Slot Machine Location

Written by Julissa. No comments Posted in: Slots

Volumes have been written on this matter, and the controversy and discussion about where the "hot" slot machine games are located in the casino are still ongoing – over 60 yrs after slot machine games were first placed in gambling houses.

The traditional rule is that the most favorable slot machines were put just inside the main entryway of the casino; so that fun seekers passing by would see actual jackpot winners and be aroused to come unto the gaming floor and play. Our observation is that this is definitely no longer so.

Just about all of the big name casinos today are herculean complexes and it’s no longer possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ slot machines near any doors.

Yet another standard rule is that loose slot machine games are positioned on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more people could see winning jackpots and be inspired to play. Importantly 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 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!

Today, casinos are constantly changing their philosophy about where to place the loose slot machine games.
