Slot Machine Location

Books have been stated on this issue, and the disquiet and disharmony about where the "hot" slot machines are placed in the casino are still rampant – more than sixty yrs after slot machine games were first installed in the casinos.

The traditional rule is that the best slot machines were placed just inside the entrance of the casino; so that people passing by would be able to see jackpot winners and be stimulated to come into the casino … play. Our stance is that this is definitely no longer true.

Nearly all of the major casinos presently are magnificent complexes and you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to put the ‘loose’ one armed bandits near to any doorways.

Another standard rule is that loose slot games are located on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more potential players could see winning jackpots and be influenced to play. Importantly though, 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 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!

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