Slot Machine Location

Volumes have been written on this item, and the conflict and interchanges about where the "hot" video slots are located in a casino are still there – more than 60 years after slots were 1st placed in gambling dens.

The traditional rule is that the more favourable slots were installed just inside the main entrance of the casino; so that individuals passing by would see actual jackpot winners … be baited to come into the casino … play. Our resolution is that this is no longer the case.

Almost all of the large casinos today are enormous complexes … you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to position the ‘loose’ slot machines in close proximity to any of the doors.

Yet another traditional rule is that loose slot games are placed on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more potential gamblers could see winning jackpots and be roused to play. Notably 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 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!

In recent times, casinos are constantly changing their philosophy about where to place the loose slot machines.
