Slot Machine positioning

[ English ]

Volumes have been said on this subject, and the conflict and discourse about where the "hot" slot machines are located in a casino are still rampant – over sixty years after the slots were 1st placed in gambling houses.

The standard rule is that the very best one armed bandits were located just inside the main foyer of the casino; so that casino fanatics going by would be able to see real jackpot winners and be stimulated to come unto the gaming floor … play. Our estimation is that this is definitely no longer the case.

The majority of the big name casinos today are oversized complexes … you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ one armed bandits close-by any doorways.

Yet another classic rule is that loose slot games are put on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more persons could see winning jackpots and be motivated to play. Importantly 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 the 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 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 perspective about where to place the loose slots.
