Slot Machine positioning

Written by Julissa. No comments Posted in: Slots

Books have been written on this subject, and the bickering and squabbling about where the "hot" slots are placed in a casino are still taking place – 60 years after one armed bandits were 1st installed in casinos.

The traditional rule is that the very best slots were put just inside the main entryway of the casino; so that casino fanatics passing by would see real jackpot winners and be possessed to come inside and play. Our stance is that this is not so anymore.

Practically all of the big name casinos today are huge complexes and it’s no longer possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ one armed bandits near any of the doors.

Another traditional rule is that loose slot machines are located on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more folks could see winning jackpots and be energized to play. Nonetheless, 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 perspective about where to place the loose slot games.
