that this is not so anymore.

The great majority of the mega casinos presently are herculean complexes and you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ one armed bandits close-by any doors.

An additional standard rule is that loose slot machine games are located on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more fun seekers could see winning jackpots and be galvanized 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 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 one armed bandits.
