Slot Machine Location

Written by Julissa. No comments Posted in: Slots

Books have been stated on this issue, and the disquiet and disagreement about where the "hot" slot machines are installed in a casino are still on-going – more than 60 yrs after the slot machines were 1st added to the gaming floor in gambling houses.

The standard rule is that the better one armed bandits were put just inside the main door of the casino; so that casino fanatics passing by would see jackpot winners … be convinced to come unto the gaming floor and play. Our perspective is that this is no longer true.

Most of the mega casinos these days are colossal complexes and it’s no longer possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ one armed bandits close-by any doors.

Another standard rule is that loose one armed bandits are put on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more potential players could see winning jackpots and be motivated to play. Notably though, we find that this also is not 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 one armed bandits 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 perspective about where to place the loose slot games.
