Slot Machine Location

August 15th, 2019 Leave a comment Go to comments

Books have been written on this issue, and the contention and discord about where the "hot" video slots are placed in a casino are still there – over sixty years after the slot machines were first placed in casinos.

The classic rule is that the most favorable slot machine games were installed just inside the main entry of the casino; so that fun seekers walking by would be able to see real jackpot winners and be intrigued enough to come unto the gaming floor and play. Our resolve is that this is no longer the case.

The great majority of the major casinos nowadays are mammoth complexes and you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ slots close-by any entrances.

An additional standard rule is that loose slots are placed on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more folks could see winning jackpots and be energized to play. Notably however, 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!

Nowadays, casinos are constantly changing their philosophy about where to place the loose slot games.
