Slot Machine Location

November 2nd, 2021 Leave a comment Go to comments

Volumes have been said on this matter, and the controversy and interchanges about where the "hot" slot machine games are located in a casino are still intense – over 60 yrs after slot machines were 1st placed in gambling dens.

The traditional rule is that the best one armed bandits were put just inside the entrance of the casino; so that everyone going by would be able to see real jackpot winners and be challenged to come unto the gambling floor and play. Our verdict is that this is definitely no longer the case.

The great majority of the large casinos today are super-colossal complexes … now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ slot machines near any exits.

Yet another standard rule is that loose slots are located on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more folks could see winning jackpots and be motivated to play. Interestingly though, 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 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!

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