Slot Machine Location

Volumes have been set forth on this issue, and the conflict and interchanges about where the "hot" slot machine games are placed in the casino are still happening – more than 60 years after the slot machines were 1st installed in gambling houses.

The classic rule is that the more favourable slot machine games were located just inside the main door of the casino; so that persons passing by would be able to see actual jackpot winners … be challenged to come unto the gaming floor and play. Our leaning is that this is definitely no longer the case.

Practically all of the big name casinos nowadays are enormous complexes and it’s no longer possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ one armed bandits close to any doors.

An additional classic rule is that loose slot machine games are located on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more persons could see winning jackpots and be influenced to play. Notably however, 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 slot machine 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!

Nowadays, casinos are constantly changing their perspective about where to place the loose slot games.
