Slot Machine Location

Books have been stated on this matter, and the controversy and feuds about where the "hot" one armed bandits are placed in a casino are still taking place – 60 years after one armed bandits were 1st placed in the casinos.

The classic rule is that the more favourable slots were positioned just inside the main foyer of the casino; so that potential players passing by would see jackpot winners … be challenged to come into the casino and play. Our point of view is that this is definitely no longer the case.

Most of the major casinos presently are gigantic complexes and it is not possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ slot machine games in close proximity to any entrances.

Yet another standard rule is that loose slot machines are installed on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more fun seekers could see winning jackpots and be inspired 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 the slot machines 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 very 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 machine games.
