Slot Machine Location

Books have been stated on this issue, and the contention and arguments about where the "hot" video slots are installed in the casino are still intense – 60 years after one armed bandits were 1st added to the gaming floor in casinos.

The standard rule is that the most favorable slots were positioned just inside the main doorway of the casino; so that potential players walking by would be able to see jackpot winners … be drawn to come unto the gaming floor and play. Our stance is that this is not so anymore.

Almost all of the mega casinos presently are titanic complexes … you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ slots close to any entrances.

Another traditional rule is that loose slots are installed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more potential gamblers could see winning jackpots and be influenced to play. Importantly however, 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 slot 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 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 slot machines.
