Slot Machine positioning

December 20th, 2018 Leave a comment Go to comments

Volumes have been set forth on this subject, and the conflict and discord about where the "hot" video slots are located in the casino are still raging – more than sixty yrs after one armed bandits were first added to the gaming floor in casinos.

The standard rule is that the better slot machines were placed just inside the main entryway of the casino; so that persons passing by would be able to see actual jackpot winners and be enthralled to come inside and play. Our point of view is that this is definitely no longer so.

The great majority of the big name casinos today are monstrous complexes … you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ slot machines close-by any entrances or exits.

An additional classic rule is that loose one armed bandits are installed on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more potential players could see winning jackpots and be galvanized to play. Notably however, we find that this also isn’t 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 one armed bandits 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!

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