Slot Machine positioning

Books have been stated on this subject, and the disquiet and feuds about where the "hot" slot games are installed in the casino are still intense – over 60 years after the slots were 1st installed in gambling dens.

The standard rule is that the most favorable slot machines were installed just inside the main doorway of the casino; so that persons passing by would be able to see real jackpot winners and be stimulated to come unto the gambling floor and play. Our perspective is that this is no longer the case.

Many of the major casinos today are humongous complexes and it is not possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to situate the ‘loose’ one armed bandits in close proximity to any exits.

Another traditional rule is that loose one armed bandits are placed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more potential gamblers could see winning jackpots and be motivated to play. Importantly 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 slots 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 slot games.
