Slot Machine Location

Volumes have been said on this item, and the conflict and squabbling about where the "hot" slot games are placed in the casino are still happening – sixty yrs after slot machine games were first installed in gambling dens.

The classic rule is that the most favorable slots were positioned just inside the door of the casino; so that potential players walking by would see actual jackpot winners … be captivated to come into the casino … play. Our position is that this is definitely no longer so.

The great majority of the major casinos presently are magnificent complexes … it is not possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to put the ‘loose’ one armed bandits close to any doorways.

Yet another traditional rule is that loose one armed bandits are put on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more potential gamblers could see winning jackpots and be encouraged to play. Importantly though, 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!

In recent times, casinos are constantly changing their perspective about where to place the loose one armed bandits.
